I may never march down your runways,
Wear your bikinis,
Be on your magazines;
I may never fit your ideal for me,
But I'm in the Lord's Army.
(to the tune of "I'm in the Lord's Army")
The days we live in can feel pretty dark sometimes, and we definitely don't need binoculars to see the hurting and the lost. They are everywhere. But God is on the move.
God has a plan for these days - these last days. As the world gets darker, His army will be positioned perfectly to shine all the brighter. But the women in God's army won't shine brighter if they're sitting at home depressed because they've gained a few pounds - or if they're paralyzed by the sight of spiders - spider veins, that is.
Daughters of the King: this is the time to remember that this world is not our home. To remember that our definition of beauty is established in a heavenly kingdom, not a fickle and fading earthly one. There are kingdom things going on - epic kingdom things. And each one of us has a unique role to play in it all.
Let's decide together that we will no longer step on the land mines set for us by our enemy - land mines strategically place with the purpose of getting our focus on things that truly do not matter.
The hurting - in our families, neighborhoods, churches, and world - need us. And they don't really care what pant size we wear.
