Remember Whose You Are

No day is so bad it can’t be fixed with a nap. 
     ~ Carrie Snow
 
But you are the ones chosen by God, chosen for the high calling of priestly work, chosen to be a holy people, God’s instruments to do his work and speak out for him, to tell others of the night-and-day difference he made for you—from nothing to something, from rejected to accepted.
     ~ 1 Peter 2:9
 
     Jacob was  Nigerian prince.  He wore his native attire to school every day, in festive colors of satin.  His laugh rivaled Geoffrey Holders (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kfjM6c0A1Wg).  Prince Jacob had a wonderful wit, a quick smile, a deep faith.  He was one of us, yet a prince among us.  He never pulled rank.  He simply just was himself.  
     You are all princes and princesses, but not as Hollywood or anyone else might portray.  You know how to do things for yourselves. You know how to sneak into a room of common folk and be one among them.  Those of you from humble beginnings, those of you from royal households from the start.  Not all of you wore robes of satin or silk or ermine.  Most of you know terry cloth as a go to comfort for your royal rest.  
     Don’t forget your roots, don’t forget who you are. Don’t forget whose you are. You are God’s right down to the Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
 
Lion King
Today, rest in that, walk in that, even nap in that.  We are so much more than we imagine, in Him.
 
Because of Him,
Linda
