As I navigate through this life, I often find myself at various stages asking, “Lord who am I? What would you have me do in this life?” I would also wonder…” Will I be a Mother, a Wife, or Entrepreneur?” I really wanted to know God’s desire for my life. As women, we have many roles and our hats are constantly changing. It can become fairly easy to lose touch with who you truly are and who you were created to be. I know for me, figuring out Sharmane became a source of distress at times because as I continue to grow and mature, my desires in life would often change. Even though I wanted to be successful in life, I only wanted to do that which pleased my Father most of all. Then one morning, low and behold, a pearl of wisdom for my necklace of life……
“16 You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. 17How precious are your thoughts of me, O God! They cannot be numbered! 18 I can’t even count them; they are more than the sand! And when I wake up, you are still with me!”
It was through this scripture, I realized 3 things: 1. My father holds the answer sheet regarding my life 2. My Father is always thinking of me, and 3. He is always at my side. So really, I don’t need all of the answers. At some point in my life, yes, I could possibly inhabit all of the titles above (Wife, Mother, Friend, Nurse, Business owner) and then some. However, there would be one title that would always be permanent, one that was established before my birth: I would always be the Daughter of the King!
I am…We are Daughters of the King! Do you understand what that means? This means that no matter what role we find ourselves in, (forget about failure) we have the full assurance that we were destined for Greatness! Do we have all the answers? No. But you see, we don’t need them. The answers to your questions have already been prerecorded in your memoir… it’s predestined. So rest easy and walk into your destiny ladies. Take the good with the bad and learn the lessons as you go. You can’t fail a test you’ve already passed! This is the privilege of being the King’s Daughter.
