So I kept a little secret from you all last week (via my husband’s request)…I was blogging from Disney World!!!
So last Wednesday when I mentioned that I had a whole bunch of plans and my daughter was sick…it was right on the day that we were scheduled to attend a special dinner where you meet all of the princesses 🙁 Big bummer – she missed it. But she’s over it now lol!
This was our family’s first trip to Disney World! We went to Epcot (and got majorly rained on lol!), Hollywood Studios
the Animal Kingdom – which we loved…
And then back to the Magic Kingdom a second time.
There were two things that were profound to me while visiting the “Magic Kingdom.” One, it was completely void of God – there simply is no mention of him anywhere. And two – it’s said to be the “happiest place on earth“. That’s quite a promise to live up to!
So is it possible that the happiest place on earth is a place that is void of the mention of God? Well this one thing I am sure of…in the heart of every human is a longing for a happy place.
We saw little girls all over the parks dressed as princesses…children want to be a part of a royal kingdom.
If you are a child of God – you are a daughter of the one true King! We belong to a royal kingdom! Forget Magic Kingdom – I’ll take God’s kingdom thank you very much :)!
We know that this world cannot be all that there is. Ecclesiastes 3:11 says “God has set eternity in the hearts of men.” We all long for that place deep in our hearts.
This world is like Cinderella’s ball – the greatest day or joy eventually comes to an end. The clock strikes midnight and we fall on hard times. All joys we have here are just a taste of what is coming in heaven. And one day when we enter the kingdom of heaven we will never have to step foot back on planet earth where the clock can strike midnight again. Forever we will be with the King of Kings and there we will live in joy for eternity! What a great hope we have!
Revelation 19 tells us that one day our Prince will come riding on a white horse to take us with him. “I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True…His eyes are like blazing fire and on his head are many crowns…He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God…On his robe and on his thigh he has the name written: King of Kings and Lord of Lords.”
Princesses – Your prince will come for you! If this world has dealt you a royally bad hand – hang on – it won’t be long now till you stand face to face with the King of Kings! Take hope and courage from that – and have courage today to live life with defiant joy! He is worthy!
Walk with the King,
