"TV programs and Hollywood films celebrate casual sex and mock those who value purity. At every turn we are confronted with sexual images , and we are brainwashed to believe that sex outside of marriage is the norm and that a woman’s worth is found in being desirable by a man. This redefining of a woman’s value and the normalizing of promiscuity influences a Christian woman’s thinking , and therefore her behavior ." Marian Jordan Ellis part from Sex and the single Christian Girl.

" Arise and Know Your Worth Daughter"
"For He foreordained us (destined us, planned in love for us) to be adopted (revealed) as His own children through Jesus Christ, in accordance with the purpose of His will [because it pleased Him and was His kind intent]– (Ephesians 1:5 AMP)"
As I was reading this morning, the verse stuck out to me, it was like reading it for the first time. I am a daughter of The most high, and so are YOU!!!!
Many of us have come from all different type of back grounds. Some of us dealt with being an “accident child”, may have been abandoned, dealt with rejection issues, feeling alone even in the midst of a family…. Lots of different things right? In turn this has effected the way we have walked through out this life, and how we feel about ourselves….. The foundation we were raised or built on effects a lot of what we except or feel we deserve in life and from people…. But I have some great news…….YOU WERE always……CREATED TO BE A DAUGHTER.❤️👑.
The word Foreordained means:
To appoint or decree something before hand.
So look my dear you (insert your name) were chosen to be a daughter even before your were abandoned, rejected, mistreated…..God knew all that was going to happen even before it happen and still HE CHOSE YOU AND CALLED YOU DAUGHTER❤️. He placed you exactly where he wanted you….. It was not by chance , it was by mistake…. It was on purpose for a purpose. Haha THAT IS EXCITING!! This is all apart of his plan.
"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. (Jeremiah 29:11 ESV)"
SOOO…… Trust in the fact, that he has the perfect plan for your life
I speak to you about this revelation because I wish someone would have told me this growing up. I struggled with insecurities, doubt fear, anger, rejection issues , abandonment and then some. I grew up with very low self esteem and it showed in the things I allowed to be normal in my everyday life. Growing up as a daughter without a father was one of those things I thought would never be fixed …. And I would always struggle with. (HALLELUJAH THAT WASNT TRUTH). Years of searching for value…….Lead me to wrong relationships, sexually and physically abused…. But I say to you, I have been set free !! FREE IN HIM!!! He did what sex, lies, drugs, alcohol, many relationships, addictions , and cravings could never do no matter how I tried! He filled the void!!!!
Just a few things I learned these last 3 years of walking with him.
1.)I am NOT fatherless, rejected, abandoned, forgotten or unloved.
- I have the father daughter relationship I always wanted… God is not just this person in my imagination…. He actually is our father and he loves us more than we can imagine. We are the apple of his eye, he protects us, he guides us into all truth, he gives us wisdom. This may be a hard reality to actually grasp, but I am living proof of this truth. I can talk to him about anything, he listens, and his heart rejoices when I come to him. It’s the most beautiful thing I have ever experienced. He counts me in, he tells me I am worthy, and he encourages and builds me up. Loves me enough to correct me. I can’t begin to explain to you the freedom that comes when you surrender to him. Daughter of God I urge you to surrender those hurts and painful areas to him, he will be the father you need❤️👑. Healing comes to us when we release it to him…He is waiting…. The perfect trade… His burden is light…. Cast your cares upon him. HE CARES.
2.)I am worth the wait.❤️
When I realized who I was to my father, I realized my true value, and that I had been living beneath the standard he set for my life. If you didn’t know before today let me tell you this…… You are worth the wait. We give ourselves over to these relationships , for many different reasons…. It validates something for us. Trust me having sex will not make you whole, and it won’t make him stay, it won’t fill that void, God is the only answer ( as cliche as it may sound this is the truth) No matter what he/she tells you….. If someone cannot value you enough to wait, walk away. You are worth Gods perfect plan for your life. You will get to the bottom of that bottle of alcohol and the hurt will still be there. There is nothing on this earth that even compares to the true confidence and value you get from your father. Daughters, sex is not love! It’s time that we arise and refuse to settle for
Anything less than his best for us!! YOU ARE WORTH THE WAIT!!!! NO MORE COMPROMISING!!!! NO MORE!!!
3.) My past doesn’t define/ limit me.
-Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 2 Cor 5:17.
We have again all gone through different things in life and made decisions and choices out of ignorance….. And we allow that to define the future that lies ahead of us. What we are able to accomplish. See the thing is when God was writing out his master plan for our lives, he already knew the road blocks that would try and stop us, he knew the challenges we would face, he knew all of that, but he did not change the destination or plan he already mapped out for our lives. It’s a lie of the enemy that wants you to believe that your past will always haunt you. When you come into the kingdom and fully surrender your life to God , saying yes to his plan, and no to yours ….. Don’t you know that you enter into his forgiveness . You are born again, its like you are entering the world again for the first time!! The hardest thing for me was excepting this reality ! We create limits and barriers in our mind, GOD NEVER PLACES LIMITS ON US!! I recognize today, that yes, I have went through many challenging season and situations in my life, but they have all produced something remarkable in my life. Everything God does is for the good, and I don’t regret one thing. These last three years taught me so much, every limitation I placed on myself has been broken because of his love for me!!!
4.) Last but not least….. I have a helper. I am not alone.
But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you. (John 14:26 ESV)
One of the greatest gifts God has given To us is the Holy Spirit! He gave us a helper….. Imagine this… Having someone to help you make those big important decisions, in those moments of temptation and someone always there willing and ready to guide you to only the best …. That’s what God has done for us. So we are never ever alone!!! I was so over joyed when I realized I am not alone, no matter what natural circumstance tried to tell me. I am not alone, you have a helper you can call on in any time or season! For absolutely another. It is his job to help you. SO EXCITING!!
I am sharing this with you, in hopes that you will to be able to walk in the same freedom I am now able to walk in. Know that you are worthy of love, and worthy of Gods love. You are a daughter of the most high God and today you can choose to. Surrender to him. It doesn’t matter how far gone you think you are, or what you have been through… GOD CAN AND HE WILL HEAL YOUR BROKEN AREAS AND THOSE WOUNDS!!! You are not out of his reach. So….Hold your head up Princess , you are loved!!!
If you are reading this today I just pray right now that God you would come in and take over there hearts, an penetrate every garden area…. I declare that the love of the father would arrest your heart right where you are…. I declare that every lie of the enemy that would try to prevent his love from flowing in your life is broken!! I declare the lies, the dysfunction , the manipulation, is broken, scales are removed! I say to you today you are free from bondage! I say to your heart, your mind, your body to be free…be made whole in Jesus name! I declare scales are broken!!!! Eyes be opened!!! Hearts be healed!!! In Jesus name!!!! Amen!!
From one daughter to the next ❤️
My life will never be the same. My love, my heart, my BESTFRIEND, my little brother. Derrick D. Butler. He inspires me to be a better person and rise higher! He is the perfect little brother ever. Partners in holiness what! I love this kid!!!
Don’t give up just because things seem hard. You are closer than you think! You’ve invested so much and you never know, just another few more days of believing, another few weeks of doing the right thing, another few months of staying in faith, and you could see that situation turn around. Remember, God is on your side! Keep standing and keep believing because you are closer than you think to fulfilling every desire He’s placed inside of you!
