The Story of Us

Once upon a time, in a faraway land there lived a princess. She was doomed to live a life of dispair and sadness until she met the one and only King. Meeting Him changed her life, and she vowed to serve Him and follow Him forever. She began to do just that. She studied the letters that the King wrote. She went to meetings and schools to learn more about the King. She talked to Him daily, and she was always amazed by His love, kindness, mercy and grace. He never let her down. He walked with her through the tough times. He laughed with her through the good times. He was always by her side.

At the same time, in another distant land, there lived a prince. He too, was doomed to a life of sadness and dispair. He too, met the one and only King. The meeting changed his life, and he vowed to serve Him and follow Him forever. He took steps to do just that. He studied the King's letters. He went to meetings and schools to learn more about the King. He talked to the King daily, and was always amazed by His love, kindness, mercy and grace. The King walked by his side, and never let the prince down.

After years of training and service, the King felt that the prince and the princess should meet. So He arranged for them to both attend the same school of higher learning. The prince and princess met and fell in love, just as the King had planned. They married and began to serve the King together. Sometimes it was hard for them. Sometimes they had to do without things that they wanted. Sometimes others misunderstood them and their motives, and said or did hurtful things to the prince and the princess. But with the King's help, the prince and princess continued to serve Him. Their greatest joy came when they had the chance to introduce others to the King, and see their lives changed as well.

The King blessed the prince and princess with children of their own. First a beautiful daughter. Then a precious son, and finally another beautiful daughter. The prince and princess work hard to teach and train their children for the service of the King. The two oldest children have met the King, and as their mother and father before them, they have been changed for the better by the meeting. They too have pledged their lives to His service. The whole family is eager for the youngest daughter to meet the King as well.

They work together as a family to spread the news of how wonderful the King is, and how meeting Him can change lives forever. They pray that everything they do and say will bring honor and glory to their King, and they hope that when they see their King again, that He will wrap them in His arms of love and say, "Well done!"

The prince and the princess know that they are far from perfect. They have made, and will continue to make many mistakes along the way. That is why they try to live as close to their King as possible. They try to read His letters daily, and follow the instructions that the King gives in those letters. They talk to the King daily, and try to be still and listen to what He says in return. They listen to those around them who also know the King, and have learned lessons by following Him. And they try to live the best lives for their King that they can. Still through it all, they know that when they do make mistakes, like they have in the past, and will in the future, that the King is gracious and forgiving. They know that He will be there to help them, lead them, and get them back on the right path.

They wonder if you know their King, or if you have ever read any of His letters to you. They want you to know that their King loves you very much and wants you to meet Him, like the prince and princess did.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on him should not perish, but have eternal life.

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 10:13 for, Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Just a fun way of introducing us...who we are...and maybe if you don't know the King like we do, you will be interested in meeting Him. Thanks for dropping by!

I am also a Princess in a far away land, who knows the King that you speak of. I desire to please him daily. However, I did not meet my Prince in a place of higher learning. I just loved the way you illustrated your story.

So glad I know the King too.
You are always so encouraging.
