“Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom." Luke 12:32

Dear Jesus, I’m often tempted to worry that the world is passing me by as everyone else seems to build better and bigger kingdoms for themselves than I have managed to build for myself.  Ah, but all of them are a house of cards, ready to be blown away when you decide it's time to show us who’s God.  You and the Father have freely given a kingdom to me where blessings, grace, and mercy dwell.  It will last when all of our man-made kingdoms are destroyed.  I love this kingdom.  It never passes me by.  It always gives me a lift in the royal parade of the redeemed.  You have made me royalty.  Help me to live as a royal, confident member of your palace today.  AMEN

When we know we are royalty and the way back to the palace we don’t need anyone else to recognize us.
