The Lion-hearted Princess

The Lion-hearted Princess

A heart…in her hair across on the right from her forehead, third strand.

This post just disappeared on my blog, so I am publishing again!😢 I retrieved it through the comments section, thank goodness! Sorry for those whose comments vanished!

She must save herself from the dragon

— from without and the one from within. No knight in shining armor will come to save her. She is in a parched place of no refuge. The castle’s chambers are locked shut. She clangs on the bars of the prison’s clutches all day. Misunderstood. Misjudged.

Their spy glass inspects the outside, but they cannot see within. The place where she is dying. No help. No one to see the real her. They see only the outside that looks whole. They cannot see that she wishes to break free from the plague of her mere existence that has gripped her tightly within its clutches, like an eagle whose claws are clutching its prey. They mock her. She must be crazy they think. They only see what they want to see.

She sits in the silence that echoes what she knows in her heart. She must love herself, she must save herself. No one will. Stop caring what others think of her. They don’t matter.

She catches the guard off guard. She had the keys now. She lies in wait to break free. She must somehow get to the King. He will know what to do. His wisdom will conquer her enemies. 

It is dark, she escapes. She slips through the darkness to journey to the King’s palace. She waits for her chance. And she throws herself at His feet. Asking for mercy. Someone to understand her plight. 

The King raises his septor. She pours out herself like a wine that has been stored in a long-abandoned cellar. He sees. He sees deep within her soul. “Rise my Daughter. Thy faith hath made thee whole.” She rises a champion. Made whole.

  1. Beautiful Renee!! So glad you were able to find your post again, I have had that happen with two of mine and thankfully my mom had them stored in her email so I had her forward them to me but I have yet to repost them again.

  2. Awe, thank you, Debbie, my friend! Your kindness means so much to me! I think we have all been in her shoes through a trial or our sins before we came to Him. Our desperation sets us free! 🙌🏼

    • Thank you, Betty! These glitches are so strange here on WP. 🤔

      I’m with you on the “not tech savvy part!” Technology seems to be growing day by day. The things I once knew from school are so obsolete! I’m so glad your hubby helps out!
