I have been blessed by so many wonderful friends in Dallas, and excited for you to read an excerpt from a book by Sarah Johnson, one of my many talented friends, and her mom. This mother-daughter duo has a passion for ministering to women like no other.
Below is an excerpt from Trading Up for a King’s Daughter • A-Z Secrets to Living Regally in Reality by Ginnie Johansen Johnson and Sarah Johnson. Enjoy 1 of 26 secrets to living “regally in reality” with identity, joy, and purpose as a King’s Daughter.
“God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in Him…
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment….
We love Him because He first loved us.” 1 John 4:16, 18,19
Dear King’s Daughter,
Accepting God’s love is the beginning of living regally in reality. “I pray…that you being rooted and grounded in God’s love, may be able to comprehend what is the width, length, depth, and height of His love” (Eph. 3:14-18). God’s perfect love is wide enough to cover your every need, deep enough to heal your every sorrow, and high enough to fulfill your every hope. It is unconditional, limitless, and unchanging. He loves you when you make a mistake. He loves you when others decide they don’t. God IS love. “I have loved you with an everlasting love: therefore with loving-kindness I have drawn you” (Jer. 31:3). When you truly accept God’s perfect love, fear flees. His “perfect love casts out all fear” (1 John 4:18). Fear of God’s love changing based on your good or bad behavior: gone! Fear of rejection from people: a thing of the past! “One day I had a vertical encounter with God’s love that truly ended my horizontal pursuit of looking to others for love,” says Ginnie, “God gave me a vision where I was plucking a daisy saying, ‘He loves me, I love me.’” Go buy a daisy plant and TRADE UP to God’s kingdom “daisy affirmation.” Pluck each petal repeating the words, “He loves me, I love me, He loves me, I love me.” Beloved, be loved!
