The Caged Princess is a fairy tale meant to give an illustration for the basic teachings of Christian salvation. A princess (a.k.a fallen man) needs to be rescued from an evil dragon; but, rather like most fairy tales, the princess isn’t just swept off her feet to safety. Instead she is given the power, tools, and ability to overcome and defeat her enemy by the sacrifice of her prince. Basically, this is the message of the cross and resurrection of Christ. God doesn’t just fight for us He strengthens our arms for battle. The princess transforms from a beaten, worn, hopeless, and helpless victim to a mighty overcomer. Sometimes we feel helpless against our own personal demons and we need a reminder that it is God who enables us to do more than we could ever hope or imagine.
About the Author:
So, here’s a little about myself. I love my God, my family, and my home. I was taught about Jesus growing up and met Him at the age of ten. Since then I’ve had moments of strengths, weakness, and failure; but He has always been faithful and never disappointed me. I’ve been blessed with a husband and children; each of which is a game changer. Seriously, I always considered myself a child/parenting expert; until I had kids. I just want to apologize to every parent I have ever judged; you now have my empathy. Still, the love and acceptance I get from my children is beyond expected. Even in moments of ups and downs they are gifts. Growing up, my home was wherever the military sent us. I went to four different High Schools in four different states. I’ve also lived in Iceland and Okinawa. Still, South Carolina was our home away from home. It is my beloved Palmetto State. Well, there it is in a paragraph. Hope y’all enjoyed the story.$13.18
