“Real queens fix each others crowns” – this saying always warms my heart. Tonight I asked myself WHY – why do I get a “kick” out of these words?
When I listen with my soul and spirit, and not with my ears, then I hear the words authenticity, worthiness, surrender, servant-hood, humbleness, giving, big-hearted and recognition in that sentence.
What an awesome combination! On its own, none of these would be complete or appropriate. But put them together into one woman and you’ve got a warrior in disguise!
“Real queens” (authenticity and worthiness) know their identity in Christ – they don’t pretend to be someone they’re not, and they don’t want to pretend, because they know that they are daughters of the Most High, so why would they want to pretend to be someone they’re not!
“Fix each others” (surrender, servant-hood, humbleness, giving, big-hearted) shows that you are willing to step down from your throne, that you are willing to do something for someone else, even if it’s at the expense of your own “image”.
And last, but not least, “Crowns”. This is the one that really stood out for me – to me, this means “recognition”. You can’t fix someones crown if you don’t recognise that they have one, and in recognising that they have a crown, you recognise their worthiness because of the Lamb that was slain!
Lets remember this – to fix each others crowns – next time we want to “find fault” with someone. Instead of gossiping about someone, rather help them fix their crown, and while doing so, keep in mind the key here is humbleness – remember their “queen” status!
