My thoughts on Cinderella


The dance school where my girls take ballet had their spring performance last weekend. It was a beautiful ballet interpretation of Cinderella. As I watched the performance (and loved seeing my beautiful fireflies), I thought about how the story of Cinderella mirrors my spiritual life.

You see, while I am not a poor servant girl, I am a poor sinner girl. I fall so very short of perfection. Cinderella was transformed by a fairy godmother. I am so much more blessed because I have been transformed by the precious blood of Jesus Christ. Now, I am a princess, a daughter of the King. Prince Charming searched for Cinderella after she left her slipper at the ball. Jesus sought me and bought me with His redeeming blood. While I still fall short of perfection (more often than I care to), my sins have been paid for and I know that one day I will get to live "happily ever after" in Heaven.
