The Crown of Creation

Last night as I was lying in bed reading, before I drifted off to sleep........I found myself swimming in the comfort and knowledge that I am indeed a 'Purposed Princess' in His eyes.

Have you ever thought about the creation of woman, and why we were made in the fashion and order that we were by our loving Creator-God? It's okay if you haven't because I've never really put that much thought into why woman is the way she is and why she was created after animals and man too. I mean there has to be some order that the Lord had purposed in fashioning us and presenting us to the world and to man (Adam) when He did right?

I hadn't come to the realization yet of why we were created after...after the earth, sky, waters, animals and man before until I read a passage out of the book I am currently reading, called Captivating (by: John & Stasi Eldredge.) Last night as I was curled up under my quilt, squinting through my glasses, that set semi-perfectly straight upon my nose,  to see the words laid before me on the new-book-smell filled pages I began to understand why we as women were the need to be the created after part.

Here's what I read last night that sparked the fires of my mind on the 'why after' question:

"Nike of Samothrace"

She is the crescendo, the final, astonishing work of God. Woman. In one last flourish creation comes to a finish with Eve. She is the Master's finishing touch. How we wish this were an illustrated book, and we could show you now some painting or sculpture that captures this, like the stunning Greek sculpture of the goddess Nike of Samothrace, the winged beauty, just alighting on the prow of a great ship, her beautiful form revealed through the thin veils that sweep around her. Eve is...breathtaking.  Given the way creation unfolds, how it builds to ever higher and higher works of art, can there be any doubt that Eve is the crown of creation? As Paul later writes, man "is the image and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of man" (1 Cor. 11:7). Not an afterthought. Not a nice addition like an ornament on a tree. She is God's final touch, his piece de resistance. She fills a place in the world nothing and no one else can fill. Step to a window, ladies, if you can. Better still, find some place with a view. Look out across the earth and say to yourselves, "The whole, vast world was incomplete without me. Creation reached its finishing touch in me." 
~from Captivating pg. 26 by: John & Stasi Eldredge~

Now tell me that this passage from Captivating did not give you chills! Sisters, we were purposed from the beginning to be the finishing touch in this world. You know what this means don't you? It means that the world could not spin as it does so now...without out us it would have been a fretted collision waiting to happen upon itself. God needed man. Man needed something too.... God realized this and He made Woman, to be a Help-Meet, and a completer of man, one whom brings him glory. 

We are the glory of man, and the daughter's of a brilliant masterful loving Creator! He longs to know you deeply....that is why your reflection as a woman is seen as being deep, emotive and longing after love...because after all God is that image which you portray and long for daily. God is deep, emotive, loving...that is why we long for such things and attributes in our because truly deep down inside we know that we long for Him.

I cannot wait to finish reading Captivating......and to get around to telling you all of the other many things I will surely love about and learn from this lovely little hardback book. 

Perhaps I will go further into the different aspects of Biblical Femininity in future aspect is 'Glory of Man' which I have only just touched on minutely in this post. Would any of you be interested in learning more about the aspects of Biblical Femininity alongside me? Don't worry I will still finish writing the 'Recession' posts I had planned on doing...and at some point or another I plan on discussing different worldviews and diving into Apologetics. I am taking my sweet time with researching, thinking on, and reading all about different worldviews and Apologetics, so please forgive my tardyness on posting about it all.....patience is still needed please! I am in full blown wild tangent researcher mode I assure you. 

Much love to all of you lovely Purposed Princesses,
P.S. - I will be going on another 'adventure' tomorrow. I cannot wait to take lots of pictures of my 'adventure' and then blog about it all later on this weekend so that I may share my 'adventure' with each and every one of you lovely...and handsome bloggers! Oh...and I just joined BlogFrog so if any of you are on there FIND ME! ;)


  1. What a beautiful thought! Thank you so much for sharing that, Sarah. :) Oh, and I am going to go find you on BlogFrog! ;)

  2. Okay, I am now definitely convinced that I need the read this book.
    Thank you so much for sharing that passages from it and what you saw in them, while reading the book itself can be wonderful it is also good to see others thoughts on what they got from it, each person see's something different, and we can all learn a lot from each other's unique perspectives.
    This thought of being a "princess", as any daughter of the King is, is one that very much challenges and encourages me in my walk and lifestyle. Just a few years ago it changed and turned me around completely when I realized it. I was very much a tomboy, hated that I was girl and did everything I could to prove that I was just as good as the guys. When I started learning about the true meaning of womanhood and her creation it was life-changing. Since then I have sought to present myself in a way that brings my Father, the King of kings glory, and well, it means being a princess, and it has brought such joy to me. I no longer feel that I have to prove myself in any way.
    And have had some fun experiences from it.=)One in particular being a day when I was out shopping, my hair was down,even curly it was past my waist at the time, and I was wearing a floor length skirt. I noticed a little girl watching me for the longest time and as I walked past she said, "Mommy, look! There's goes a princess!" =)
    Wow, this comment got long, sorry to ramble on you there... thanks so much for this lovely post, I look forward to more things you've learned form this book.
    Love from a fellow Princess, Laurel

  3. ah I'm glad you're enjoying the book! and yes I would most definitely want to hear about your take on biblical's always a favorite topic of mine ;)

    God bless you on your adventure!
