Jesus’ Queen

“Mommy, you Jesus’ queen!” my little boy told me animatedly at breakfast. Then he turned to my maid and said, “Twila, you Jordan’s queen!” That tickled my funny bone. You know it really is in perspective. How do we look at life? There aren’t many times that I feel like a queen much less Jesus’ queen. Come to think of it though, what do I expect Jesus’ queen to be like? In my mind, I think of Jesus’ queen being one who has her ducks quacking. Her house is neat. Her children are neat. She is neat. Not only is she neat, I think of her as being constantly loving, constantly giving, and constantly patient. She is busy performing.  If that doesn’t sound like someone close to perfect, someone who could possess the title Mrs. God… On the other hand, maybe Jesus’ queen is one who is filling her place as woman, wife, sister, daughter, friend, and/or mom. Maybe Jesus’ queen is one who has a messy house because she is busy raising children and making memories. Maybe His queen is one who takes time for the hurting and ends up driving a dirty car. Maybe His queen smells of baby barf and breast milk because she has an infant.

What does a Jesus’ queen look like? I think Proverbs 31:10-31 says it well:

10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.

12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.

13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.

14 She is like the merchants’ ships; she bringeth her food from afar.

15 She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.

16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.

17 She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.

18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.

19 She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.

20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.

21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.

22 She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.

23 Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.

24 She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.

25 Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.

26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.

27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.

28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.

29 Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.

30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.

31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

Perspective has so much to do with how one does life! Are you Jesus’ queen? What do you think of when you think of yourself being His queen? I’d love to hear from you my readers!
