The name La Ritta means ‘The Pearl’. You may notice that this is not just any old pearl but ‘The’ Pearl. It brings to mind the scripture about the pearl of great price. The Parable of the Pearl of Great Price – “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking beautiful pearls, who, when he had found one pearl, went and sold all that he had and bought it”. And too, when God looked at us, His finest creation, He saw The Pearl of great price and decided then and there that we were worth His greatest possession His one and only begotten Son, Jesus Christ . And we were bought. La Ritta has all this to keep in mind. While she really is of great value to God and to those of us to whom He has sent she also has had an extremely valuable price paid for her. But she is worth it.
In what way or ways is La Ritta worth the price paid for her? Her beauty, wit, talent or what? It could be any of these or all of them. It matters not to God. When he views her all He sees is perfection. All she needs to do is get into her prayer closet and seek His dear Face and He will guide her on the perfect path on which He would have her travel. He could and might lead her into a lot of different areas and types of things she never dreamed she would go. Her concept of her life is limited. While God on the other hand has no limitations.
God is waiting on La Ritta. On one hand there is no way she can disappoint Him while at the same time she can not aim or aspire too high. His Holy Spirit is there at the ready to help her when she feels too tired, frightened at the future or just plain flustered. He is there too when she feels fearless and strong enough to try her wings again and again and get again. He never gets too tired to try again. La Ritta has so much potential and already, without even knowing it, is a valuable asset to the people in her life.
Her worth is far above rubies. Prov. 31:10
