Task # 5 for the Single Ladies
I was 15 years old when I begged my father to let me start dating. He insisted on telling me that he would allow it only after I was 20…
So one day, the guy I had a crush on came and asked my father for permission.
To my great surprise my dad approved!
A year or so later I was completely passionate about him, when I discovered that he had been cheating on me left and right. He even cheated on me in front of my friends who never said anything to me out of pity.
He broke my heart.
It’s one of the worst feelings I’ve ever felt. You feel worthless, like nothing, garbage!
While angry, I didn’t think twice, I picked up the phone and ended the relationship there and than, but shortly thereafter a mound of thoughts came into my head...
“But I love him so much…,” “What if I give him another chance?” “How will I live without him???” “I lost him…” Waaahhh….
At the same time, however, something much stronger inside of me made me overcome all of those feelings…
Something called self love!
He asked me to get back together with him many times, but I stood by my decision and the more my friends and family said that I wouldn’t resist, the more resolute I became.
We never got back together!
My friend, how can you say you have Jesus and not have self love?!
Women and girls today don’t give themselves the value that they deserve which is why they are frustrated, unloved and unhappy.
Please don’t confuse this with pride, it’s not that at all, but we need to love ourselves!
If he betrayed you, broke up with you, didn’t value you, it’s his loss!
Trust yourself and your potential, don’t view yourself as worthless!!! No way!
Overcome all bad thoughts and doubts brought by the devil and look straight ahead!
I’m not saying it won’t hurt but it will certainly pass and you will later see what you were saved from.
We need to love ourselves like our Lord loves us and value ourselves the way He does!
How can you accept leftovers in a relationship while your Lord has a whole banquet set up for you?
It doesn’t make sense!
I write this message especially for a friend that wrote to me today asking for advice over a boyfriend that broke up with her. ..
So he treats you like trash and you would still like it if he asked you to give it another try?!
I have two words for the ladies that are in this same situation…
“You need to value, love and believe in your own potential and above all believe in your God!
If you believe that God is with you, how can you view yourself like a looser?
That’s not possible!
It’s not enough to say that you love God; you must love yourself as well!
Starting today you will stop saying negative comments about yourself!
From today on, you will never repeat phrases like….
Oh, how I’m dumb!
I can’t do anything right!
I’m never going to get it!
Or any other phrase along these lines.
Remember…. “I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.”
