So I’m currently in Wisconsin! I don’t know how many of you are newer viewers, but I’m here for a funeral for the passing of my grandpa back in January.
I ask that you guys pray for comfort for my family so that we are able to celebrate the life he lived. And know that my grandpa is up in Heaven, having a great time! Also, avoiding COVID! (Lucky duck)
But as promised, we are going to be talking about the importance of readying yourself before you get into a relationship!
This is so important, I didn’t really realize this until I was already in the relationship.
The reason why this is important is because if you’re not happy with yourself, you’re going to rely on your boyfriend or girlfriend to give you this happiness or the confidence that you are lacking. And honestly, it might be temporary.
The one thing I thought about was if I’m not able to love myself how am I supposed to be able to love anybody else? If I can’t even look in the mirror and think about me being loved and loving myself, how am I supposed to love someone else? So that’s the first step – just being able to love yourself and accept yourself for who you are. (Next week we’ll talk about another importance of writing yourself a relationship. )But this week’s lesson is for you to be able to love yourself for who you are and who God made you.
“See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called CHILDREN OF GOD; and such we are. For this reason, the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.”
-1 John 3:1 NASB
This is where you need to start. You need to accept yourself for who you are and realize that you are a child of God.
The way I remind myself of this daily is on my mirror in my room. I have Bible verses written all over it. So, when I look in the mirror, instead of seeing an imperfection I see a verse.
They tell me I’m more important that what ever imperfection that tries to trip me up that day.
And that God has your back and everything planned out for you!
Please also, be praying for the kids on Operation Barnabas this year! They started yesterday, but pray that they stay safe!
Check back next week!
Thanks for Poppin in,
