Many times we say we love ourselves, but do we really mean it? We try to hide the pain, rejection, hurt, bitterness, and unforgiving spirits from ourselves. We tell ourselves that we have already been healed from those spirits. How easily we fool ourselves only to realize these emotions are still within us. Nevertheless, we start dating to cover up these emotions and begin to settle for less than God’s best. It seems like when you are depressed, out of the blue, men start trying to talk to you and asking you out on dates. We tend to go with it and start dating men that treat us like dirt. We say we love ourselves, but our actions do not show it.
We as women allow men to put us down, degrade us, talk negatively about us, and cheat on us; all the while we say that we love ourselves. That is not love. That is hurt on top of hurt, depression on top of depression, and bitterness on top of bitterness. You will only attract what is inside of you. So, if you are dealing with jealousy, lust, hurt, bitterness, rejections then you will only attract those types of guys.
Let me reinforce what God says about love. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 states, “Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.” That kind of love will last forever!
Ladies, we must realize who we are in Christ and stop settling for less than God’s best for us. Ladies, you are unique, beautiful, lovely, awesome, amazing, wonderful, creative, secure, powerful women in the Lord. You are God’s daughter and you deserve to be treated like a queen. It does not matter if you are overweight, underweight, tall, short, or the styles of your hair. God loves you just the way you are and He will allow a man to find you and love you just the way you are. I know some of you ladies might think you need to enhance your beauty and you can do that. You can always workout, eat healthy, start wearing makeup, and get your hair done regularly. Remember men are visual.
