Because I love me.

“A beautiful woman who rejects good sense is like a gold ring in a pig’s snout” Proverbs 11:22, Christian Standard Bible.

In the Scripture above, King Solomon compares a pig’s nose ring to a woman that is beautiful but has no sense. How can a beautiful woman have no sense? Either she doesn’t know who she is or she’s lost sight of it. She looks in the mirror and only sees a shell of a person. She doesn’t know her value. She’s more abusive to herself inwardly than anyone could ever be to her outwardly. She gives all of her love, time and energy to that which doesn’t care for her at all.

My sister, being fearfully and wonderfully made is more than physical beauty; it is an inner beauty that says “I’m not going to let anyone make me feel like I’m worthless. I’m not going to let anyone disrespect me. I’m not going to give my heart to anyone who doesn’t value it. I’m not giving my time and attention to those who could care less. I’m saving my words for those who want to listen, because I love me. That’s right! I…love…me!”

Good sense starts the moment you begin to see yourself the way God sees you. The moment you begin to love yourself the way the Father loves you, you become empowered by Him to not put up with anyone’s foolishness. My sister, you will discover your worth, and you will live!

Prayer: Thank you, Father, for the many ways you demonstrate your love for me. Open my eyes to see myself the way you see me. Help me love myself the way you love me. I can’t give any love away until I first receive it for myself. I receive your love. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

  6. Another on time devotional!! This really hit home because I have shared with an individual at church that I don’t like his disobedience and non-sense. There are so many people in the world that wants you to put up with foolishness and don’t want you to see yourself as valuable and called by God. Thank You, Father, for showing my fruitfulness by the unwillingness of other. I will continue on in Your work.
    Thank you Sister Kesha for pointing this out to the sisters that need it to be encouraged.
    God bless❤

  7. Our Father, thank You, for reminding us that we are more than our physical beauty. That we are fearfully and wonderfully made because we are made in Your image and likeness! To be beautiful inside that will show up on the outside. We don’t have to put up with people foolishness that doesn’t value us as Your daughter or women.

    Thank you Sister Kesha for addressing this issue. I am blessed by your obedience when the Holy Spirit speaks to you to share. It is what we deal with and don’t know how to let individuals know that we’re not here to put up with nonsense, disrespect, and not being valued. Another on time devotional. God bless 💐💞

  9. Confirmation once again! Your changing lives! In the trenches, be they spiritual, emotional, mental or physical, don’t underestimate the power of your influence! Stay true to yourself and God my sister and keep the encouragement coming. As Galatians 6:9 says, do not grow weary in doing good for you shall receive a reward. And as 1 Corinthians 15:58 says, be steadfast unmovable and always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain. Your devotionals are impacting my life and purpose in mighty ways. Stay the course my sista, stay the course! More anointing, more favor and more blessings to you! Love you 😍 🥰🤗🙏🏽

  11. I just had this s prayer , lord please give me myself back I do not know who I am anymore 😢 after the sudden death of my husband 6 mos ago i can’t. Seem to find me !! I know the word I love the lord with all my heart but I keep slipping away because some part of me is missing ! I am not and do not feel complete 😢 I believe and have faith in God but can not get my self back together again ! I just wait on the lord when my way I do not know😢😇

  12. Many ppl with low self esteem will need therapy to change. Often trauma such as cptsd causes low self worth. Same as HIV needing retrovirals, mental or personality problems need treatment. My 2¢. I guess prayer can help God send us the medical help we need etc

  13. Thank you Father for answering prayer to have her post about beauty. Thank you for reminding me of Your definition of a woman’s beauty. I intend to keep coming back to You to align myself with how You see me and not live by worldly standards of beauty.

  14. Amen
    2 words spoke out to me yesterday

    These two words were on my top priority and
    When I heard God say
    In my time and season of growth
    I am being established to walk in
    Gods confidence
    To not be insecure about who I am in HIM
    This meant so much to me to know
    My redefining moments
    Are with the Lord
    HE gets all the glory
    For what He is doing in my life
    Thank you
    Amen and Amen
