Because I love me.

“A beautiful woman without good sense is like a gold ring in a pig’s nose.” Proverbs 11:22 (ERV)

Solomon compares a ring in the nose of a pig to a woman that is beautiful but has no sense. No sense of discretion. No sense of modesty. No sense of self-respect or worth. There was a time in my life when all of my modesty went out the window. I just didn’t care anymore. 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 those who don’t care at all for her.

Listen to me. Being fearfully and wonderfully made is not a bra size, a hair style or a fashion trend. It’s an inner beauty that says “I’m NOT going to let anyone make me feel like I’m nothing. I’m NOT going to let anyone disrespect me. I love myself too much. I’m NOT going to give my heart to anyone that 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 God loves you, you become empowered by God to not put up with anyone’s foolishness. See your worth.

Prayer: Thank You God. Thank You that You love me. Help me 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.

But truly this is me give all my love but don’t feel loved by no-one in my household not even my husband and children. Bend over backwards for them but will they do the same for me probably because they know that’s what’s right but wouldn’t want too. I’ve been feeling like this for years like who loves me. Thank you

  7. I was just praying about this last night. Asking God to help me see myself as he sees me. See my worth as he sees it. I’m running from a relationship that is not good for me. I’ve been staying strong in the Lord. I have great support from my pastors and friends. Waking up to this devotional is confirmation that God was holding me last night as I cried out to Him. Thank You so much for this. I know you only post devotionals when God speaks to you, I know as He was doing so He was thinking of me and I’m sure other women out there. God Bless you!

  12. AMEN to those encouraging words. Sometimes, I get so quickly frustrated & irritated with myself; usually for something stupid I did. But, then I redirect & encourage myself, saying out loud,
    “I am fearfully & wonderfully made. Marvelous are Your works; and THAT my soul knows very well. I Will praise You, Dear Lord.”
    I used to pray the following for/about my husband. Now, I pray it for myself, “Lord, please help me to see myself as You see me. Help me to value myself as You value me. Help me to love myself as You love me. Please fill me up with Your amazing love for me so that it overflows within me. Thank You, Dear Father God.”
    Works every time!!🙏🏾🙏🏾😇

  16. Thank you for such a powerful message. This has cause me to take a inward look at myself. God is really speaking to the heart of women. Since my journey with breast cancer I have been encouraging women to love themselves for they are fearfully and wonderfully made a breast really do not define them. Please pray for me as I reach out to women letting them know how loved and special they are.
