Because I love me.

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

In the Scripture above, Solomon compares a pig’s nose ring to a woman that is beautiful but has no sense. She has no sense of discretion and no sense of self-respect or worth. 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.

Listen to me. 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 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.

  1. This is a right on time word!!!! Brought me to tears this a.m….God has been reminding of this through people(unexpected people that I don’t know coming up to me telling that God want me to see myself the way he see me)….I really doubt myself sometimes and sometimes feel like I’m just not good enough. Keep me in prayer! But I will continue to fight and stand on God word!

    1. Prayer for you dear sister Lawanda. You are valuable and truly loved. You are a Daughter of the Most High King!!! Love and blessings 💜

    2. My dear Sis. Lawanda,
      God made us all individually unique. Even twins are not identically alike. Carry that spiritual mirror with you every day, and know your worth my Queen. Always stay focus on God, and not the situations. Stay ENCOURAGED, Stay PRAYERFUL, Stay TRUE. Be Bless Always Sis.

  2. Wow! Thank you so much for this devotional. I was in an emotionally abusive relationship for 26 years and I did lose me. I could look in the mirror and see nothing on the other end. I am now starting over and it is very hard. Encouraging words like this help.
    Thank you!

    1. Wow Christina B. Just hearing your testimony and to know that we are experiencing the exact same thing encourages me to keep pressing on.I was in an emotionally abusive relationship for 29 years and I’m learning to live again ,indeed it’s hard.Everything inside of me felt like it crumbled .Now days I’m slowly picking up the pieces.I feel like only God understands the matters of my heart.My children seem angry at me because I chose to move on because i felt like I was literally running for my life.The relationship was to toxic and I had to leave,being that’s my children’s Father they seem to side with him even though He caused a lot of the pain and they seem angry at me,which hurts a lot,but only God knows the matters of my heart and He alone will help me get through this.This devotional reminds me to always know my worth.I needed to hear this thanks and God bless!!!!

      1. Peace & Blessings Sister B. Positive💖!!!
        Thank God for you having the strength & courage to leave. I know it had to be hard being that children where involved & they don’t always understand “adult situations” but…
        🎤Farther along “they’ll” know all about it..
        Farther along “they’ll” understand why..
        Cheer up my “Sister” live in the sunshine..
        “They’ll” understand it all by and by🎵
        With Prayer, your children will eventually come around & realize that you did what needed to be done not just for you but for them as well.
        Continue looking ahead My gets greater later!
        Be Blessed & Stay Encouraged!!
        Love Always💕

    2. Peace & Blessings Sister Christine💖!!!
      The beauty of your testimony is that you are no longer in that relationship & you’re finding YOURSELF!!
      I’m sure it can be hard at times, but we serve a God who is a “Heart Fixer” & a
      “Mind Regulator”..keep your eyes stayed on Him & your hands in His Hands & He’ll give you “Perfect Peace”
      Be Blessed My Sister
      Love Always💕

  5. I can relate to not putting up with anyone’s foolishness my spirit was touched by those words and that’s exactly what I’ve been doing for the past 3 years. Doing the right thing doesn’t mean being someone’s fool it simply identifies with making the right choices at the right time.

I too am a survivor of domestic violence, and 25 years after the fact, the TRUTH remains GOD WILL give you beauty for the ashes of your past! HE WILL restore the years that the canker worm and the catepillar have eaten…it won’t happen over night but as you seek HIM, keep your eyes on HIM, trust HIM even when you don’t understand, rest in HIS LOVE, from glory to glory FATHER GOD, renews you inside out by the Power of the HOLY SPIRIT until your past is only a distant memory. I love you SISTERS, FATHER GOD LOVES you infinitely More!
