You can’t force love.

“Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings.” Psalms 17:8, NIV.

When it comes to love, you want the kind that comes naturally, not love that is forced. Maybe there’s someone in your life that you love a great deal, but they don’t feel the same way you do and it makes you want to change in order to keep them interested.

The thoughts in your mind may say, “I can make them love me. I can change and become whatever they want me to be. I can change careers, change my hair, get plastic surgery, have their child, leave everything I know and change the way I behave. They will love me; I just have to…” You shouldn’t have to change yourself to get love. If God loves you just how you are, anyone He sends your way will also love you just how you are.

At the heart of real love is acceptance. Anything you have to change to get, you will have to constantly change in order to keep. Love is most beautiful when it is unforced and not manipulated. Let love happen by God’s divine orchestration. Whatever He sends your way He will give you the grace and wisdom to handle. You may not be the apple of someone’s eye just yet, but you are surely the apple of God’s eye. You may not have a David Jonathan kind of friendship just yet, but you have one with God. He loves you in every state and in every season. He took off His priestly garments and wrapped you in robes of righteousness. You will never be able to reach the bottom of God’s love for you!

Until someone can love you even remotely close to that kind of love, honey they don’t deserve you.

Prayer: Father God, thank You for speaking to my heart. I know You love me. Help me know it in a deeper way. Deal with the deeper fears in me and shine your light on every false view I have of myself. I deserve real love and I trust You. In Jesus Name, Amen.

THANK YOU LORD😍!! That just warms my heart💓😊 I feel, when people come into your life, they are a “compliment” to who & what you already are & have..the ONLY changes that should be made are to enhance/better & grow the relationship TOGETHER & make a collective difference around yourselves..ie..Your Church, The Community You Live In/Grew Up In, Volunteering With Youth and or Seniors, Mentoring etc.. Once again..I FEEL (just my opinion) people that come into your life..are like an accessory..they “compliment” who & what you ALREADY are & have. Together, may it be a..”relationship relationship” or a “friendship”..but TOGETHER..Y’all Should/Could Be A #POWERTEAM, You all should be sooo equally yoked, LOVE THE LORD..WITH ALL YOUR HEART❤, LOVE one another.. GENUINELY💝, COMMUNICATE☎..COMMUNICATE📱..COMMUNICATE⌨🖱!!!, HAVE lots of things in common, NO RED FLAGS🚫, EXPLORE new things TOGETHER, ENJOY each others company & life, RESPECT one another, TRUST one another, NEVER lie to the other, LAUGH TOGETHER😄just..
    LIVE..LAUGH & LOVE…….
    🎵I LOVE YOU JUST THE WAY YOU ARE🎶
