You deserve better than what you have right now.
Now, that may seem contradictory to things I’ve written in the past regarding contentment, but stick with me for a minute.
You deserve better than what you have right now because you have so much to look forward to in the future – namely, a perfect blissful eternity with Jesus. Which you aren’t going to get right now.
But what you do deserve right now is the glorious, God-glorifying life He has planned for you.
Do you believe that?
You deserve joy
“These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.” – John 15:11
You deserve love
“By this we know love, that He laid down His life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers.” – 1 John 3:16
You deserve a super godly guy
“How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according your word. With my whole heart I seek you; let me not wander from Your commandments!” – Psalm 119:9-10
You are worth all of that, tough girl. The problem is, not enough ladies believe this. They are willing to compromise and settle because they don’t know they are worth more. But they are.
You are worth daily living that feels like best day of summer vacation. A joy that won’t be shaken by anything or anyone. A hope that gets you through the toughest of times.
You are worth love that moves mountains. Friendships and friends that refresh you like lemonade. Love that fills you up so much, you can’t help but love other people because, if not, you’ll just burst!
You are worth a guy who reminds you of Jesus. He’s strong, sensitive, wise, considerate, thoughtful, and godly. He treats you like you are a princess, the daughter of a King. He’ll fight for you, protect you, and life you up.
You. Are. Worth it! Not because of anything that you’ve done, but because you have a Father in heaven who wanted to give it to you so badly, He died for it.
Question: Where do you most struggle with your value? Do you have any Bible verses that help you when you struggle? How does knowing your worth and value change the way you live your everyday life?
