The Journey of Preparation to Singleness, Marriage & Intimacy With God
Day 51: THE BEAUTY OF SELFISHNESS
Today’s Lesson: Be More Selfish, It’s healthy for you!
During my morning worship, God reminded me to stay selfish. I remember when He first instructed me to selfishness, I had a hard time understanding. When we are taught as believers to give and serve.
But once he gave me revelation on the matter, I soon embraced it and try to live by it. However, like today, I still need to be reminded.
Being SELFISH has a positive and life changing meaning. To be selfish in God’s view is for you to be greatly in-to-your-self. For you to learn the gift of celebrating one of the most precious gifts in the world…YOU!
You must know your value and your worth. Because knowing your value is the foundation for succeeding in the journey of singleness, marriage and intimacy with God. If you don't know your value, you don't know you. So today focus on you. On knowing yourself and you taking care of you first.
Have you been on an airplane before? Well if you have, you most definitely heard the flight attendant instructed the passengers to place the oxygen mask on themselves first prior to anyone accompanying them, in case of an emergency and the oxygen pressure dropping. Do you know why this protocol is so vital for the individual?
Well if you have no oxygen you will pass out and not be able to help the person you are trying to assist. The same is true for you. When you serve others, pour out to others, put others above your needs from a depleted place you can pass out and not be able to help anyone. Or if you are helping others they are getting the false you, not the authentic you.
So spend time today spoiling yourself, pampering yourself, making a fuss over yourself and enjoy every minute of it!
Until tomorrow, focus on you boo!
