The Journey of Preparation into Singleness, Marriage & Intimacy With God
Day 230: TAKE YOURSELF OFF THE BARGAIN OR FREE RACK AND KNOW YOUR WORTH
I was asked the question “Are you a Chanel or a Prada? I was confused because they are both luxury high end priced brands. So I said, “What’s the difference?”
"The difference is Prada although it is a luxury brand, goes on sale and offers discounts. While Chanel, since the birth of it’s conception, has never gone on sale or lowered it’s value ever. If you want an authentic Chanel item your going to pay the authentic Chanel price. So decide do you want to be on sale or be full value."
My answer, "I'm a Chanel"
Today’s Lesson: Know your worth.
On this journey of preparation into singleness, marriage and intimacy with God you will be faced with crossroads. These crossroads will represent moments in your life when you have to make hard decisions to choose you over others. To say no even when you're scared of the outcome. And to set boundaries especially when you're unsure of their benefits.
To paint a picture of what I’m saying. If you are in a relationship or desiring to be in a relationship don't neglect your personal values to keep or attract that person in your life.
If you want to be pursued, then don't undervalue yourself and do what others may be doing. By stocking your crush and driving in their neighborhood or checking their social media page multiple times per day liking and commenting on every thing they post, just because some YouTube influencer said so. If you want to have a deeper relationship with God, then spend time praying, fasting and meditating on the word of God, even if your friends leave you because they feel "it don't take all that". Well for you it does so value what you want.
Reflect and sees all the times you devalued yourself, your opinion, your decisions, your body, your life and then decided today that you will no longer give yourself away free, cheap or on the bargain bin.
You are of high value,high worth, high price. if you don't believe me believe God, for he paid for you with the blood of His Son. So next time you think about giving yourself away throwing your values out the door, think about Calvary.
So until tomorrow choose to be a Chanel #yourworthit
With Beautiful Love
