Love Yourself – Don’t Be a Placeholder – S2E5

Relationships are the connections one has with others. And although there are several types of relationships—romantic relationships can be tricky. In other words, those connections are hard enough as it is when both people are on the same page. But if they are not, it makes navigating through the issues of life that much more difficult. 

Do you feel loved, cherished, and respected?

And for that reason, loving yourself is so important. Because, when you truly love yourself, you are more aware of how that relationship affects you. For instance, how does the relationship make you feel? That is all the more crucial when planning a future with someone. 

If you are not receiving what you need and want from the relationship it’s time to examine that. In Ephesians 4:2 New Living Translation it speaks on how we should be with others, “Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love.”

Waiting for God’s BEST – S2-DE5

Lady Vs Weekly Devotional 

Now the LORD God said, “It is not good (beneficial) for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper [one who balances him—counterpart who is] suitable and complementary for him.”  

Genesis 2:18, AMP 

Devotional 

Our time is precious and we want to spend it wisely. I’m sure we can all agree; NO ONE wants to waste time in the wrong relationship.

That’s why God’s original plan, from the beginning, started with giving Adam the wife that was just right for him. So, God created Eve—God’s BEST for Adam. 

God had an original plan for Adam and Eve which would serve a purpose, to be a successful relationship. And, it is the same plan for all that desire to have God’s BEST—today.

Be a Beacon of Love

Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful and endures through every circumstance. 

1 Corinthians 13:4-7 NLT

Devotional 

When one defines love it often gets labeled, “it’s complicated.” However, loving someone takes a conscious decision to make the effort to share something within you that makes a statement to the other person that—you matter.  

Imagine how relationships with others would flourish if only we treated each other as—you matter. Every life has value. But, when we lose sight of love, the lens is blurred on how precious life really is. So, let’s imitate God’s love.

Loving God and Loving Others

Let love and kindness be the motivation behind all that you do.

1 Corinthians 16:14 The Passion Translation

Devotional 

Beloved, do you know that as we go about representing Jesus Christ, our motivation should always be that of LOVE? No matter who we meet or what they believe, we as the church are to show the love of Christ.  

You might say, “Why is that so important?” I’m glad you asked! It is important because Jesus came to the earth and sacrificed everything, all in the name of LOVE. “For this is how much God loved the world—he gave his one and only unique Son as a gift. So now everyone who believes in him will never perish but experience everlasting life.” (John 3:16, TPT)
