Love Yourself Enough to... Know That You Deserve The Best In Your Relationships

 When you know how priceless you are worth as an individual, it is easy to understand and believe that you deserve to aim for, desire and get the best.

Do you believe that you deserve the best? Do you believe that you are worthy of the best? Do you believe that you can get the best?

In our relationships, it's time to love ourselves enough to realise that not 'just anyone' would do, to understand that for you to agree to consider committing the rest of your life to this individual, he/she must be worth their salt! 

Refuse to accept just anything because 'time is running out' or 'people are doing it now'. You are worth more than that - Love yourself! Don't 'manage' when you clearly know that you are not compatible and you will probably not be happy. Don't 'settle' when you believe in your heart that this is not quite it. You deserve to have IT.

 Love yourself enough to refuse to be with someone who doesn't recognise and act like they know that you are all that and a bag of chips! 
Don't settle for someone who doesn't respect you, who doesn't respect the greatness in you. 
Don't settle for someone who regards you as an option or with whom you have to play second fiddle. 
Don't settle for someone who makes you compete for their time and attention. 
Don't settle for someone who makes you feel less than you are.
Don't settle for someone who discourages your walk with God or will not help your growing in Him.

Love yourself enough to know when to walk away. Love yourself enough to see you the way God sees you - Deserving. Worth It. Precious.

"Since you were precious in my sight, you have been honoured, and I have loved you..." Isaiah 43:4a

When people say to me "Ayo, maybe you're still single because you are tooo choosy" (Honestly, I'm not! lol) I'm like, no, I'm actually easy like Sunday morning haha, but he has to have 'something' about him. I will recognise that 'something' because I already spoke to my Daddy about it. I am not ready to go with just anyone, I'm worth more than that by God's grace.

"Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart" - Psalm 37:4

If our earthly Parents are so particular about the person that we would marry, and given the powers, would give us the very best, the one that would suit us excellently, how much more our Daddy in heaven whose love for us cannot be compared with any other? He's got you and me covered.... Trust Him, He has only the best for you.

You deserve the best in your relationship.. Know this.. Don't settle.. Love YOU


  1. Amen girl...I feel the same way. Personally I'd rather stay single and happy/joyful than settle for less that God's ideal for me.

  2. So true—I agree with you and with Highly Favored!

  3. You know what i always say!Marriage is not a criteria for entering heaven.
    But marrying wrongly can actually make me miss it so I will wait on the lord and not be in a rush.

  4. Preach Ayo! I don't just get it! Why are people quick to say you're being choosy when what you're trying to do is just to set standards? Must one say yes to everyone and everything?
