Walking into a shop, I could just barely hear this song coming out of the sound system. Simply the Best, by Tina Turner was playing and those three words were the loudest part of the song. I admire Tina for everything she went through. Such a beautiful and talented lady that knew her worth, even though the tabloids revealed her man did not.
Your self worth is invaluable. You need to know it and own it. Don’t allow anyone to tarnish what you believe about yourself. I have allowed people in the past to steal my joy. If I go to bed sad and wake up sad, that should tell me this could be a problem.
We should have standards. Good morals. People will try and get you to meet theirs which sometime means lowering yours. I have found if those people are going to be in my life, they need to come up and meet mine. Otherwise, there is no room in my life.
That may seem harsh, but it’s self care and preservation. Past relationships have beat me up and down to where I had to search diligently to find myself again. God has always brought me through to the other side shinier than before. I am a better woman today because of what I’ve been through, but I’m slowing down on the lessons learned.
Knowing I am worthy of every good thing God has in store is enough. The people He places in my life today may not be the easiest people in the world, but they are worth it. God will use people to challenge you for what He wants changed. Need more patience? He will send someone that requires patience. Need to learn how to wait? Welcome to waiting. Put those two together and you have a new skill called patiently waiting.
Those people want the same thing for you that God does. Simply the best.
