“We love because he first loved us.”1 John 4:19 NIV
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.”1 Corinthians 13:4-8 NIV
How can you expect someone else to love you, if YOU don’t love yourself?
You need to be your biggest fan. Make an intentional effort to love yourself. Make it verbal. The next time you’re in the bathroom… look in the mirror and tell yourself that you love yourself. Keep repeating it. It may be one of the most powerful experiences in your journey.
