Choose a good reputation over great riches; being held in high esteem is better than silver or gold. Proverbs 22:1
We can change our minds, and even train our minds daily for long term change- but it is God who can change what we believe.
When u know yourself and your potential, you cant help but to love yourself, and when you love yourself you know you are worth much more than silver and gold. If you love yourself you honor yourself. If you love yourself, your life shows it.
I don’t see people loving themselves much. I say this because they poison their bodies with drugs, liquor, smoke, garbage on TV and senseless musical lyrics, which all influence their thoughts. I also observe that people do not finish what they start, and hold on to negative relationships, or rush into any relationship, to avoid feeling alone. Additionally, most people neglect themselves by omission, they do not eat right, or work out, they do not like what they see in the mirror, excessively buy expensive clothes and applying ridiculous amounts of make up- maybe to feel better about themselves or to attract attention to feel validated. All the while, they do nothing for their souls; they do not consider that they are gifted, do not consider the future except for living the “American dream” which is go to school, buy a house, get married and die. There is no drive to live fulfilling purpose-filled lives. It makes me wonder, if anybody loves themselves or their lives to make something worth of their time here on earth.
How would you like to be remembered?
What legacy would you want to leave behind?
Would you like to be remembered at all?
Lord, give people who have no desire to live a reason to wake in the mornings. I pray for those who are confused about purpose and callings, and even those who want to do everything at once. I pray for wisdom and discernment for each person around the world, who is waiting to know why they were created. May you bring peace to their hearts as you reveal yourself to them. Thank You Lord for my call and purpose. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
