Ladies Do You Know Your Worth?
Matters of the Heart
I was on face book a few months back when I read a post from Taraji P Henson that read: Know your worth; I thought to myself that is saying a lot without having to say much at all. I got exactly what she was saying, but someone out there may not understand what it means to know your worth so I will elaborate on what I think.
Before I go any further let me say this hub is for those who believe in The Father, The Son, and the Holy Ghost. If you are a non believer in God I can not help you and I do not know anyone who can but for those who do believe in God listen up:
Knowing your worth is about understanding exactly what you deserve out of life, and what has already been promised to you. Women are always talking about how good men are hard to find but they allow themselves to be chosen by everything but a good man. You even have some women who will accept that “their man”, is married and continue to date and go on vacations with him that is just ridiculous. You have no way of knowing what his wife might be going through. I do not care what his excuse is for stepping out on his wife, you should know you deserve better.
I know women who will put their lives on hold to spend their time, gas, and money going to visit boyfriends in jail and prison. Now there is nothing wrong with that if you know in your heart of hearts that he would do the same for you, but the sad story is these women know that if the tables were turned they would not get that same dedication and unconditional love. These woman would be sitting in jail getting pissed off because she knows that he probably with the same chick she caught him with last month.
How do you want to be treated?
Why is it that a woman would have to reach a very low point in her life before she even recognizes her worth?
She can cry herself to sleep many nights wondering why her man act the way he does and telling god that she is not going to listen her mans lies any more but soon as he come back around with lie about where he’s been she is blinded by love and takes forgives him again.
A woman will put up with all kinds of baby mama drama, lies, and other women when it come to the man she loves, she might complaint to her girlfriends over and over again about the awful way he disrespects her; she might even talk to God about him but when asked the question “Why do you stay with a man who treats you bad and does nothing but what he want to do when he wants to do it?” They always say the same thing, “I put up with it because I love him and I have faith in him, he will change.”
Give God your faith and love
If you want him to change you should be treating God the way you treat your so called man. God is the one who does the changing, you want some one who does not give out empty promise you better get to praying. Why is it that these women can be quick to believe some of the dumbest crap that comes from someone who can be weakened? God can not be weakened and he has written his promised down for you a book full of nothing but what he CAN DO AND WILL DO. Your man won’t come see you in jail or prison but you can believe God will show up if you ask him to.
Concluding words: Keep on loving each other as brothers and sisters. Don’t forget to show hospitality to strangers, for some who have done this have entertained angels without realizing it. Remember those in prison, as if you were there yourself. Remember also those being mistreated, as if you felt their pain in your own bodies. Give honor to marriage, and remain faithful to one another in marriage. God will surely judge people who are immoral and those who commit adultery. Don’t love money; be satisfied with what you have. God has said I will never fail you. I will never abandon you.
