Last week, I came across a scripture that took my breath after I read it. I immediately stopped and said "Wow."
I knew this is how I needed to live my life.
"The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down."
I want to keep building myself. I don't want to self-sabotage. I want to keep inspiring myself. I don't want to limit myself. I don't want to tea myself-- my house down.
We are our own worst enemies. We know where the cracks are in our foundations. We know where the drafts pour in. We know how to make the stairs creak. We know how to hurt ourselves.
We are our own best protectors. We know the best spot to sit and read. We know the best time and window to stand by for that perfect selfie lighting. We know the perfect blanket to pillow ratio to make sure that we're as comfortable as possible. We know how to embrace and love ourselves.
We just have to feel worthy of this love that we deserve to give ourselves, because He gives us His love unconditionally.
This verse reminds me that I am worthy to be built. I am worthy of my own love.
Whatever gender you are, build your house--never tear yourself down.
