Relationships on Reality TV are real, right?
Another rose ceremony occurred this week as The Bachelor continues with Juan. Pablo. (Two words, one name.) looking for love. As the women start feeling insecure and wondering if the connection that they made on their 1-1 date with Juan. Pablo. a couple of extravagant dates ago has been forgotten. Hello? Who can forget bringing winter to California?! (let’s build a snowman). It was a great reminder of how I started writing this blog to reach out to others and help them find love and value within themselves and not from others, possessions, or money.
As the show again reminded me so well, we are all looking for love and looking to feel that we are valued and worthy. It is often that we look to others to tell us our worth instead of finding that love for ourselves and receiving God’s perfect love in our lives to fill the gaps of our imperfections.
I just wanted to remind you as we gear up for another season of men and women trying to find love through helicopter rides, dancing in the snow while being serenaded by Josh Krajcik, and the process of rose elimination ceremonies that are some truths that we need to remind ourselves daily.
- You are worth more than the amount of money in your bank account.
- Your job title does not dictate your value.
- A relationship status does not mean that you are not worthy to be loved.
- The clothes, accessories, and hair-dos you wear do not determine your worth or beauty.
- The amount of friends on Facebook, Twitter followers, Instagram hearts on your photos does not quantify how popular, cool, or hipster you are.
- You are beautiful, worthy, loved, and valued. Possessions, job titles, Facebook friends, money, and relationship statuses does not determine your worth.
Your rose is that you are worth the love you deserve to give yourself, and no amount of money, no relationship status, and no job title can dictate your value. God loved you so much that he sacrificed His best to know you. Why? Because you are worthy of love. Basically, God made a way to say to you, “Will you accept this rose?”
“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8
