Learning to accept a compliment is important!
For many people, it is a hard and awkward thing to receive a compliment. whenever someone says something nice about me I have a hard time just accepting what you say. I wonder if they have ulterior motives or if they were just trying to be nice.I usually change the subject really quick to try to move on. but the truth is we have to learn to take in the love. if someone was saying bad things about me I would probably soak it all up like a sponge so why is it so hard to soak in the good stuff too?
Above all, clothe yourselves with love Colossians 3:14
I have learned in my life that there’s no greater compliment than the one that God has given me. Jesus stood on that cross and gave his life so that I could live mine. God gave his own son to pay for my sins and for the longest time I couldn’t accept that compliment Just like I couldn’t just accept any other compliment that was given to me.
whenever you feel unloved unimportant or insecure remember to whom you belong.
We have to be more susceptive to the love and the good parts of life. We tend to become too invested in all the negativity in life and we forget to stop and smell the roses. We have to learn to appreciate all the good stuff in our lives because that good is all the work of God. He is constantly working in our lives trying to help us succeed and live a happy life but we are so preoccupied with all the negativity that we fail to see the paved road he has created for us to walk in and we continue to walk in the path of hardship.
Giving thanks is a sacrifice that truly honors me. If you keep to my path, I will reveal to you the salvation of God. Psalm 50:23
