who is on the throne of your life?


“Never make someone a priority when all you are to them is an option.”― Maya Angelou

You can't control how other people treat you.  If you think you need to modify your behavior to make somebody like or respect you, don't bother, because it won't work. 

You're either a priority to someone, or you're not.  If someone regularly takes advantage of you or mistreats you, this is not because you aren't trying hard enough. You don't need to redouble your efforts to be lovable, and it won't make any difference if you do.  

You can't make someone care about you, respect you, or appreciate you.  You can't make anyone love you, or even like you.  

All you can do is be yourself, the way God created you to be, a reflection of His limitless creative impulse. And honestly, you do not need to be adored by millions.

You need only be adored by one, and Dear Heart, you are

God alone promises never to leave nor forsake you. Give Him top priority in your life, and your other relationships will fall into their proper place.  You will find you no longer depend on the approval of other people to feel that you are valuable, though you may be flawed and imperfect. God loves you, because He made you in His image. 

Who is on the throne of your life?  

"For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8:39
