Blush: You Are the Apple of My Eye
I often struggle with self-love and acceptance. Since I was a young girl, I have never faced rejection well. I would often run and hide from those that I felt rejected me for whatever reason. I began to seek words of affirmation. Eventually, this need pushed the people that loved me the most out of my life and away from me. My need was too great a burden for them to bear, neither did they enjoy the process. My life began to be a series of services. Only those that needed my help sought me out. And I was eager to help them. But that led to me gaining more than a client. They became “friends” from my perspective. This was not only erroneous thinking but also detrimental to a lot of the business relationships I had. After many a betrayal and broken-heartedness, God pulled me to a place of isolation. In this, “Blush” was birthed. He began to teach me that his love for me was unending. That I could lean and depend on him as much as I desired, he wasn’t going anywhere. It has helped me to see my life and my business life more clearly.
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”
– I Corinthians 13:4-7
