When I go to a clothing store, I often head strait to the clearance. Before you judge, I got a Zara dress from Marshalls for NAYC for $12. That was a steal. It would be so easy to buy everything on sale. It may take a while to find the good stuff but it’s less stress to have to pay a full $50 for a dress you’ll probably only wear a couple times.

But, what happens when we get snags in our cheap $12 dresses from Marshalls? It’s just wasted money. Quality over quantity. That can go for many things in the life of an Apostolic Girl. But today, we’re gonna be talking about being sold out on yourself, for yourself, in honor of the King.

If you’re wondering why so many people go strait to the clearance, it’s because it’s cheap! They know it won’t last but it’s there and it’s cheap. That’s the only reason they’re there for it. If you have a bunch of guys “hitting” you up all the time, think about it. Self worth is so important because Jesus paid it all. You were and still are worth the blood of Jesus. Nobody deserves it, but He still paid it all. Maybe you like the attention, or you just want to be nice. But, in the end, you’re wasting your attention on not just these guys, but people who just want an easy friend. Don’t settle for the closest guy you see because he knows it won’t last. He knows why he’s there.

“For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Romans‬ ‭8:38-39‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Be sold out on God! Be sold out and confident in who you are. I’m not saying don’t give any guy a chance. Not every guy is looking for what’s cheap. But you may view yourself as that if you let them view you as that too. Girl, you ain’t cheap. God gave us all the things he did to remind us daily that we deserve to be taken care of by the right person. But, in order to be sold out on a guy, you have to first be sold out on God, and then yourself. Like the scripture says, “nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God…”. If you’re sold out, nothing can get in between you and Him.

I may be only fifteen and have never had a boyfriend, or talked to many guys, but I know that putting myself down for it puts another opportunity down to confine in God. Just because you’re available, doesn’t mean you’re cheap. If you just wait on His will, I promise you He will send you the right person. Jesus knows the desires of your heart. You just gotta be sold out on yourself for now. The rest will fall in line, babe. 😉

    Chelsea definitely has the right idea. More young men and women (even better in childhood) need to be taught and shown that they have great value. They are so valuable that God gave His only Son to die for them. He has a plan and purpose for each one. Best to pursue Him and know the truth that sets us free. God is pure love, this love wants the very best for us. I pray Chelsea continues to share this message of quality over quantity, to never settle, and to never think you are less than a most loved child of God. ♥

    Mija I love your blog! I love that you’re young with such a passion for Jesus and sharing His word through your words. You write such a mature message too! Keep going, keep writing, and thank you for reminding your readers that we should be sold out for God. God Bless you. 🙂
