Girl, you are precious. Your heart is precious. It is one of the few gems in this world that defines worth in its truest sense. Your heart matters.
That is why I am telling you now this.
Don’t give your heart away so easily. Like a diamond that has to be sought for, you are to be pursued and wooed relentlessly and lavishly. You have to be sought for equivalent to the treasure that you are.
Not all men that set their eyes on you are worth even an inch of your heart. You heart must have always belonged first to Jesus, the greatest Lover of your soul. Only He can whisper to you the true jeweler that will see and prize you as you are.
Don’t give your heart away too much.
Don’t give your heart away too soon.
You deserve the same love that you are always trying to give away. As much as you have the immeasurable capacity to love and respond within you, you are not obliged to give it away to every man that comes along your path. Your value won’t increase by the number of men who have gotten a piece of your heart but it will increase by the secret and silent keeping of your heart in the palms of your Creator.

You deserve the same love that you are always trying to give away. One day, that man will arrive. When he comes, every drop of love that you will give out as an overflow of Jesus’ love will always be enough yet lavish for him. Every angle, every polished and unpolished side of the gem that you are, will always be beautiful to him. Wait for him.
Because, you deserve the same love that you are always trying to give away.
