Don’t Settle

I had someone trying to talk me into something the other day and they prefaced their sales pitch with “nothing is perfect”. My reply was, “perfection is in the eye of the beholder. What l think is perfect may be less than perfect for you.”

Since that statement, I’ve been saying an affirmation daily that I will not settle because I deserve what I want. I deserve what my heart desires. I will keep the faith that I will get my heart’s desire.

And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith.” 
Matthew 21:22

I’ve asked myself how many times I have settled for things or relationships in my life because someone told me that perfection didn’t exist. We should never let someone tell us that we should accept something because perfection doesn’t exist. We should never accept it’s this or nothing. I’d rather have nothing than settle.

We must believe that God will answer our prayers and give us the desire of our hearts. It may not come on our time but it will come right on time. If we settle because we are impatient or believe we don’t deserve more then we may never see more. When we stop settling we will see more, see better, prayers answered and what we deserve.
