there was this game that we all played when we were little tots
we would pull off a flower's petals while saying, he loves me, he loves me not
but if we were to play this game in regards to ourselves
would we be honest in saying, I love me not, I love myself?

the act of self love is inferred in the word of God
to love oneself as God has loved you from the very start
for love is a verb it's an action projected towards a person, place or thing
but to love oneself what does it comprise of and what does it truly mean?

so if loving oneself is a given, why do people commit suicide?
if loving oneself is normal behavior, why do people have self-loathing inside?
are you in the loving zone? are you capable of loving at all?
are you in the loving zone and can you respond to God's call?
to love yourself as God loves you
to have a respect for yourself that comes shining through

now Jacob was in love with Rachel so for her hand he labored seven long years
but when it came time her father took advantage of Jacob 
who was drunk on good cheer
Laban gave Leah to wife instead as she was his eldest daughter
Laban said this is our custom but for seven more years I'll give you the other
now Jacob loved Rachel more than Leah but no progeny did she give to him
but Leah unloved by her husband provided him with six healthy children

but God loved Leah as she was a devoted disciple of Christ
and that is why He blessed her with the gift to give life
never let the devil in your ears whisper any disbelief or doubt
love yourself as God loves you and it will somehow always work out

do i love me? do i love me not? that is the question in life
do i love myself with a passion like my Savior Jesus the Christ
now when God blesses you while you're in the loving zone
don't allow demonic influences to come between you and the Heavenly Throne
as it's all about the right relationships that you develop in this life
to love yourself, to love others and to have the love of Christ
