Special days can be great, but they can also be stressful. Especially if we don’t fit into the world’s expectations related to that day. If Valentine’s Day is one of fun celebrations, chocolate, and flowers, great. But if your situation is such that all the world’s focus on the lovey-dovey stuff makes you want to scream, cry, or just hide out until it all blows over, I get it! And I want to remind you that you ARE loved! You are a dearly beloved child of God!
It is my hope that you will see what great love the Father has lavished on YOU through Jesus.
Listen to these words from Philippians 2: 6-8 that describe the mindset of your Lord for you:
[Christ Jesus ] Who, being in very nature God,
did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;
rather, he made himself nothing
by taking the very nature of a servant,
being made in human likeness.
And being found in appearance as a man,
he humbled himself
by becoming obedient to death—
even death on a cross!
THAT my dear is the length and depth your God was willing to go to reconcile you to himself.
That is a love that you can count on and celebrate.
That is a love that will never forsake you, never fail, and always be sufficient to carry you through whatever you face.
So, meditate on God’s love for you, His beloved child!
Happy Valentine’s Day,
