Be God's Valentine

Do you get any Valentines yesterday? Valentine's Day is a great day to write and receive love notes. There is nothing sweeter than having the one you love share their feelings with you.  Getting love notes from your kids is especially sweet. Reading "You are the best mom ever" is a wonderful feeling.

But what if you are alone on Valentine's Day? Or if even with your family around, you weren't feeling the love?  Remember that God is love. (1 John 4:8) And God wrote a love letter to us. It's called the Bible, and here are some excerpts from that love letter.

I love you. (John 3:16)
There is nothing you can do that will make me stop loving you. (Romans 5:8)
I will never leave you. (Joshua 1:5)
You are valuable to me. (1 Cor 6:20)
I rejoice over you with singing. (Zeph 3:17)
I will do more for you than you can ask or imagine (Eph. 3:20)
I want to encourage you and give you hope. (2 Thess 2:16-17)
There is nothing than can separate me from you. (Romans 8:38-39)
Be Mine. (1 Cor 6:19-20)

Hallmark holidays can be hard when you aren't in the perfect relationship. But then no relationship is perfect...except the one between you and God.  Won't you be His Valentine?

Beautiful Valentine's message! My husband proposed on Valentine's day 16 years ago. For the first few years he'd surprise me with wonderful gifts. Then we just stopped celebrating it, or at least he stopped.:)

For years when I'd cry and get upset over it, thinking he didn't love me, I found great comfort knowing God still loves me. And of course God eventually showed me that my husband loves me too. He just didn't show it the way I was expecting him to.

Now when Valentine's comes around, I tell him a few days before that we are celebrating it. Sometimes men just need a little reminder:)
