Valentine’s day can be a wonderful time to share your love with others. But I also remember many years where I disliked Valentine’s day. I thought I didn’t have anyone special to share it with and if I only had a Valentine my life would be so much better. I still think this holiday is somewhat over commercialized and silly, but at the same time love is something to celebrate.
Whether or not you have someone special on Earth, you always have the greatest Valentine of all in Heaven, Jesus! He died so that you may have life, he carefully knit you together in your mother’s womb and he rejoices over you. If nothing else I pray you rest in Jesus’ love this day. This morning I turned on praise and worship music to help motivate me to clean and you know what as I listened and saw our daughter start dancing I was overwhelmed with God’s love. He is so good!! He hears when we call his name and he heals every part of our broken body. Jesus came not to condemn the world, but to save it. He wants to shower you with blessings and overflow your heart with love. All you need to do is turn toward Him.
Jesus is my Valentine forever!
