Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 1 Corinthians 13:6-7
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows. Luke 12:7
Today is Valentine’s Day. People are searching for love and acceptance. We all were created to love. God created us in His image: God is love. Therefore, we give love and we are able to receive love. We show love in many different ways. Some people today are hoping to receive love through a gesture of kindness: some enjoy flowers and chocolates while others enjoy cards or handmade gifts. We all want to feel like we matter to someone. And you do!
You are special! You are valuable! The One who created the world loves you and knows you intimately. He knew you before you were created. He knows every hair on your head, every time you’ve been hurt, when you’ve failed, and everything you’ve succeeded at. He loves you unconditionally! You don’t have to bring Him flowers or chocolates. He’s right there next to you and He’s waiting for you to love Him too!
Open your heart to Him today and be filled with the greatest love of all!
Prayer: Dear loving Father, thank you for today and every day that we have breath. Help us to see that you love us deeply so that we may overflow with your love to those around us. In your Son’s precious name, Jesus. Amen.
