Wishing you a very Happy Valentine’s Day!! I pray that each of you feel special, loved, and appreciated on this day and every day!
Singles…please don’t let what this day represent force you to sulk and be depressed. I know it’s frustrating and you cannot wait for this season of singleness to end. I know because I too at times feel that way! But you are in a very good place because God is saving you for His very best!
Rest assured that He knows every emotion you are dealing with today, yesterday, and how you may feel tomorrow. Trust and believe that He knows what He is doing. I write this with tears in my eyes because my heart goes out to you. I remember how upset this holiday used to make me feel. Even though I’m at a better place, sometimes the devil will still try to attack me to make me forget the love that God has for me, and the fact that God has not forgotten about me.
So my fellow single, understand that this is a day of love. You don’t have to receive flowers, jewelry, candy, or have a nice dinner given to you by some random guy (who is probably not meant to be with you anyway) in order for you to celebrate this holiday.
Celebrate the fact that God loves you…that he is going to bring you someone to love you with unconditional love EVERYDAY not just one day out the year…that you will have someONE who will take you on dates for a lifetime & not a lifetime full of random dates…that He made you so He knows what’s best for you…that He surrounded you with true, genuine friends and family members that care for you…most importantly, celebrate the fact that God has not forgotten about you!! So spend some time in His presence and let God know how much you love Him. Then, grab your single girlfriends and go out and have some fun. If they are “booed” up, then take yourself out, buy yourself some flowers, cook yourself a nice meal, spend time with your first love (God)…whatever you decide to do, seek out the love that already exists around you!
If no one tells you this today, let me be the one to say:
I love you! I’m praying for you! And Happy Valentine’s Day!!
