You don’t have to be dating, be married or even be out seeking to find someone on Valentines Day. I propose, those you love (family, friends, nieces/nephews etc.) that you love them like they are your “Valentine” today & EVERYDAY! ”
The holiday shouldn’t be limited to those in a romantic relationship. Show the ones you love you’re thinking of them! 🙂
Quality over quantity, creativity over convention and time over money.
For some… Valentines Day is a very emotional, sad day! But, You still have a chance to change your Valentine’s Day plans. Celebrate your friendships and resist moping. Holidays should not be for “hexing your exes,” but for cherishing time with loved ones, any loved one. Find a buddy and be positive by reinforcing healthy relationships. Don’t limit your efforts to throwing darts at a picture. ;p
Stand up for yourself and for the spirit of “LOVE“ and “FRIENDSHIP“.
Besides, wouldn’t you rather support the ones you love instead of mindlessly supporting a consumer-driven holiday that loses its true meaning in a $14 billion dollar business?
Let’s also not forget how much “GOD” loves us! Definitely more than just on “V DAY”.
A relationship centered in God’s love acknowledges that the Lord is your personal source of significance, security and satisfaction. When I turn to the Lord in my neediness I hear Him say, “The King is enthralled by your beauty; honor Him, for He is your Lord” ~ (Psalm 45:11)
I seek God because “in [His] presence is fullness of joy; at [His] right hand are pleasures forevermore” ~ (Psalm 16:11). God can touch the secret places of my heart like no person ever could reach to give me the satisfaction my soul desires.
When I remember that my Lord thinks about me more times than there is sand in the sea (Psalm 139:17-18), that He saw every tear I cried in secret and collected them in a bottle (Psalm 56:8) and that He has counted every hair on my head (Matthew 10:30) then I am wrapped in His cherishing love.
The truth is, that God bends down to tend to every detail of YOUR life and can/and will give you a place of significance that no other person can give or take away. Let God fill that place in your life instead of expecting another person to fill it. God’s LOVE is an amazing GIFT!
Please take a few mins to watch this inspiring video. I pray it will encourage you!
Press through to Jesus, where you will find healing, peace & LOVE! It’s time to press through the crowd, press through the limitations, press through all the things this world and so many people are trying to push/attack on you, press through your past, press through..to a GOD who LOVES YOU! To a great God, to an AWESOME GOD!
