Okay people Valentines Day, or as I like to call it “Single Awareness Day” in only a few days away! And if you do have a special some one and you have not made plans, here is your reminder. :)
So many times people use this day to show the people they love how much they mean to them! Isn’t that just the sweetest thing(sarcasm at its best.) I love the day after Valentines Day because that means all the chocolates are on sale! Jackpot for all the single ladies. All the stuff we wanted to be a gift from some one else, we buy ourselves. At half price. That is such a good deal! \
But on a more serious note,
Many young ladies(including myself) get bummed out and think no one loves them and no one really cares. That is not completely true; even though we have a tendency to feel that way. I have wonderful news for all those single ladies who think no one cares…God cares! And God loves you! I know some people are like, “yeah, yeah I already heard that this week,” or “whatever, it doesn’t matter.” Well it does matter because out of all the people on the earth we have the God of Creation loving us. I think that trumps any guy on the planet(no offense men.) How can you beat the God of Love and the one who died to save you from a burning hell?! News flash: you CAN’T!! This is a reminder to myself as well. Being reminded of all God has done for me in my life, from saving my soul to placing me in a Christian home, to placing me at a good job! You may say, “well I don’t have any of those things.” I know God has blessed you in other ways if you are His child! He gave you breath, He gave you a new life, He gave you the ability to learn.
During this time of the year I am also reminded of how God will always love me! Not just on one day of the year or when I do something that pleases Him. Even when I mess up(which is a lot), He still loves me! Rather than focusing on the earthly people who love you this week, focus on the love God has given you!! He is someone who will always love you, no matter what you do! Rather focusing on how you don’t have a “significant other” to shower you with flowers and chocolates, focus on your Savior! The one who can show you what love really means!
But don’t forget those who have always loved you, such as your parents! Let them know you love them and appreciate them! More than just on a “special occasion”. Don’t be gloomy this week! Keep in mind that God loves you and He will always love you!
Happy Valentines Day :)
