Valentines Day is over. Pink and red and hearts and flowers and cupids and chocolate and chick flicks and…
The day of LUV has come and gone. My friends and I have joked that Valentine’s Day would be more aptly named “Singles Awareness Day.” The truth is whether you have a sweetie to snuggle up to or simply a box of See’s from your grandma, it’s a day where you are keenly aware of who loves you. This silly holiday evokes emotions ranging from bliss to despair. All this got me thinking… how often do I stop to think about the lover of my soul? What do I feel when I think about God loving me? Do I really believe He loves me, do I celebrate and giggle with my friends over it? How does He love me? The answers are deep and as type these thoughts Zephaniah 3:17 comes to mind:
The Lord your God is with you,
He is mighty to save.
He will take great delight in you,
He will quiet you with His love,
He will rejoice over you with singing.
Who could ask for a better Valentine than that?! I think I’ll dwell on that for awhile. Perhaps the Day of LUV has just begun…
