Friends, hear me when I say this – God’s love is sweet. His love is pure. His love is a love that looks past all your scars and all your past. His love forgives your sins and “remembers them no more”. (Hebrews 8:12) His love is faithful to the end. (2 Thessalonians 3:3). He is the source of love, the model of love, the extent of love. “God is love” (1 John 4:16) We are loved by God as He has set His sights on us and is always actively wooing us toward Himself. There is nothing we can do, think, or say that will change His love because there are no surprises for God – He knows us totally and loves us anyway. (Psalm 139:1-5)
This Valentine’s Day, I encourage you whether you or alone or not, to fulfill that empty feeling by “abiding in God’s love and allowing his love to perfect you” (1 Johns 4:12). A husband’s love is a gift and treasure, but God’ love will perfect and complete you. Fill your cup with the living water just as the Samaritan woman did, and thirst no more this Valentine’s Day!
In the end, Valentine’s Day is just one day, and remember it’s a day to love. It doesn’t have to be cynical and whether you have someone romantically to share it with, or if you are spending it as a single gal, you are not alone and there are plenty of people to love on this day. Fill your cup with God’s overflowing-never-ending-most-perfect love this year!
