This may seem an unlikely thought for Valentine’s Day, but this writing is really for the singles. Or anyone feeling lonely today. Valentine’s Day can be so exciting for couples, but for many single or lonely people it can be miserable. I’ve been there before; a reminder that you have lost or never found your true love. Now for some, it’s a rejoicing that you are single and that’s okay too. Either way, there are mixed emotions on Valentine’s Day. Instead of it being a miserable day, though, find a way to change the meaning of it for you. It may be that you decide to bless other single people by baking them cookies or handing out thinking of you Valentine cards. It may be a time to have a get-together with your friends or family, laugh, and have a good time.
More than anything, though, let the meaning of Valentine’s Day be a reminder of God’s love for you whether you’re single, married, widowed, divorced, or separated. He is the perfect husband. He catches your tears, erases your fears, counts the hairs on your head, knew you before you were born, and covers you with His feathers. Imagine Him giving you a conversation heart that says, “Be mine” because that’s exactly what He desires. You!
Know that you are deeply loved by the King my friends,
