Do you feel loved?
Do you have a Valentine? Maybe not – or maybe you do after all.
This piece about Valentine’s Day history intrigued me. I found the history fascinating. What conviction Valentine held!
As Valentine’s Day approaches, our chance of similar persecution seems low. Love still sifts through the air, albeit more freely. But not everyone feels they have a Valentine.
But maybe Christians have a Valentine after all.
Our groom, Jesus watches and waits for His bride – you and I if we’re believers in Christ. He stands drenched and overflowing with love. Call it a Valentine, if you will, albeit a slightly different angle from St. Valentine.
Sometimes it’s easy to forget we are loved. The groom awaiting his bride seemingly turns blurry, and we feel anything BUT loved.
Maybe someone has tossed dating or marital rejection our way, splattering its juice on us. Perhaps a spouse has offered less than kind words, parents left us in the dust for some other Cinderella life, or a child simply can’t stand to be near. We soak in feelings of rejection. It happens.
But there’s ONE who hasn’t rejected us. Never will.
There’s One who stands ready for acceptance: our groom. Will you be His bride?
Today, tomorrow, the rest of this week consider living loved. Stand intentional, living in the everlasting love of Christ, the faithful arms of our Father. After all, our groom awaits.
Happy Valentine’s Day, friend.
