Be God's Valentine

Do you get any Valentines yesterday? Valentine's Day is a great day to write and receive love notes. There is nothing sweeter than having the one you love share their feelings with you.  Getting love notes from your kids is especially sweet. Reading "You are the best mom ever" is a wonderful feeling.

But what if you are alone on Valentine's Day? Or if even with your family around, you weren't feeling the love?  Remember that God is love. (1 John 4:8) And God wrote a love letter to us. It's called the Bible, and here are some excerpts from that love letter.

I love you. (John 3:16)
There is nothing you can do that will make me stop loving you. (Romans 5:8)
I will never leave you. (Joshua 1:5)
You are valuable to me. (1 Cor 6:20)
I rejoice over you with singing. (Zeph 3:17)
I will do more for you than you can ask or imagine (Eph. 3:20)
I want to encourage you and give you hope. (2 Thess 2:16-17)
There is nothing than can separate me from you. (Romans 8:38-39)
Be Mine. (1 Cor 6:19-20)

Hallmark holidays can be hard when you aren't in the perfect relationship. But then no relationship is perfect...except the one between you and God.  Won't you be His Valentine?

Hi Kelly,

Thank you for that compilation of verses on God's love. Knowing them in my head is so much easier than being able to fathom it emotionally for me some days. Thanks for the reminders.
