Why do we celebrate Valentines? I thought of this as we are fast approaching the holiday. Is it just so Hallmark and other company’s can push their sales? Is it for husbands – or wives, cause let’s be honest – can make up for stupid stuff done the rest of the year? I don’t think so. For me personally, Valentines represents the one day that I don’t just say I love you to my man, it is dedicated to the love we have built together. To me, it is a day I can show others what true and pure love looks like. Because I know that I am loved by my God, and He is the only one who can make me complete and happy, I am able to love my spouse, in both good times and bad. Now, I am not trying to be preachy here, so just go with me.
As a parent, you want your child to grow up to be a strong, confident, good human being. Right? Well, if they only felt happy when you gave them things and bent to their will, they wouldn’t grow up to be all those things. They would be selfish, self – centered individuals. This is what I am talking about. Because the child knows you love them, and they choose to have a close relationship with you, then they can grow up to love others properly and become good people that abide by the laws of the land. They know they are loved, they know where their joy comes from – because no matter what mom and dad loves them -, and they know what pure love looks like. This is my hope this Valentines Day. I hope that even if no one tells you how much you are loved or what your true worth is, I hope you read this carefully and get this deep in your heart. Jesus loves you deeply, he isn’t mad at you, and he actually wants to have a fun, cool, deep, roll – with – the – punches kind of relationship with you. If you will hold on to hope and know that regardless of what others say or what is going on right now, there is a God, he is real, and He loves you like crazy. This is a 24/7 kind of love. And this is what I think Valentines is really about!
