Love.

6 Feb

Valentine’s Day. It seems like people either love the holiday or hate the holiday.

Usually, those who hate it are single. I will admit it – I’ve been there. When you are single, it seems like it’s all a bit too much and over-commercialized. You can’t appreciate it because you have nobody to give anything to and know you won’t be receiving anything from anyone.

You hate the holiday not for what it is, though, BUT because you hate the fact that you are single!!! Everywhere you go, seeing all of the pink, the hearts, the chocolates; all of it serves as a constant reminder of the fact that you are single.

Don’t be depressed because you are single!
ENJOY your single life!!

Don’t be jealous of your friends who are in relationships!
Be happy for them!!

Don’t think you can’t be loved!
You are already so incredibly and unconditionally loved!!

  • Romans 8:37-39  No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Don’t let your relationship status define you!
Be confident in who you are in God!!

CHANGE YOUR THINKING!!! BREAKTHROUGH THAT SMALL NEGATIVE THINKING!

God has an awesome plan for your life! Get a vision for marriage and get excited for it!!!

  • Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

This Valentine’s Day, let’s be thankful for the amazing love we receive from our Father, give it back to Him, and share it with everybody else.

  • Psalm 136:26 Give thanks to the God of heaven, for his steadfast love endures forever.

How should love look??

I think our image of love has been twisted by the media and commercialization. Hollywood’s version of love is really lust. Desire, ecstasy, sex.

Real love should look like this:

Love is patient. Love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. (1 Corinthians 13:4-7)
