I used to hate Valentine’s Day.
I have the Timehop app on my phone that shows me what I posted years ago to the day and lately, past-Tat has been posting a lot of Valentine’s Day hate.
I think that maybe I hated it because I was single and alone and in today’s society, being alone and single on Valentine’s Day is detrimental.
I also don’t think I really understood Valentine’s Day. Not that my interpretation of it today is the real reason for it, it’s just what I’m choosing to believe.
I think we can blow Valentine’s Day out of proportion. Sure it’s nice to receive love but I want to be in a relationship where I receive love every day, not just on one special holiday.
While I do think Valentine’s Day can get a little crazy, I also think it can serve as a great reminder of love and who loves us. I’ve been thinking a lot about love lately and what it means to fiercely love others unconditionally.
So here’s my Valentine’s Day reminder to you;
You are so loved.
By your family, your friends, me and the most important man to ever walk the earth.
Jesus loves you deeper and wider than any human ever could and I hope that you know that today.
I hope you know that He loves you intimately and fully. He knows you deeply, He knows things that you might not even know yourself and to know someone like that is to experience a whole different level of being deeply, intimately and passionately in love.
He loves you.
His love is never going to stop, it’s never going to give up, it’s never going to run out or dry up or get old. It is a constant and it will always be there, that you can count on.
When it feels like you’re all alone, or when you feel like hope has run out, He is there and He loves you.
I hope you know that this Valentine’s Day.
