True Love

Today is the national day of love.
A day where Hallmark, Russell Stover, and florists make most of their money during the year.
A day where we are encouraged to show our love for others.
A day that is focused on romantic love instead of true love.

It may sound like I'm anti-valentine's day, but I'm not. Any day that gives me an excuse to eat chocolate, is a great day to me! However, I wonder what Jesus thinks of this national holiday of love.
I have a feeling He probably doesn't care for it too much. 
You see, Jesus is all about love. 
He is love.
He is love that never ends. 
It's not shown just one day out of the year, but everyday.
It's not a romantic love, but a love that is deeper. 
A love that is so deep that He died for you.
He tells us to love one another, not only on Valentine's Day, but every day. 
I may not have a boyfriend, but I have something so much better...
a love that isn't defined by a bouquet of roses or a box of chocolate, 
but a love that is defined by sacrifice. 
A love that strong can be found no where else.

If you are celebrating this day with a special someone, I'm so happy for you!
Thank God for that person and the love you share, but don't forget the love that created love.
Praise God that His love doesn't end, but continues forever and ever. 
True love is found in Jesus.
If you don't know Jesus, you don't know what true love entails. 
If you don't feel love, please know that you are the creator of the universe!

Please check out this video about true love by Phil Wickham!

1 John 4:19 says "We love because He first loved us.
Let's have this as our memory verse for the next 2 weeks!

Please keep praying for my dear friend, Katelyn, who lost her mother recently.

ALSO, I promised my friend Marissa a shout out ;) She just started her own blog...check it out!

  1. I don't think Jesus would disapprove of the meaning behind the holiday, just of the pressure to prove love with material gifts.

  2. I read that verse (in John) at my BFF's wedding recently. It's a good one. I'm so thankful that the Lord loves us unconditionally.

    Happy Valentine's Day, girlie!


I'm so glad you stopped by! I can't wait to hear your thoughts. Be blessed :)
