Valentine's Day, a day to show love to a significant other or family member. A time to give gifts and show as much love as you want/can. Or also known for "The Saint Valentine's Day massacre" Ha. But anyway... Being a single man has it's advantages.. A lot of down time to be one of them. Which allows me to just try and relax and catch up on some reading, writing music or just even some prayer. These past couple weeks I have had a lot of that, and it just made me feel better about myself. Also I've been working out more which has tons of effect! But today I spend valentine's day alone..well sort of, ha. Yet it was filled with some fun stuff as well. To start off I did my morning workouts, and I came across this across this couple! They stopped me and asked me to take their picture, so I proceeded to. While I was doing that, I kindly asked them about their life and it amazed me how a couple so old can last that long. As morning became afternoon I was stuck at home doing nothing, did some reading and ate a little bit. Then I took my sister to the ER which was a little scary. But throughout the afternoon I see all these smiles on peoples faces, and I'm just loving it. Anyway..i need to get to the point of this blog lol.
Love is an amazing gift you guys. Get this:
He loved you & thought about you constantly, even before anyone knew your name.
“13 For it was You who created my inward parts; You knit me together in my mother’s womb. 14 I will praise You because I have been remarkably and wonderfully made.Your works are wonderful, and I know this very well.15 My bones were not hidden from You when I was made in secret, when I was formed in the depths of the earth. 16 Your eyes saw me when I was formless; all my days were written in Your book and planned before a single one of them began. 17 God, how difficult Your thoughts are for me to comprehend; how vast their sum is! 18If I counted them, they would outnumber the grains of sand; when I wake up, I am still with You.” ~ Psalm 139:13-18
He loves you so much that He know everything about you.
“But even the hairs of your head are all numbered.” ~ Matthew 10:30
He protects those who love Him.
14 “Because he holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him; I will protect him, because he knows my name. 15 When he calls to me, I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him and honor him. 16 With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.” ~ Psalm 91:14-16
His love for you has no end.
”1 Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever. 2 Give thanks to the God of gods, for his steadfast love endures forever. 3 Give thanks to the Lord of lords, for his steadfast love endures forever;
4 to him who alone does great wonders, for his steadfast love endures forever; 5 to him who by understanding made the heavens, for his steadfast love endures forever; 6 to him who spread out the earth above the waters, for his steadfast love endures forever; 7 to him who made the great lights, for his steadfast love endures forever; 8 the sun to rule over the day, for his steadfast love endures forever; 9 the moon and stars to rule over the night, for his steadfast love endures forever” ~ Psalm 136:1-9
Nothing will keep you from His love.
38 For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, 39 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. ~ Romans 8:38-39
In love, He died to save you.
“6 For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly.7 For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— 8 but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” ~ Romans 5:6-8
So on this Valentine’s day, know that He loves you more than you will understand.
