Hey you. Your Instagram feed or Facebook timeline will be an endless of stream of pretty flowers, date nights & sweet messages today. But your phone hasn’t rung at all; neither has your doorbell – nor do you expect it to. In reality, Valentine’s Day doesn’t change the truth of your situation, but it certainly amplifies it!
And so this is a simple note to those who may be feeling down, alone & unloved today: You Are Loved. By me, yes, but also by a Love much greater and much more worth having.
In the Bible, it is said time and time again how God loves us not because we are good, but even when we are bad.
“But God proves his own love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)
This is a love that sees beyond the flowers and the cards, and the pretty dresses and make up, that has seen all of you, and still loves you for it.
As CS Lewis says, “He loved us not because we were lovable, but because He is love”. So be comforted in the knowledge that you are so loved, more than you can ever imagine!
