Valentines Day. The most stressful time of the year. If you are married or courting, well, you better out do yourself from last year. Be more romantic, more extravagant. #stressful.
If you are single, it can be nerve racking to see all these supposedly over the moon happy sappy couples playing tonsil hockey everywhere.
Whatever the case my be, Valentines Day should be a great day to remember and focus on the Love of God!
Because after all…
God Is Love.
So, Here are 6 Reasons you should love yourself for Valentines Day! Because, well, Jesus loves you so you should love yourself too!
1. He Made Me!
“For you created my inmost being;
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;” – Psalm 139
We are who we are because of God! The way we smile or laugh. Most importantly, who we are inside in our heart and soul. Trust and believe that he created us for greatness and nothing less!
2. He Thinks About Me!
“what are mere mortals that you should think about them,
human beings that you should care for them?” – Psalm 8
The creator of the universe, the moon and the stars thinks about us! He thinks about you. You have been running through his mind all day. His thoughts are to love and prospers us. Good and higher thoughts than we think of ourselves!
3. He Buys Me Gifts!
“So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask him.” – Matthew 7:11
He does not give flowers that wither away and die. He does not give us chocolates that melt away or make us fat. He gives us life and life full of happiness. He gave us himself. God so loved the us that he GAVE his only son.
4. He Really Loves Me!
“This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.” – 1 John 4
True Love always. Jesus and You. This is the greatest love story that we are apart of.
5. He Will Love Me FOREVER!
“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. His love endures forever.” Psalm 136
His true love is ETERNAL. His love is not dependent on how we feel. It’s unconditional. There is no condition he asked for you to be in for Him to love you. You don’t have to have you life together. You don’t have to be perfect. He loves us anyway. God showed us his love towards even while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
6. He Will NEVER Leave Me!
“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” -Rom 8
Jesus will never break up with you. He will never cheat on you. He will never leave you. You two, are inseparable. Inseparable for all eternity.
Happy Valentines Day.
