Happy Valentine’s Day guys!
So this might not end up as the most touching blog I’ve ever written, but I promise you it is very practical!
Something I battle with every day is loneliness. I see everyone’s pictures on Facebook of them snuggling with their significant other, and I’m happy for them. But, at the same time, I get super lonely because I don’t have anyone. It’s really hard, guys! I have cried over this so many nights; it’s a hard subject for me to talk about. I have had to learn some truths, though, that I am still learning!
I know these in my heart, but sometimes we need to pray for revelation of the truth. I’ll give you some examples…
Psalm 139:2 says that He knows us better than anyone, even if we don’t know Him.
Psalm 19:63 says that He is our most beloved companion.
In 1 John 3:1, God tells us that it is His desire to overwhelm us with His love!
And finally, in Exodus 19:5 He tells us that we are His treasured possession and NOBODY loves us like Him!
Isn’t that amazing? He is the lover of our souls, and He created us to love on Him!
HE CHOSE YOU!
I know, I know. It’s hard to wrap your mind around it. But to me, it is so encouraging to think that the God of the universe loves me, and that He would die for me on a cross just so I can be forgiven!
You may feel alone, but as a friend told me, “If God is my only friend, He’s the only friend I need”!
Remember, God loves you so much! And so do I!
