A Valentine from God to YOU!

Dear friends, you are so loved!

A Valentine may play a love song for you, but God sings you the sweetest love song in the universe.

The Lord your God…will rejoice over you with gladness. He will keep you quiet with his love. He will rejoice over you with singing.  Zephaniah 3:17

A Valentine may give you flowers, but God sent you the most beautiful rose of all, Jesus.

I am the rose of Sharon, and the lily of the valleys.  Song of Solomon 2:1

A Valentine may take you out to dinner, but God has invited you to the most amazing feast ever given.

Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!  Revelation 19:9

A Valentine may bring you chocolate, but God provides you with something even sweeter, His Word.

How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth .  Psalms 119:103

A Valentine may be far away, but God is always with you.

I am with you always.  Matthew 28:20

A Valentine may give you something, but God has given you everything.

God gives us richly all things to enjoy.  1 Timothy 6:17

A Valentine may love you for a lifetime, but God loved you before you were born and will love you for all eternity.
Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love…with loving-kindness I have drawn you.  Jeremiah 31:3

My prayer for all of us is that we each spend time at the feet of Jesus, and soak in His Words, so that we can feel how very loved we are by the Lord and by those around us. 

If this is a hard day for you, please know that I’ve prayed for you about that, too.  You are precious to me.  If I can pray for you in any way, please let me know. 🙂

    Thanks Jen. This year especially, Valentine's was not my favorite day… I appreciate the prayers even though you couldn't pray by name. God knew exactly who they were for. 🙂

  2. Beautiful!

  3. Jennifer, how like you to post the truth in contrast to the world. I loved it and how it was such a great reminder for each one of us. Only Jesus can truly love us and satisfy the desires of our hearts.

    Love you,
