“My lips will glorify You because Your faithful love is better than life.”
True Love . . .
Red and pink hearts adorn the aisles of nearly every store I enter. Endless expressions of love are draped on shiny garlands everywhere. Cards and candy abound.
It’s hard to escape Valentine’s Day.
‘Tis the season of love.
But as soon as February 14th passes, the stores will quickly replace the red and pink hearts with green and gold shamrocks. How quickly the love of this world fades.
The world’s idea of love is seasonal, temporal — but God’s love is eternal.
God’s love can’t be marked on a single day on the calendar. His love transcends time and space. True love isn’t dependent on the special plans we make or the fancy gifts we bring; True love is exemplified in the plan of salvation God already made and the Gift of grace He already gave.
God’s love is the only love that will ever truly sustain us. A life without Him is a life without love. Because God is love.
So wherever you are on this 14th day of February, I pray you’ll experience His presence and know that His plans for you are good. Because He loves you. All of you.
It’s really true.
Do you have a Valentine’s Day tradition?
