On this day when we celebrate love, may you be surrounded by those who think that you are the most wonderful person in the world. May you show love to those around you in ways that make them want to be better because of it.
My greatest wish for you, however, is that you know that you are loved most of all by a God who has you nestled in the deepest part of His heart. If you haven’t heard that in a while, if you have forgotten it, if it doesn’t feel like it right now, or even if you know it well, I will be the voice that reminds you.
Since before you were born, God had you on His heart, and you will always be there. Don’t ever forget that.
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you.” (Jeremiah 1:4b)
“God loves each of us as if there were only one of us.” – St. Augustine
“The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you” (Zephaniah 3:17a)
Happy Valentine’s Day!
