Today is Valentine’s Day. A day filled with love and romance for those who are involved with a special someone. It is sweet to see all the smiling faces, the flowers, and the boxes of chocolate. It makes my heart happy.
Those of you who know me know that I don’t really believe in dating, at least not in society’s sense of the term. I believe that God brings specific people into our lives when our hearts are ready, when we aren’t seeking to fill a void or distract ourselves from the healing that is necessary after a broken heart. This year as I allow my heart to heal I am content to rest in the Lord and in His love. I know that He is preparing me for something that may or may not involve having a partner to walk side-by-side with, but in the meantime, I have a pretty great life, an amazing family, and awesome friends.
This Valentine’s day and every day, don’t search for a distraction to fill a void that only the Lord can fill. Look to Him, lean on Him, an rest in His perfect love. And as you do that, look around you at the people in your life and know that you are loved more than you can imagine!
Let all you do be done in love. 1 Corinthians 16:14
