Singles Awareness Day, more commonly known as Valentines Day, is all about making you feel crazy sorry for yourself.
I mean it’s about love—celebrating love.
If you’re in a relationship, congratulations! I hope you and your other half make the day special, saturated in rosy romance. But for me and my single pringles out there, it’s a reminder of the fact that we don’t have that special someone to shower us in love, attention, and gifts.
*Shout out to the friends and family for their efforts to make this day sweet for us!*
Leading up to this day, we single folk like to collect the fixings for a Happy Valentines Day without the main ingredient: a significant other. Our recipe includes chocolate, rom-coms, wine, etc, and we give it all to ourselves to make us feel a little bit more special. Why? Because the world says we need to feel a little more loved on this day.
Even though I might be among you curled up on the couch watching a romantic comedy with a chocolate heart in hand, I want to give you a few reminders for this day.
You are beautiful. (Ecclesiastes 3:11)
You are loved. (Zephaniah 3:17)
You already have the hero who gave up His life for you. (Romans 5:8)
You have the deepest love letter in your possession. (John 15:10)
You have a love who is not stingy with gifts. (James 1:17)
Be thankful for your singleness. Be thankful for your significant other. Both can be such a blessing in your life, and it would be a shame to waste a blessing because of the warped perspective we have about love.
I invite you to join me in reflecting on our first love; how beautiful and pure we look in His eyes, and how we live to show the world our love for Him.
So, if you’re like me and have a twinge of self-pity rise within you on Valentines Day, remember a greater love surrounds you that is deeper and wider than any love a human can give.
God bless you lovelies!
I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you.
