Perfect Love by Bridget A. Thomas

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. Many people around the globe will celebrate by giving their loved ones sweets, flowers, or cards. Depending on what country you are from, it might be a day strictly for lovers, or it might also be a day for friends as well. (Here is an interesting article that explains different Valentine’s Day traditions around the world.) For the most part, this can be a day filled with fun. But there are people who dread Valentine’s Day as well. If someone does not have a significant other, it can be hard to see the world celebrate this day of romance. And even if someone does have a significant other, there is no guarantee that this day will be a special one. Unfortunately, we often look to other people to fulfill us, love us, and make us happy. But another person can never do all of these things perfectly all the time. No matter how you view Valentine’s Day, I have good news. If Jesus is your Savior, then you can look to Him for a perfect example of love. Not only on Valentine’s Day, but every day.

No matter what tomorrow holds for you, here are some things you can count on:

  • God loves you so much that He sent His only Son to die for you. (John 3:16)
  • God is love. (1 John 4:8)
  • He calls you His child. (1 John 3:1)
  • You are a joint-heir with Jesus. (Romans 8:17)
  • Nothing can separate you from God’s love. (Romans 8:38-39)
  • His perfect love casts out fear. (1 John 4:18)
  • He loves you with an everlasting love. (Jeremiah 31:3)
  • God hears you. (Micah 7:7)
  • God is merciful and gracious. (Psalm 86:15)
  • He cares for you. (1 Peter 5:17)
  • His steadfast love endures forever. (Psalm 136:26)
  • God has plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11)
  • He has great love for you. (Ephesians 2:4)
  • You used to be far away, but Jesus pulled you near. (Ephesians 2:13)
  • You are a member of God’s household. (Ephesians 2:19)
  • He chose you. (John 15:16)
  • You are God’s masterpiece. (Ephesians 2:10)
  • God’s thoughts about you cannot be numbered. (Psalm 139:17)
  • God sees your heart. (1 Samuel 16:7)
  • He laid down His life for you. (John 10:11)
  • He left the ninety-nine sheep to go after you. (Matthew 18:12-14)
  • God knows you by name. (Exodus 33:17)
  • He rejoices over you with singing. (Zephaniah 3:17)

I hope these reminders help brighten your Valentine’s Day. Remember that when you feel lonely, you always have a Friend who you can turn to. He is always there and He loves you with a perfect love.

    So blessed that we are loved so much by Him. Was reading Psalm 8 today where it says How majestic God is and so worthy of praise and in comparison we are nothing and yet He cares for us.
    Blessings to you Bridget 😊💙 – Manu.

  2. Bridget, what wonderful reminders! Thank you so much. We all need this. Mel works a 24 hour shift tomorrow, so I won’t see him at all. But I know I’m loved by him even if I don’t see him. As for God, I know He loves me, and those verses just emphasize that.

    • 24 hour shift – yikes! That makes me tired just thinking about it. LOL. I am sorry you two won’t see one another. But I am glad you are well loved by your husband and by God! How wonderful to know how much God cares for us! ❤️

    Thanks for Ephesians 2:13! I have a poem I want to share on my poetry blog tomorrow called “Far Away” You gave me another perspective. A comforting one that I wasn’t seeing. ☺ God does supply everything we need, doesn’t He? ☺

    For valentine’s day Andrew’s dad invited us out for lunch with him and mom. I think he was trying to surprise mom, but she caught on. That’ll be nice.

    Thank you for this post, Bridget. I really enjoyed it. I am one of those who doesn’t particularly like Valentine’s day. It makes the loneliness more evident when everyone around you has somebody. It’s a day where it is more, “in your face,” that everyone has someone but you. Obviously that’s not the case but that’s how it feels. Your post was a great reminder of just how good God is. As long as we have Him, we are never alone. He can be everything we need. I know he can take away the loneliness with just one touch! God is so good.

    • I am so glad that this post gave you some comfort for Valentine’s Day. I know exactly how you feel because I am the same way with Mother’s Day. It is painful to see so many other women who have children, when I don’t. I pray that God showers His love on you today and every day! 🌹
