Happy Valentine's Day!
To those of you who are single and wondering if and when you'll meet the right one,
to those of you who are disillusioned and devastated after a break up or divorce,
to those of you who are married but you wonder where the romance and passion went,
or you wonder if you're even going to make it,
or worse, if you even want to try any more,
don't give up,
don't lose hope,
I think the biggest danger of social media is having the illusion that someone,
anyone, has a perfect life.
I think I can speak for everyone I know that's been married for any length of time,
even for those who would describe their marriage as happy,
it is not easy,
in fact, it's often downright hard,
without God's help and grace it's downright impossible.
It takes faith,
it takes hope,
it takes endurance through every circumstances,
it takes more than human love,
it takes God's love.
Whatever circumstance or situation you find yourself in today.
Whether you're single,
in an unhappy relationship,
or blissfully, happily in love,
there's something we all have in common.
Human love is woefully inadequate to meet all of our needs and longings for the long haul.
We all need a love that's bigger, more infinite, and more faithful and steadfast,
than any human being can give us.
We all need God's love.
We need His love to us to fill the emptiness that no human can keep filled,
and through us so that we can love others with faith, hope and endurance.
Thank God that His love is there for us.
All we have to do is open up our hearts to Him and receive it.
Also happily linking up with the lovely Lisha Epperson.
