If Valentine’s Day or February or just the topic of love is hard for you, I hope this encouragement will hit the spot for you today.
I want to share THREE points with you today if you find yourself in a hard place.
You are loved.
Verse after verse after verse straight from God’s Word reminds us of His unconditional, never-giving-up love for us! If you are having trouble knowing where to focus your mind, read through any of these verses. Mediate on them. Write them. Speak them.
You are forgiven.
Because you are forgiven, you can also forgive and then in turn love freely. I am not an expert on forgiveness, but I am an expert on holding grudges. Ahem. And sometimes the person you need to forgive is YOURSELF. Meditate on the truth that you are forgiven!
Go and love.
Sometimes when we are down and out and feeling unloved, what we really need to do is take our eyes OFF of ourselves! Who can you go encourage today? Who can you show love to? Who can you take a meal to? Who can you text a kind message to?
When we take our eyes off of ourselves and begin to serve someone else, we can find TRUE joy and peace and walk in the love and forgiveness we have been given.
So, friend…for today I want you to focus on these THREE THINGS. Speak them aloud. Let the truth be louder than the lies! YOU ARE LOVED. YOU ARE FORGIVEN. Now…go and love!
