You can either love it or you hate it, but Valentine’s Day is coming in just a few days. Because this holiday can hold either romance or bruises, I wanted to write a little something of encouragement for those without a date this February 14th.
It’s okay to be single on Valentine’s Day. In fact, it’s okay to be single. Period. The pressure to have a date on this particular day can be overwhelming. There can be a lot of doubt, loss of confidence, and just plain depression on the day that celebrates love and relationships.
But take it from me: You will survive.
Don’t give up. As much fun as relationships may be, don’t let one day get you down.
You are loved more than you can even imagine.
Just because you don’t have a date doesn’t even come close to meaning you are worthless.
You are worth more than you can imagine.
Sure, it may be a hard day and you may constantly be reminded that you are single, but that is okay. Your value comes from far more than a boyfriend/girlfriend. It’s so easy to get caught up in the importance society puts on romantic relationships, but please don’t let that keep you down.
You probably desire someone that you can pour love on and that will treat you right and will be cute with you. You may just want/need love. You may want someone to be important to you and treat you like you are important. And you may not have that someone. But the great news is this:
Your value comes from the most important being in the Universe.
Your beauty comes from the most important being in the Universe.
Your love comes from the most important being in the Universe.
You come from the most important being in the Universe.
God loves you. He values you. He sees you as beautiful. You are worth a lot for Him.
The worth He sees in you, the beautiful masterpiece He made you, and the love He has for you is WAY more than any guy or girl could ever show you. He delights in you. You are His treasure. Find hope in His love for you.
Plus, He will never stop loving you.
So push through the romance infused day, keep your head up, and dance in the love God has for you, whether you have a boyfriend/girlfriend or not.
