“If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love. Love never gives up. Love cares more for others than for self. Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have. Love doesn’t strut, doesn’t have a swelled head, doesn’t force itself on others, isn’t always “me first,” doesn’t fly off the handle, doesn’t keep score of the sins of others, doesn’t revel when others grovel, takes pleasure in the flowering of truth, puts up with anything, trusts God always, always looks for the best, never looks back, but keeps going to the end.” ~1 Corinthians 13:1-7 (MSG)
Today is Valentine’s Day. The day of love. Spouses and couples in relationships and friendships exchange flowers, candy, cards…as a token of love. What a beautiful gesture. But, there are those that are not in marriages or relationships. There are those out there who don’t feel loved. Sadly, depression and suicide sometimes stem from pure loneliness. And many of these cases can be cured if only they knew that they WERE loved!
I just want you to know that God loves you. He loves you JUST as you are! There is nothing that you’ve done so bad that He will ever take His love away from you. You can’t get so low that the love of God can not reach you. God doesn’t just HAVE love, HE IS LOVE! I know that you may want a companion to love but until God sends him/her, let the LORD love you! His love is so real. In 1 Corinthians 13, the Apostle Paul reminds us of what REAL love is. This love, God’s love is available to you. As the song says, His love NEVER fails, NEVER gives up and NEVER runs out on you.
On this Valentine’s Day, I want to share something with you all that I read from one of my sisters in Christ, Evangelist Latina Cunningham. She shared some REAL wisdom on this subject. Take a look at this. She says…
“Can i give some of you ladies some advice and wisdom . Stop telling all your business on FB everybody don’t need to know about your relationship! If you post more about a relationship then you post about your accomplishments and goals you need to really have a reality check. If nobody else tell you the truth let me be the first STOP IT! It makes you look bad and its not lady like nor is it classy. Get to a place where your emotion are govern by GOD and not a man. Some of y’all got more patience for a man than your own children whom you carried and gave life too. You rather take the time and energy to help raise him then your children. If you dating you need to date with a goal marriage but my friend, my sister, my daughters make sure that you’re ready to date stop dating to fill voids and empty spaces in your life and to make you feel like you somebody. Some of your post tell the secrets of your heart and show the wounds of your frame. Remember while you trying to date and be found sharks smell blood! Be healed and made whole Beautiful because you are so worthy of the best you just got to know it! love you all! Happy Valentines Day!”
