It seems as if once Christmas is over, the Valentine's Day decorations are filling the aisles of the stores. It could be your favorite holiday, it could be your least favorite. Maybe you have some exciting plans tonight, maybe you'll be working late, or maybe you'll be taking it easy. (Me... I'll be trying to convince one of the personal trainers that has a strict eating routine to eat heart shaped pizza with me in the office... will he eat it on a day that isn't his cheat day, I'll let you know ;) Otherwise, it's the whole pizza for me.. hey, there's nothing wrong with that, right?!)
Whatever you're up to today, wherever you're at in your life.. single, married, engaged, dating.. remember:
You are loved.
You are valuable.
You are chosen.
You are special.
You are unique.
You were created with a purpose.
Whether you have a love of your life, you're loving the moments with your family and friends, coworkers, strangers you talk with at your favorite lunch spot. Whether you feel worthy, insecure, doubtful, fearful, hurt, joyful, at peace, excited, no matter where you're at in your life, no matter what you've done- in the past, last night, or even today, you are valuable and nothing you've done, said, or do could cause Him to stop loving you.
Whether you're reminded of that daily or maybe you haven't before- it still stands true, every single day.
Who you are is enough. There isn't anyone or anything that could make that statement any less true or false. You are enough. You always have been, and you always will be.
The thing is, Jesus died on the cross for you and for I, and He did that because He wanted to give us life. We don't deserve it. We can't earn it, but He loved us too much to not die for us.
And that love isn't just a once a year kinda celebration. This love is forever. It's every single day. It's a love that wipes away our mistakes, our failures. It's a love that fills us with hope, joy, and peace. It's a love that loves us more in a single moment than any other human is capable of loving in a lifetime.
It's a love that Beyonce would refer to as irreplaceable. And it's ours, every single day.
