God's Beloved (A Valentine's Day Post)

I am one of those people who appreciates Valentine's Day and the fact that we honor ALL those we love on this day! But as a single woman, this day is definitely a reminder to me of the fact that I am not married etc yet. However though I know that I am indeed loved and honored by God. I am valuable! I am loved! I am worthy...more precious than silver or gold!

Yesterday afternoon I was out and about doing errands, listening to the radio station K-love when they shared a blog post by Jessica Morris titled "I'm single. Stop Pitying Me on Valentines." As the dj read portions of the blog post, my heart was full..because Morris's words spoke straight to my heart.

The end of the article was one of my favorite paragraphs in the whole piece: "I’m single. Not sick, not a problem and not past my prime. So please don’t pity me on Valentine’s Day, because today of all days, I need your help to remember that my value doesn’t rest in a relationship status, in a box of chocolates or in a red rose. It rests in the fact that no matter what lies ahead of me, I am God’s beloved and His plans for me far exceed the feelings of a day."

My friends, today if you are married, or divorce or single, know that you are one of God's beloved and that is enough! Happy Valentine's Day friends!
