“For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom His whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge- that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” NIV
I will confess, I used to dread Valentines Day. For any single, it can be a difficult day. But let’s just take this day with its root meaning – love.
As mums, our children need our unconditional love. It is crucial for their well-being to know that they are loved and that they are love-able! What makes your child feel loved? When my oldest son, Evan, was 9 years old, he told me that it made him feel “so loved” when he would crawl into his bed that had freshly washed sheets and blankets. I was really surprised. Ask them today, “What makes you feel loved?”, or “When do you feel loved?” Then pour your love all over your kids today…no matter how old they are!
And now for you dear friend. There is some-One who loves you more than you could ever imagine, and you are on His heart today. His love will meet all of your needs. You are never alone!
Meet with God today; express your love for Him (or ask Him to help you love Him more) and celebrate His great love for YOU!
May God’s peace and joy be with you today! And remember you are loved! ❤
