Valentine’s Day has made me a bit nostalgic. I am very fortunate to be surrounded by people who love me. The first that comes to mind is my loving and supportive husband. We have weathered years of struggle and ministry demands to be madly in love, looking forward to the years ahead. I’m very private about our relationship because it is…ours. But, I love that goober and always will.
Did you know….

anyhoo, with this buzz about Valentine’s Day, I can’t help but think of the One who loves me most.
Listen, I’m not an easy one to love. If you’re honest, you’ll likely say the same about yourself. At our core nature, we can be selfish, demanding, moody and even greedy little “punch-kins”.
This is all part of the human condition. Even if you’ve matured to master some of your natural inclinations, you’re still no walk in the park.
Isn’t it a blessing to know that Jesus loves you in spite of all your weaknesses? There is absolutely no personality flaw, no sinful act and no being in heaven or earth that can separate you from this love. It is secure. You can’t even walk away from it (imagine that!) and He never ever would.
It’s nice to love, but the real riches lie in who loves you back.
Today, please abandon your insecurities and know that Someone loves you.
Your key tip is remembering who loves you.
1. You are pretty enough
2. You are smart enough
3. You are capable enough
4. Your size doesn’t bother Him
5. Your teeth are fine
6. Your voice is beautiful to Him
7. Your skin glows in His sight
8. Your weaknesses do not make Him love you less
9. Your mistakes never faze Him
10. Your feet are not too big or too small – they are perfect
11. Your secret thoughts do not make Him love you less
You are loved, Girl, right this very moment. You’re His baby girl and nothing you can do, say, think or imagine will ever change that.
