Ohhh no, not that time of the year, AGAIN.
One of the most dreaded days of the year for a single person is this thorn in the side, Valentine’s Day. The day you get to watch all of the couples on your social media post sappy love letters to each other, the day you that if you choose to brave the public, you get to watch everyone hang all over each other. Lets just be honest, when you are single, Valentine’s Day can be a little bit of a drag.
But what if this year you decide to take a different approach to this holiday centered around love?
(Ice cream cures anything!) 🙂
Of course there is always the option to sit in your pj’s with a big tub of ice cream watching soap operas, but if you want a little change I have an idea.
This Valentine’s Day, go on a date with God.
Some of you are probably thinking, what is this crazy lady talking about?
Here is what I mean; location doesn’t really matter. But if weather permits where you live, how about packing up a picnic, grabbing His love letter to you, and go find your favorite spot out in nature. Wherever that may be for you, take the time to read the word, pray, and spend some time letting God love on you.
Tell Him your troubles, your fear of never being good enough for anyone, and let Him wash away your fear and pain and fill you with hope and love. Spend some quality time with your maker. You will feel refreshed and won’t regret your date, it is with the best guy ever!
Then, treat yourself to something nice! Do something that YOU enjoy, there isn’t one thing wrong with being good to yourself. Go get your hair done, get your nails done, go sweat it out in a dance or yoga class, curl up on your couch with a guitar or a good book. Do something to be good to YOU. Whatever it may be, this day make the choice to allow GOD and YOURSELF to love on you!
And lastly, take this day to write a love letter to your future spouse. Even if you don’t know him yet, Sit down, turn some music on, pray as you write and pour your heart out to him. Tell him you are saving yourself for him, and that you won’t give up hope. I believe in investing in a good journal for your spouse and writing them love letters.
It gives you hope and will be a great wedding day gift. It is a way that you can love on your future husband NOW. There is no better reward than saving yourself for your future life partner, even if that means starting over today with a clean slate and deciding, I will wait for you.
Whatever you decide to do today, don’t allow yourself to be upset, angry, or depressed. Have faith in the fact that God is saving your heart, and that is much better than spending this day with someone who isn’t the right person for you. Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be such a drag after all! Enjoy God, enjoy YOU, enjoy your hope and faith that God will bring along the right person in HIS time.
