How Can I Celebrate Valentines Day With A Broken Heart?
Everywhere you look on social media, you’ll see lovers, flowers, and chocolate…in celebration of love.
But what if you don’t feel loved this year for Valentine’s Day? What if your significant other dumped you? What if you’re suffering from a chronic disease and feel marginalized? What if your expectations of what others would do for you today fall on ears that are “absent?” What if your “date” with your birth father got cancelled, or he didn’t show up?
There still is a way…a greater way…that you can survive this day.
Let me introduce you to the greatest Lover of all times.
It’s based on John 3:16: “For God so love the world that He gave His one and only Begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.”
Here is why He is the greatest:
God (the Greatest Lover)
So loved (the greatest degree)
the world (the greatest company)
that He gave (the greatest act)
His only Begotten Son (the Greatest Gift)
that whosoever (the greatest opportunity)
believes (the greatest simplicity)
in Him (the greatest attraction)
should not perish (the greatest promise)
but (the greatest difference)
have (the greatest certainty.
everlasting life (the greatest possession).
