Valentine’s Day —
for hearts and love
First thought —
“God is Love”
~1 John 4:8
His love so all encompassing there is no where for us to go to out-distance its reach. Whatever escape the driver of this pretty pink classic intends to make, the heart’s tied on. Might just be glued to the top, too. It’s going along, making the trip! And the heart is BIG — just like the heart of God.
One theme of my current writing project is choosing life. In the writing process I return to Psalm 139 again and again.
These verses — a huge reminder of just how far God will reach out to us with His love. You are valuable to Him. You are cherished by Him. He chooses you. Your life matters to Him. You are His precious valentine.
I can never escape from your Spirit!
I can never get away from your presence!
If I go up to heaven, you are there;
if I go down to the grave, you are there.
If I ride the wings of the morning,
if I dwell by the farthest oceans,
even there your hand will guide me,
and your strength will support me.
I could ask the darkness to hide me
and the light around me to become night—
but even in darkness I cannot hide from you.
To you the night shines as bright as day.
Darkness and light are the same to you.
~Psalm 139:7-12 (NLT)
