Valentines From Above

What if you went to the mailbox on February 14th and found a Valentine from your Heavenly Beloved? What a unique surprise! As you quickly open the envelope and begin to read the card, you notice once again all the promised ways He wants to show His love to you. You might smile, hold the card close to your heart while reminiscing about how blessed you are that the two of you found each other.

What might the card say?

To my dearest Beloved:

I will never leave or forsake you.
I will always provide for you.
I will encourage you through everything you face.
I will always be honest with you and tell you what I think.
I have already secured a way for us to be together forever.

Then, as you check the mailbox once again, you discover a red heart-shaped box still inside. Upon opening it, you find small heart-shaped candies with words of love written on them. To the side, you notice a handwritten note saying: These are a few of the expressions of love I have for you. Eat them and remember Me.

What might the candies say?

I love you!
You are beautiful.
You are mine.
You make me smile.
I am crazy for you.
You are special to Me.
You Rock!

As you savor the sweetness of His words, you also pledge your undying love back to Him again as well.

What a wonderful love story the two of you have had. Yes there have been difficult times. Times when you did not understand your Beloved’s ways and arguments on your end would ensue. Sometimes, you crossed your arms and refuse His wise leadership. But being able to be yourself without the worry of separation was one of the qualities you admire and love the most. He always gave you time to understand that His ways have a higher purpose then yours. But no matter what you have been through together, you have always come out feeling thankful for each other’s presence and steadfast heart. No … your life together has not been easy but your commitment will expand over this lifetime and then forevermore. And … it is in those experiential trusts that you find your rest.

Will you allow God to be your Beloved Valentine now and beyond? 

Use this Valentine’s Day to evaluate and recommit your life to the one who loves you eternally. Go ahead and open up your heart once again to what He has to say to you from His Holy Word. Tell Him how you are crazy about Him too! Then get ready to sense His loving arm around you as He responds to your sentiments of love. I promise you, it is a risk worth taking.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.
John 3:16-17

I am my beloved's, and my beloved is mine...
Song of Solomon 6:3


  1. Oh wow, I needed this today! I didn't read this when you posted it, because I didn't receive it in my email. But today was the day I needed it.

    1. Isn't God's timing wonderful. He makes things so personal and right when we need them. Blessings Jamie!
