A New Tradition: Celebrating God This Valentine's Day

It’s that time again…

Valentine’s Day is upon us. The gifts are bought, the flowers are sent, and the reservations are made. Today is the day that everything we see is red or pink and covered in hearts. This is tradition, right?

But what if we were to start a new tradition? What if, in addition to celebrating and loving the special people in our lives, we spend some time celebrating and reflecting our love for God?

This Valentine’s Day, let us have a heart like David’s. In Psalm 63, David writes about the love and satisfaction he finds in God:

“O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water. So I have looked upon you for sanctuary, beholding your power and glory.” – Psalm 63:1-2

A powerful testimony, isn't it? David w as devoted to being a man after God's own heart. An we are called to do the same. On a day dedicated to love, let's take a moment and remember our love for God and what that means.

To love God is…… to know Him, to worship Him, to praise Him, to put Him first, to desire Him, to obey Him.

Today, amidst the gifts and plans, I challenge you to set aside some quiet time to talk with God and reflect on your love for Him – your true Valentine.
