I love Valentine’s Day. Before marriage I would speak to women about God’s love for us being the greatest love of all. I enjoy sharing what Scripture teaches us about love…God loves us with an everlasting love. He has drawn us with loving kindness. His lovingkindness is great toward us. Love covers all transgressions. Love is from God. Keep yourselves in the love of God. Etc. We were born with a desire to be loved. Satan has extorted this desire. Only God can satisfy this longing to be loved with perfect love. Many times I hear women say they hate Valentine’s Day if they are currently not in a relationship. The Lord has blessed me with a wonderful husband and I am so grateful. All you single women out there need to know the truth…no matter how awesome your spouse is, God is the only one who can satisfy that longing for the deepest love. If you look to a husband or romantic interest to fill that need you will always be disappointed. When I was single I learned a great lesson from Margaret Maxwell, wife of John Maxwell. During Q&A at a conference someone asked her: Does John make you happy? Her immediate response was “No. That is not his job.” Wow. Straight forward. Simple. True.
I have thought about having this on my tombstone: DuAnne Seeley ~ Loved By God.
The Lord your God is in your midst, a victorious warrior. He will exult over you with joy. He will be quiet in His love, He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy. Zephaniah 3:17
