How GREAT is the love
the Father has
LAVISHED
on us.
1 John 3:1
 
 
Do you know, on an emotional level, that God passionately loves you? 
 
When we are facing difficult circumstances, it is tempting to think the difficulties indicate an absence of God’s love.  Equating circumstances with the quality or quantity of God’s love is damaging to our hearts.  God’s love remains the same, regardless of life being painful or comfortable.

Religion that God our Father
accepts as pure and faultless is this:
to look after orphans and widows ….
James 1:27
 
 
For the past few years, I have been hearing about an Advent Conspiracy, which is a holistic approach to Christmas.  I would like to propose a Valentine’s Day Conspiracy:  let’s turn Valentine’s Day into a day where we reach out to and comfort those who suffer from a relationship void.  This year, consider how you might love and care for:
–  single parents 
–  those who have lost a spouse or parent
–  those who live with loneliness 
 
Valentine’s Day must surely be an even lonelier time for these literal or figurative widows and orphans.  I invite you to join in this conspiracy to help them feel the passion of God’s love on this day.

those who do not know they are loved by the Lord

 
Valentine’s Day must surely be an even lonelier time for these literal or figurative widows and orphans.  I invite you to join in this conspiracy to help them feel the warmth of God’s love on this day.  If you like, please anonymously share your Valentine stories after February 14.
