If your single, don’t feel like you are missing out on Valentines. God has a plan for your life, and it very well could include a future marriage. However, your life is great with or without a mate. God has a plan for you as an individual, and today is the day to embrace that.
So many people who have married simply to have a spouse, and have not waited for a good mate, have regretted their short-sited decision. It’s much worse to be in a bad marriage then it is to have temporary times of loneliness as a single. If you do marry someday, you will look back on all the wasted energy you spent fretting over your singleness with regret. In fact, there may be some days you will actually miss the solitude and simplicity of being single. Singleness is a gift, not a disease.
So whether your single or married, let’s make this Valentines about God. As we realize that He is the fulfillment of our deepest desires, then our current or future romantic love will mean more!
