Valentine’s day, my dear

Antique_Valentine_1909_01I will be out of the blogosphere for a couple days, going out of town with my beautiful true love valentine of 33 years.  🙂

So, my dear, I will leave you with a song by Hunter Thompson called “My Dear”…and a thought.

And that thought is this… 

That God FIRST wanted you to be HIS valentine long before you ever thought about wanting to be His.

“We love Him because He first loved us.” (1 John 4:19 NKJV)

Which means He didn’t wait for us to get our act together. In fact, He proved His love, even before we were bound and determined to reject His overtures—before we got busy running after our counterfeit affections…

“But think about this:
while we were wasting our lives in sin,
God revealed His powerful love to us in a tangible display—
the Anointed One died for us.” (Rom.5:8 The Voice)

Beloved,  you have captured His heart. Jesus loves you as much as the Father loves Him, and the Father loves you the same (John 15:9; 17:23). Just how much love do you think that is?

So, abide in that love.

Stay there, stay put…open your heart more to Him.

He will never let you down or leave you and His love never gives up and never runs  out!

So, like Paul, I pray that you

“may be able to comprehend with all the saints
what is the width and length
and depth and height—
to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge;
that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.” (Eph.3:18-19 NKJV)

In other words, that you would comprehend the incomprehensible, fathom the unfathomable, know the unknowable…and, by the way, be filled with all the fullness of God! (Just how full is that?)

So, my dear

Considering these things

Know that you are very dearly loved!

Many blessings to you this Valentine’s Day

Woh woh woh woh
Woh woh woh woh

I am Yours and You are mine
I am ravished by the sight
Of one glimpse into Your eyes
My lover’s coming for His bride

For there is none upon the earth
That I desire before You Lord
For You’ve been faithful all my days
Your love endures it will never fade away
I need to say what my soul is singing
I need to say what my heart is screaming

That I love You my dear
That I love You my dear my dear
That I love You my dear
That I love You my dear my dear

You’re everything I ever wanted
Everything I ever needed
(You’ve ravished my heart You’ve ravished my)
(You’re) everything I ever wanted
Everything I ever needed
(You’ve ravished my heart)
