Not Just For V'Day

Posted on 8 February, 2015 at 22:10

I remember when there was a time in my life when Valentine's Day would be such a emotional roller coaster for me. If I was in a relationship I would have anxiety about whether or not he was going to have something special planned, If I wasn't in a relation I would be depressed because I didn't have any one to love on me. My God I tell you it was a roller coaster!. I had to sit myself down one day and really ponder what was this really about.


I came to the conclusion that maybe I just wanna be loved; However if that was the answer it did not explain the anxiety because I had people who loved me. My family rocks I know for sure that this group of people truly loves me. Let me tell you a story, we were away in The Dominican Republic, and a mosquito bit me in the face, which caused me to have two pretty big bumps on my face from the swelling. I walked into my mother’s hotel room and she looked at my face and if you could of seen the expression on her face; She said to me "what happen to your face!" I replied a mosquito bit me she then says "why did he have to bite you in your face" (wasn't sure how to answer that question) I tell you the truth my Mother was so upset with that mosquito that if she would have found "He" he would of died execution style!.


I tell this story to show how extreme my Mother loves me not even a mosquito is safe when it comes to me. I absolutely do not lack in the love department I have family and friends who I know for sure loves me.



Then I thought maybe I was on this emotional roller coaster because I wanted to feel special. Well I couldn't except that answer either because I did feel special. Actually almost on a regular basis like when I went to the spa or treated myself to a day of shopping. When my family would take me out to celebrate my birthday and lavish me with extravagant gifts (I really loved that part). I felt special when we had girls night out because I was bless to have some really cool chicks in my life. I felt special when I went on vacation which I did often.


I came to the conclusion that I clearly didn't have the answer. However when I gave my life to Jesus and accepted him as my Lord and Savior, my way of thinking changed. I no longer ponder but I took it to the Lord in prayer. It was revealed to me that the way I was thinking was influencing my emotions. The Bible says in Proverbs 23:7 for as a man thinketh in his heart so is he. My thinking was influenced by all the hype surrounded around Valentine's Day. The media and commercialism would have you to think that Love and the act thereof is wrapped up in flowers, candy and gift boxes. When you don't receive any of this you’re not special and lack in love . I pray that we all know that's a lie and a trick of the enemy.


Then God said something to me that blew my mind he said "Who could ever love you more then I". I thought about it for minute and I couldn't think of no one. I know that my mother extremely loved me as I mentioned earlier. However God gave up his only son so that I would have everlasting life. Then I thought to myself could my Mother give one of my sisters or brothers to die for me. I know she loves me and would probably give up her own life. However I know she could not make a decision on which child to give up for the next. My answer had to be nobody Lord. God then said to me how can you have anxiety over not having something you already possess?


Listen people of God don't get caught up in the hype of Valentine's Day. The spirit of depression will be going to and fro looking for someone to devour. Don't be it's victim this year but cast him down! I know that there are some single people, recently divorced people and people separated out there. Listen whatever your status is, it is just that your status! It's like when you fill out a form and they ask your status Married, Single or Divorced. The definition of status is - the relative social, professional, or other standing of someone.

Your status does not determined if your loved! The fact is if nobody else loves you God loves you. We should all feel special that we are alive and have the potential to do anything that would make us feel special. We can have love and feel special not just one day but 365 days a year!


I challenge everyone to do something special and love on yourself this weekend or love on someone else. I don't care what your status is do something that makes you feel special!

Remember Always God Loves You!!!!
