The Perfect Valentine
The Perfect Valentine:
A Personal Valentine from God
I Love You and Will Always Care for You
My child, have you walked with me this long,
and yet you still wonder at times about My love for you?
What can I do to prove your worth to Me?
What more can I do than to offer My own Son in exchange for your life?
That was My ultimate Valentine gift to you.
Because your performance could never measure up to My standards,
I gave you Jesus.
I love you—simply because you are My child.
Is your burden too heavy for you to bear?
Do your man-made crosses weigh you down?
They were never intended for your arms alone.
Don’t you know how much I care?
I bore the cross so you could walk with footsteps, light and free.
But first, you must release your cares–
and give them all to Me.
-Rebecca Barlow Jordan
For God so love the world that he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16, NIV
A Personal Prayer
Jesus, You are the fulfillment of love. You will never leave us or deceive us. Your love is unconditional and unchangeable. Your wisdom is infinite; Your mercies are always new. Your forgiveness is complete; You are perfect in all you do. Your grace is amazing; Your goodness undeserved; Your care is tender; Your promises are true. Teach us how to love like You, Lord. You are the perfect Valentine!
