Getting Your Girl Ready for Valentine's Day


You are loved. You are Wanted. In Jesus, you are adored, affirmed and accepted.

Valentine’s Day and school.

I don’t know about you, but for me, those two were a lethal combination.

Whether it was elementary school, walking home with my red paper-covered box containing no Valentine from “him” or my first Valentine’s Day in high school with no flower from my crush, Valentine’s Day for me was just another reminder.

No one wants me. 

Or so I believed at the time.

I know a lot has changed from my days of growing up, but one thing has not.

For many, Valentine’s Day feels like Single Awareness Day; a day that only makes them feel more alone.

So while this day is still a few weeks away, I want to encourage you to begin thinking of those in your life who need to hear:

You are wanted. 

You are loved.

You are adored, affirmed and accepted.

Before the cards and candy arrive to those around them, pour what Jesus says about them:

“My beloved is mine and I am his …” Song of Solomon 2:16

While others may rejected us, He wholeheartedly accepts us.

Let’s make this Valentine’s Day one where those we love feel loved!

  1. Take a moment today to make a list of those around you who need this truth this Valentine’s Day. 

2. Next, stop by the store and pick up some cards. They don’t have to be expensive. The Dollar Store has lots of pretty ones               that will work.

3. Fill the side of the card with verses that speak of their value and worth to Jesus.

Here are a few to help you get started:

1 John 4:16, “And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.” (NIV)

1 John 4:9, “God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him.” (NLT)

Psalm 13:5-6 “But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation. I will sing the Lord’s praise, for he has been good to me.” (NIV)

Psalm 36:5,7 “Your love, LORD, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies … How priceless is your unfailing love, O God! People take refuge in the shadow of your wings.” (NIV)

4. Pop the cards in the mail, making sure they arrive before Valentine’s Day.

Looking for additional ways to pour Jesus’ truth into her heart?

His Revolutionary Love: Jesus’ Radical Pursuit of You, teaches young women how Jesus’ unchanging love changes absolutely everything.

Finding Jesus to be the filler of my love gap made all the difference!

  1. My favorite verse of God’s love to me is Jeremiah 31:3:”The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.” I love the thought that God has loved me from the beginning and He will love me for ever more.

  2. Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

    I love this verse because it shows that he loves us so much he has a plan for my life!

  3. I’m in! I am not sure about which verse. The ones I have memorized relate more to not giving up and not having fear. I would love to win this book!

    Karen, that is a wonderful verse. Thank you for sharing it.

      I have been focusing on those kind too!

      Here is what I read today:

      Psalm 27

      The Lord is my light and my salvation—
      whom shall I fear?
      The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
      of whom shall I be afraid?
      2 When the wicked advance against me
      to devour[a] me,
      it is my enemies and my foes
      who will stumble and fall.
      3 Though an army besiege me,
      my heart will not fear;
      though war break out against me,
      even then I will be confident.
      4 One thing I ask from the Lord,
      this only do I seek:
      that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
      all the days of my life,
      to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
      and to seek him in his temple.
      5 For in the day of trouble
      he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
      he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent
      and set me high upon a rock.
      6 Then my head will be exalted
      above the enemies who surround me;
      at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy;
      I will sing and make music to the Lord.
      7 Hear my voice when I call, Lord;
      be merciful to me and answer me.
      8 My heart says of you, “Seek his face!”
      Your face, Lord, I will seek.
      9 Do not hide your face from me,
      do not turn your servant away in anger;
      you have been my helper.
      Do not reject me or forsake me,
      God my Savior.
      10 Though my father and mother forsake me,
      the Lord will receive me.
      11 Teach me your way, Lord;
      lead me in a straight path
      because of my oppressors.
      12 Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes,
      for false witnesses rise up against me,
      spouting malicious accusations.
      13 I remain confident of this:
      I will see the goodness of the Lord
      in the land of the living.
      14 Wait for the Lord;
      be strong and take heart
      and wait for the Lord.

  4. We love, because He first loved us. ! John 4:19

    1. Lynn Cowell says:

      I’m so glad He did, Deborah!

  5. See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. 1John 3:1
    So Im listening to Selah’s song “How deep the father’s love for us” now

    1. Lynn Cowell says:

      What great timing!

  6. Elaine Ehrhart says:

    For God so loved the world, (Me and you!) that He gave his only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 All we have to do is believe that Jesus died for our sins, accept His gift, and we will spend eternity with our Heavenly Father!

  7. Ps 91:1 he who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [ whose power no foe can withstand] Amplified Bible

  8. Psalm 63:3
    Because your steadfast love is better than life,
    my lips will praise you.

    -better than life!

  9. I’m in! (soooo many verses running through my head.)

  10. meloni williams says:

    1 John 3 :18 18 Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.
    Love this one, Actions speak louder than words!! <3

  11. Evelyn Ramos says:

    Isaiah 43:13-19

    3 “From eternity to eternity I am God.
    No one can snatch anyone out of my hand.
    No one can undo what I have done.”
    The Lord’s Promise of Victory
    14 This is what the Lord says—your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel:

    “For your sakes I will send an army against Babylon,
    forcing the Babylonians to flee in those ships they are so proud of.
    15 I am the Lord, your Holy One,
    Israel’s Creator and King.
    16 I am the Lord, who opened a way through the waters,
    making a dry path through the sea.
    17 I called forth the mighty army of Egypt
    with all its chariots and horses.
    I drew them beneath the waves, and they drowned,
    their lives snuffed out like a smoldering candlewick.

    18 “But forget all that—
    it is nothing compared to what I am going to do.

    19 For I am about to do something new.
    See, I have already begun! Do you not see it?
    I will make a pathway through the wilderness.
    I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.

    1. Lynn Cowell says:

      So, so beautiful!

  12. Jeremiah 31:3

    I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.

  13. Mythyl T. says:

    Romans 5:8

    But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

  14. “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

    I just looked this verse up, typed it up here and then looked up at the comment above mine! Yep I so agree Mythyl! 🙂
    Blessings to you!

  15. I’m in! Thank you! Sounds wonderful!

  16. “Most of all, love each other as if your life depended on it. Love makes up for practically anything.” 1 Peter 4:8 (The Message)
    This is a verse that my family has displayed in our kitchen. It is a daily reminder of the importance of loving each other.

    1. Lynn Cowell says:

      Cristy, I love that you have it front and center, where your family can see this beautiful reminder of love!

  17. 1 Corinthians 13:13❤️

  18. Rebecca D says:

    I love the book of Romans! Every word! But this particular verse is such a great reminder of the VAST, UNFATHOMABLE, ALL POWERFUL, EVER PRESENT and UNCHANGING love of our Lord Jesus. Thank you, Lord!

    “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39

  19. Romans 8:38-39 for me as well!! So many trials these past 5 years. I would love this book for my unsaved daughters.

  20. 1 John 4:16, “And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.” (NIV)

  21. “Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”
    ‭‭Lamentations‬ ‭3:22-23‬ ‭NIV‬‬

  22. Jinky Banks -Connor says:

    I’m in!
    Don’t worry about anything but PRAY about everything…..Philippians 4:6

  23. Count me in! 1john 3:1 ” How great is love our father has lavished on us? That we should be called the children of God and that is what we are. The reason the world does not know us is that it does not know him.”

  24. I’m in…2timothy1:7. God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of power and sound mind….. Amen we walk in faith!!!!
