I can remember it like it was yesterday – writing in my journal on February 14th asking God to make sure that this was my last year without a valentine. It was then that having someone was more important than anything else. Well, you can rest assured I didn’t have a valentine the next year either.
Was God trying to teach me a lesson? I’m not sure if it was intentional or not, but it worked. I learned that I couldn’t allow what was happening around me to negatively affect what God was doing in my life.
Yes, there are hard to deal with emotions that will arise in you during holidays such as Valentine’s Day. But, learning how to be okay alone is one of the most mature places you can ever get to.
I want to pray over you for 3 specific things as you journey through this Valentine’s Day single.
- That you will be content in God’s process over your life,
- You will fall more in love with God as your first covenant relationship
- You will be grateful that you’re not in a toxic relationship suffering. There’s a powerful quote that says, “ I rather be single than lied to, disrespected, or cheated on.”
Father, I thank you for your precious child as they go through this holiday single, but not alone. I speak the joy of contentment in you over them that they will embrace your process and trust it as the greatest journey to be on.
May they fall more in love with you this Valentine’s day and rediscover the fruit of living a life solely for you. I pray the spirit of gratitude would enter their hearts, soul, and mind that they are not locked up in a toxic relationship taking them no where.
And, lastly Father I pray for my brother/sister’s future spouse. May they be found at this very moment preparing themselves for the greatest season of their life. May their hearts be guarded from all distractions of the enemy in order to fully attentive for when your perfect timing comes to bring them together.
BMWK, what are you praying about this Valentine’s Day?
