Waiting for my Valentine 

To my Valentine,

I know you’re out there somewhere, and I like to think that you’re closer than I realize. Everyday I pray that you’re preparing your heart for me, as I am for you. The Lord is using this season of singleness to build us up and strengthen us in Him, so that as we do life together, we’re constantly encouraging each other and drawing the other closer to Him. I want you to love God more than you love me. I pray that we both learn from His love, and can find new ways to love each other through Him.

I’m giddy with excitement for the journeys He’s going to send us on, the people we’ll meet, and I can’t wait to see how He uses us for His Kingdom. When I find it hard to be patient, I just thunk about those things, and it makes the wait easier. I pray that we’re a power couple, on fire for Christ, being a blessing to those around us. I’m positive that doing life with you will be so beyond worth the wait, and I hope that you feel the same way.

They say that good things come to those who wait. Well, I’m here to tell you that I will wait for as long as it takes for God to decide when the timing is right. Waiting and praying and preparing my heart for you.

If you’re reading this, Happy Valentine’s Day, love.

Forever Yours,



The Forever Valentine 


Will you be My Valentine?

I gave my life for you

I bled and died upon that cross

to give you life brand new.


Will you be My Valentine?

I’ll wipe away your tears

I’ll bear your every burden

and comfort you in fear.


If you’ll be My Valentine

I’ll be forever yours,

together for eternity

I’ve opened Heaven’s doors.

“Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you.” 

Hebrews 13:5 

Perfect Love


Perfect Love


More than enough

His love for me

He holds me close

Welcomes me back when I flee


He cleansed my soul

It’s white like snow

His grace is unending

Like a fountain it flows


On the Cross

He bled and died

He gave His life

In exchange for mine


A glorious Savior

His perfect love

One day I’ll join Him

In Heaven above

The Ultimate Valentine


I know that for a lot of people Valentine’s Day is not a holiday to look forward to, (should we even call it a “holiday?”) especially for those of us who constantly find ourselves without someone to celebrate it with. I’ve always been indifferent about it, I’m in no hurry to find a man and take the next step in my life. I’ve found that it’s best to enjoy the season of singleness and live for me and those around me. I know that God has the right man tucked away for me and when the timing is right he’ll be put into my life. Over the last few years, I’ve learned to embrace the “love” theme and make the most out of it. Believe it or not, we ALL have the ultimate Valentine. Yes, He died on the cross for you, He wants to have a personal relationship with you. What about the roses? Chocolates? Fancy dinners? Nah, He’s more of an “eternal life” kind of guy. Ya know, that whole John 3:16 thing, He’s serious! “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” The love that God has for us, as His children is beyond what we can even begin to imagine! 1 John 4:16, So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. HE wants to love you, and wants you to love Him and those around you. He wants to shower you in love ALL YEAR ROUND, not just one day a year. Who elses Valentine died on the cross to save their life? Mine did, Jesus Christ is the Ultimate Valentine. God IS LOVE, it doesn’t get any better than eternal life through Jesus! Happy Valentine’s Day!
