Valentine’s Day for those who have lost “Their Special Love,” is just another painful reminder of this loss! Nothing can take away the consuming sorrow that grips and hangs over you wherever you go. Words are spoken and hugs are given but, those provide only temporary comforts for the devastating pain.
Only Christ through the Holy Spirit, can embrace you with a secure refuge, as He holds you in His Promises. Allow Christ to bind Himself to you, your grief and weakness right now. This produces a perfect peace amidst the horrid storm. The ache still reverberates to your core, but His perfect peace will pick you up and carry you forward.
God knew and experienced himself the grief that His children would have to walk through. I am sure by now you have been bombarded with wonderful verses on strength and sorrow ….Ps 34, Ps 23, Mt.5:4….but you need something to express and relate to “what a wonderful LOVE” you shared! Not just the loss! These two small verses in the book of Song of Songs, might do just that! May you find strength and peace in this, as you reflect on what a tremendous blessing “Your Love,” was.
“Place me like a seal over you heart, like a seal on your arm;
for love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave.
It burns like blazing fire, like a mighty flame. Many waters cannot quench love;
rivers cannot wash it away. If one were to give all wealth of his house for love,
it would be utterly scorned.”
Song of Songs 8:6-7
Okay, now I cannot leave you with just that. It would be like a doctor diagnosing an aliment then letting you go without prescribing anything! My prescription for those that are grieving, is a big dose of your love affair with God! This is not something that is an attempt to cover up the ache, just refocus and funnel your love into Him! Rekindle your love with the One who chases after you and sings over you..catches your tears and loves you exactly how you are! Hopefully it will take you away to another place….
Here is a song I just wrote. I pray that it will help remind you of how God pursues you in His undying love and how in this relationship He has given ALL that He has for you, the very best..His very own Son! And also, how He daily flirts with you and sends you love notes through His creation and the blessings around you. I hope it will have the same affect on you as apoem. God bless you and Happy Valentine’s Day.
You started courting me before time
And still pursue me with such passion
collect my tears, cast out my fears
There’s nothing to compare
Your desire to walk this life with me
What a picture of
Your Perfect Love, Your Perfect Love
You paid sin’s price
With Christ the ultimate sacrifice
You are the author of
Perfect Love, Perfect Love
And Oh, how Your love speaks through
The Mountains as they kiss the sky
After the summer rain dances by
Felt in a sunset’s radiant breeze
Your Spirit fills the air
With Your Perfect Love, Perfect Love
Daily your love embraces me
In the warmth of my child’s touch
And resonates through her carefree smile
In that moment Your intimacy reaches me
And I lift my voice in praise
Singing of ….Your Perfect Love, Your Perfect Love
