Every year in America, billions of dollars are spent on Valentine’s Day to express love to that special someone. I remember being in high school and watching the girls going to the office to claim the flowers that their prized stud muffin had saved his lawn mowing money to buy. Just for her to parade them around the cafeteria to show how adored she was, leaving us “un-loved “ peasants to grovel among each other about how we didn’t want flowers anyway.
The whole time, in our hearts, we were actually questioning, “Are we worthy of someone to love us like that too?’ Where’s our knight in shining armor to rescue us and parade us through the Kingdom crowning us with our “You are Loved” tiaras? Maybe you are still waiting for that man in your life.
My earthly knight in shining armor came just that summer. And I am married to him now. That man makes me feel like I am the queen of the castle daily. But, if I expect him to rescue me and I fall into the trap of believing I need him to make me feel like a worthy princess, then ladies, the road gets rockier here than a carriage trying to get home from the ball while the wheels are turning back into pumpkins!
So who is this real-life Valentine? The ONE who is standing right in front of us every second, holding a huge Love Letter that says “BE MINE” on the cover, and on every page? The one holding the flowers that will never wilt? I pray through this bible study, you will “experience His love, though it is so great you will never fully understand it.”
“And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.”
Ephesians 3:18-19 NLT
Even though it cannot be measured, let’s get a better idea…
about just how WIDE, LONG, DEEP, and HIGH it really is.
I wrote this study last year as a printable Ebook, now and it is available in the beautiful paperback form! Once you receive the book, you can sign up for daily emails from me to guide you through this prayer journaling study. If you have it from last year I’d love for you to go through it again, simply sign up for the email list which will be available on Monday. I hope you’ll join me in this journey of praying through God’s amazing love.
