My Valentine's Day Reminder for Girls

11:04 AM Posted by ask me No comments
Pictures of ladies posing with the flowers and chocolates they received are everywhere -- Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. Even the streets are full of couples and vendors selling flowers and balloons. Indeed, it's inevitable for anyone to feel the Valentine's day.

Every princess has her own prince. As teenagers, it's quite irresistible for us to long for someone who'll give us stuff like what couples give to each other on Valentine's day. Moreover, we long for someone who will love us for who we are not for what we do or how we look -- someone who will love us unconditionally.

My previous February 14s are no different from this year. I always anticipate this season, waiting for something(someone) that(who) would surprise me. But then, I realized that it is really possible for us to miss the Person who loves us just because we choose to ignore and focus on what we want. We may say, "Yeah, I know that God loves me and all, but it's different when it comes from my crush." Familiarity, it is.

God gave his one and only son for us to be given that chance to live with Him eternally. Sending His Son down on earth for him to receive the punishment we deserve. Jesus shed his blood on the cross for us. He could have said no, but he chose to say yes. That's when you know that you are valuable. You are so valuable that you just don't give yourself to anyone. Jesus hanging on the cross is indeed the best public display of affection. No man could ever outdo that act of selfless and unconditional love. Through Jesus, you are loved, forgiven, cleansed, and accepted. In Him you have Identity -- you are the princesses of the Almighty King.

There's nothing we should be in hurry of. Whatever season you are in right now, just enjoy and learn from it. Every season serves as a preparation for the next. As for students, enjoy the student life. Build relationships, study hard and prepare for your future. There'd be a lot of time for that relationship after you graduate.

"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:" (Ecclesiastess 3:1)

With that, I leave you a very short mix which is composed of my favorite Christian songs. Enjoy!!
