Known & Loved: A Playlist for Singles

So Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and you are single.

Be honest, you read that like it’s a bad thing. I get it, it’s hard to rejoice in being single when the February buzz is all about being in a relationship and having someone special to celebrate with in time for the 14th. I’m there with you. At this time of year, it is all too easy to be deceived that the only kind of love that exists is a romantic love and that the only way you can partake in the upcoming holiday is to have a hot date lined up. Well listen up, because I am here to tell you that this is so far from the truth! Let’s change our focus and the way we are thinking about these next couple of days. Instead of fixating on a desired relationship with a person, let’s rejoice in the love that is available to us always, God’s love.

He is pursuing us and desiring us always.

Truly, the best way we can spend today and every day is to set our thoughts and attention fully on God’s great love for us and from there, returning that love back to Him in glory and praise. This practice will not only have us rejoicing, but also feeling most complete because He loves us infinitely more than any one person ever could. With our focus on God’s love, perhaps we can be less narrow in seeking that one special person fitting for the season and have our eyes opened to ALL the people in our lives God has entrusted to us to love as He loves this Valentines Day and every day moving forward.

Finally, please know of my prayers for you in recognizing God’s great love for you. Know of my prayers for the person God is preparing you for, if called to marriage. Know of my prayers for the many people He is putting in your path today to love.

I hope my playlist allows you to wind down and bask in the perfect love we are all called to, God’s love.

I am a beloved daughter of God who knows her great worth in the eyes of the Father. I have the pleasure of being a graphic designer for Life Teen and am perpetually in awe that God would allow me the freedom to use my creative gifts everyday to bring Him greater glory. I own more clip-on earrings than your grandma and take delight in adorning myself with old medals and vintage finds. I wear mostly black, but also mostly smiles as to outshine the darkness of my wardrobe. I am sometimes sassy, but mostly sweet. My special devotion to our Blessed Mother keeps me on the straight and narrow. Everyday, by God’s grace and Mary’s guidance, I’m striving to make moves onward and upward to that heavenly Kingdom.
