Bible Club: Valentine’s Day Tips

Bible Club: Valentines Day Tips

Mackenzie Pence, Assistant Editor

It’s that time of year again! Stores are selling boxes of chocolate and giant stuffed animals- the true sign that Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. For people who are involved in a relationship, this is a great time to show how much you care for your significant other! Healthy relationships are key, and having the same morals and views on conflicts are a great way to bond, and stay together as a couple.  If you’re dating someone, remember this one verse, and revolve your relationship around it’s guidelines:

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always preserves.” – 1 Corinthians 13:4

For those who have not found that special someone, it can be a really depressing time in their lives. Lots of single people experience feelings of sadness and loneliness around this holiday. In order to get around the Valentine’s Day blues, here’s some encouraging scripture you can remember to pick up your spirits!

1 Samuel 12:22– For the sake of his great name the Lord will not reject his people, because the Lord was pleased to make you his own.

If you’ve ever had a crush on someone- and don’t say you haven’t!- and they didn’t like you back, it can be really heartbreaking. It’s one of the most difficult things to go through as a teenager. Getting rejected is not easy, which is why God will never do that to you! He will never turn away and leave you on your own. He’s always there for comfort!

Psalm 147:3– He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.

This verse is very self-explanatory. If you are hurt and need someone to talk to or you need comfort, God is always there. He can help you heal your broken heart!

Psalm 139:13-14– For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.

God made you exactly the way he wanted you to be. He created you with a plan to do great things in your life! You should never think that you’ll be alone because there is something wrong with you. You were made with love by God, and he made you perfect. Yes, you may make mistakes, but who doesn’t? Nobody is perfect, so don’t worry too much about finding that perfect person! God knows exactly what will happen in your future. His plan is perfect, and whatever happens is for a reason. Trust in him, and believe that he will bring great things into your life!

So just remember, if you’re not in a relationship this Valentine’s day, don’t be upset! God has a perfect plan for you that may or may not include that special someone. Everything that happens in your life has a purpose, so don’t be discouraged! Be patient, stay happy, and trust God!
