During various trials and situations in our life, we sometimes need to be reminded of God’s love for us. During this season of love in the month of February, some of us can feel lonely or start comparing our love lives with others.
As I was reading through some blogs during my lunch break, I stumbled upon a Love List listed on True woman’s website. On this list were some verses about how God feels about his children.
So instead of entertaining those thoughts that can lead to negative emotions of, jealousy, discouragement, or sadness; pop out this list and be reminded of God: the author of Love, and be reminded of his love for us.

Our emotions and thoughts can get the best of us sometimes, but aren’t we glad we know that we are loved by a great God? “By this we shall know that we are of the truth and reassure our heart before Him; for whenever our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and He knows everything.” (1 John 3:19–20)
