Spiritual Sundays

Hello friends~ Sunday is Valentine's Day, a day for sweethearts, and most of us are planning a special meal, or gift to give to our loved one to celebrate the occasion.

I have the most wonderful hubby in the world and he and I are best friends. I love him and my family very much and I am so very thankful for them. But as much as I love my hubby and my family, my heart belongs to Jesus first because I am a Christian and I am His child. I want to acknowledge Him on this special day as well.

I thought for my post today I would share the words to this song which most of us are familiar with.

I love You Lord
And I lift my voice
To worship You
Oh, my soul rejoice!
Take joy my King
In what You hear
Let it be a sweet, sweet sound in your ear.

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." - John 3:16

He gave Himself for us. So, what can we give Him to repay Him for all He has done for us? Nothing! There is nothing we can do to earn so great a gift. All we can do is accept His gift, thank Him for it, and live our lives in such a way as to bring glory to His wonderful name!

This photo has been altered of course, but I believe the heart of God is there for all of us to see, if we would only open our spiritual eyes to see it!

Thank you Charlotte and Ginger for once again hosting Spiritual Sundays. Please click on the link to visit these ladies and the other participants.

Happy Valentine's Day! The Lord bless you today and make you a blessing!
