It’s the month that is all about love and hearts and you can’t go anywhere without seeing all of the red and pink that looks like it exploded all over the candy boxes, cards and stuffed bears that are bigger than small children. There is an amazing love that isn’t talked about much in February and that’s the love that God has for you. It’s so much that we can’t even begin to imagine it. There is a song that has been playing on the radio lately – Live Like
You’re Loved by Hawk Nelson that has been really working on my heart. I have included a few lyrics from the song below. I encourage you to give it a listen when you can. There is such freedom in Christ. He can set you completely free from the pain in your life and give you such amazing, unexplainable joy. God loves you just the way your are. You are enough.
Live Like You’re Loved
This perfection you’re chasing
Is just energy wasted
Cause he loves you like you are
So go ahead and live like you’re loved
It’s ok to act like you’ve been set free
His love has made you more than enough
So go ahead and act like he made you to be
Live like you’re loved, walk like you’re free
Stand like you know who he made you to be
Live like you’re loved, live like you believe
His love is all that you’ll ever need.
Family Project Idea
Work as a family to show God’s love to someone in need. Think about ideas and how you could go about helping them. Maybe you have an elderly neighbor who could use help raking her leaves, or give away some gently used winter clothes to a short-term housing center. You could collect stuffed animals and give them to projectsmile.org, or make cards to put on trays in a nursing home. There are so many different ways to help others and show them God’s love this month!
