Not Feeling the Love

More than a billion Valentine’s Day cards are exchanged each year. And yet a lot of moms aren’t feeling the love. Sadly, love is a quality often misunderstood. It’s easy to confuse it with a physical desire for your spouse or a lavish covering of praise by your children or friends. Yet those versions can occur without any feelings of real love or affection. God’s kind of love is as different as day is from night. God’s kind of love isn’t selfish, conditional, or self-gratifying—it’s directed toward others. The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 13:8 that “love never fails.” But loving requires an act of the will. A choice to love your neighbor, your husband, your children, your enemies. Examine your heart. Is there ample evidence of God’s love?

Lord, I must be honest. Sometimes I don’t feel loved. And I base my worth on false versions of what love is. Grant me a giver’s heart so that I love others without conditions or expectation… beginning right under my own roof. Grant me Your heart, Lord.
