A Valentine Tea Party
Here we are, Lord!
Look at us!
We prettied ourselves up for we are meeting with our Lover!
You, dear Jesus, are the one who loves us from forever.
In You, we have confidence and assurance for You, Lord, are faithful!
Whom do we have in heaven, but You?
And earth has nothing we desire besides You.
Our flesh and our hearts may fail,
But Jesus You are the strength of our hearts and our portion forever!
Enlighten the eyes of our hearts to understand the depth of Your love.
Today, Oh Lord, help us to be able to grasp how wide and how deep is your love for us, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge- that we be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God!
Jesus, You have demonstrated Your love for us in this: while we were still sinners, You died for us. Because of Your love, Jesus, I know now that I have been chosen; I have been forgiven, redeemed, adopted, purchased and paid for by Your precious blood.
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?
Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?
No! In all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loves us.
For we are convinced that neither death nor life,
Neither angels nor demons,
Neither the present nor the future,
Nor any powers,
Neither height nor depth,
Nor anything else in all creation,
Will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord!
You, Lord, are faithful.
You know me well and understand me.
You know the condition of my heart and you care for me.
You will never leave me nor forsake me.
You, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.
Praise the Lord!
For great is His love toward us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever.
Greater love has no one than this:
That You would lay down Your life for such as us.
I am grateful dear Jesus!
I love you, Jesus, for You first loved me!
Because of You, I have become the daughter of the King of Kings!
I am a new creation.
I am God’s masterpiece.
I praise You for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
My body is the temple of the Holy Spirit.
I am an heir of God’s glory.
I am blessed with every spiritual blessing.
If God is for me, who can be against me?
I am loved by my Maker.
For my Maker is my husband- the Lord Almighty is His name- the Holy One of Israel is my Redeemer.
He is called the God of all the earth.
Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever, Amen!
