This Valentine's Day Are You Seeking Grace? (Emunah La-Paz Defines You)

Introduction:

According to history St. Valentine's Day began as a liturgical celebration of one or more early Christian saints named Valentinus. Many stories surround the true meaning of Valentine's day.

But in reality, what does Valentine's Day mean to you? To most of us it's a time to receive candy and flowers from our significant others. And for some, Valentine's Day seems to mock the awareness of being single.

This article is about how to seek grace on Valentine's Day.

Yet, after the romance is over and the flowers have wilted away. Most of us still feel empty. Deep down inside we know there is a void that goes beyond candy and flowers. The compassion expressed by our significant other seems to fall short.

The Void Many Of Us Feel Is Real.

The void in which many face is real. What are we seeking in this life? Some may say if I only had a child, or a better job, or loving spouse, then maybe I'll be complete.

If this is so, then what about the man or woman that has it all? Why do people who have everything seem to be searching for something beyond this world?

Can something as simple as the word GRACE shed light on a void which feels so ominous?

  • The definition of grace can be described as poise and elegance,but is this the kind of grace that we are in search of?
  • Free and unmerited favor is the kind of GRACE, that we all desire.

Seeking grace beyond a human standpoint is key. Through my personal relationship I am able to seek peace through prayer. What makes your relationship with God favorable is the ability to seek after Him the way you see fit.

Grace is an honor that in which many of us do not deserve. Through our seeking a deeper relationship is formed. Similar to a friendship.

Women have more personal, growing friendships. Women have the ability to nurture their relationships with other women.

Research reveal that women live longer due to their support system. In regards to men, they tend to bond with only one good friend.

Studies show that social relationships are good for your well-being. Without social attachments, depression takes its toll.

Seeking a relationship of a higher power launches health and success.

Faithful ancient history reveals that men such as David and his son Solomon were able to obtain great achievements through their personal relationship with God. David's passion to seek God, made him Man after God's own heart.

Solomon became depressed when his personal relationship with God took a dark turn, in which he began to view life through a meaningless outlet.

How we choose to seek His Grace on Valentine's day or any other day is vital.

The value that a personal relationship with God adds to your life, is priceless.

God knows how everyone else feels, He is patiently waiting to hear from YOU.

Pastor Williams Seeks His Grace Through Song.

Pastor Williams seeks His Grace through faithful songs and by building a personal relationship. 'Knowing God for yourself is very important' He shares. "Once you have the desire to seek Him personally a relationship will form."

Faith Of Peace.

You are so right. Gratitude is so important, and God has revealed to us in His word how much He dislikes grumbling and complaining at His provision. I loved the line about leaving the window open to receive grace. Lovely. :)
