  • July 11, 2014 - Reflections

    By Jean S. Horner
    The other day while walking down a corridor in a public building, I saw what appeared to be someone walking toward me. On coming closer, I found it was my own reflection in a huge mirror. For a moment it frightened me. Somehow a full-length reflection of one’s self is a startling thing. ...

February 20, 2012 - Unfailing Love

By Dorothy Rugg

“May your unfailing love rest upon us, O Lord, even as we put our hope in you” (Psalm 33:22, NIV).

I reflect often on Valentine’s Day during February because I associate it always with the love that God the Father has for me. I believe we should use every opportunity we can to share the love of Christ with those around us.

Each year, I look forward to sending out Valentine’s cards to cheer those who might be discouraged, to let some child know there is a God who loves them and is there for them, and to let my family know how special they are, not only to me but to God.

We live in a world where people too often are abandoned by those who should love them, where husbands and wives fall in and then out of love, where love is confused with lust or is compromised with selfishness. My heart breaks for those who are lonely, discouraged, forgotten, discarded, and have never felt the love and security of a family.

Perhaps you are struggling in a relationship, or feel overwhelmed and are looking for hope. God’s Word brings comfort and hope; we learn of God and His love through the Word. I once was lost and lived for myself, but Jesus came and He gave me a new heart — a heart that wants to serve Him all the days of my life, a heart that longs to see others come to know Jesus, a heart that wants to show kindness and love and patience and God’s goodness.

So, in the afterglow of another Valentine’s Day, I pray that you will come to know and understand the love of the Father, that you will reach out to Him and find that love in your heart. You can be sure of this: God truly does love you.
