How To Survive Valentine’s Day as a Single Girl

Reading Time: 6 minutes

IT’S THAT TIME OF year again. Red hearts full of chocolate are everywhere. It seems your Instagram feed is just pictures of huge bouquets of flowers bought by someone’s significant other. Facebook is no better! Cute, mushy couple pictures galore! Now here you are sitting at home by yourself, all alone on Valentine’s day.

So how in the world, during a holiday focused around loving and giving and hugs and kisses, are you supposed to survive all by your single self? While all your friends are out with their boyfriends, remember these things, and hate Valentine’s Day no more!

  1. Remember the relationships you do have. Almost everyone thinks Valentine’s day is just about boy-girl relationships. I think that Valentine’s is a wonderful day to celebrate all of those you love! Each year I have so much fun making, printing, or buying Valentine’s cards for all my classmates. Also Valentine’s parties are so fun and cute. There are so many clever and memorable ways you can celebrate Valentine’s day and show love and appreciation to those around you. So if you’re tempted to spend the day crying over a huge bowl of chocolate ice cream because you’re single and thinking no one will ever love you (Ashley wrote a great article about that, called Waiting for the Right One), don’t forget about the people all around you that love you now and you love too. Apostle Paul writes, “Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content” (Philippians 4:11 KJV). Even though we live in a world that tells us we have to be in a relationship to be happy or content, Christian girls can be happy and content with or without a boyfriend.

Don’t let the devil trick you into thinking your worth is measured by the amount of guys that like your Instagram post or how many guys ask for your number. We are formed and made by the King of Kings. We are chosen and called by a God who is the very definition of love.

  1. Remember your worth is not based on your relationship status. Many of us have bought into Satan’s awful lies that our value is based on the amount of attention we do or do not receive from the opposite sex. God’s Word couldn’t disagree more! “Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him” (Isaiah 43:7 KJV). Think about that for a second. The creator of the universe, who simply spoke the world into existence. He knows the name of every single star, even though there are billions! He has formed you, made you and called you by name. Say this with me: The Creator of the universe has formed me, made me, and called me. I am valuable in his sight and I live to give glory to Him. Don’t let the devil trick you into thinking your worth is measured by the amount of guys that like your Instagram post or how many guys ask for your number. We are formed and made by the King of Kings. We are chosen and called by a God who is the very definition of love.
  2. Remember God’s love for you. I am confident the gift of the cross is the greatest Valentine’s gift ever! We don’t have to wait for Valentine’s to receive this amazing gift either. It’s available all year around. I think most of us know this verse but it’s a great reminder of God’s Gift. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16 KJV).

feb 14 marked on calendarSo with or without a boy giving you a huge box of chocolates that say “Be Mine” or a dozen red roses, you can have a personal relationship with a man who died for you. It’s time to stop being so caught up in looking for a knight in shining armor to come save us, that we forget about the King who gave his life already.

I hope that reading this helped you realize that one holiday focused around love isn’t a time to be sad and feel lonely, but a time to rejoice in the wonderful life you have, recognize your true value, and remember your Savior.

Really this isn’t my list. All three of those “tips” for surviving Valentine’s Day came straight from the Bible. I encourage you to do more study in God’s word about giving thanks and being content, your value and worth in God’s eyes, and God’s matchless love.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
