It’s Valentine’s Day – cards, flowers and boxes of chocolates will be given to the ones that we love – which for whatever reason takes me to that infamous phrase from Forrest Gump –

“My Mama always said, life is like a box of chocolates – you never know what you’re gonna get”

Simply reading the phrase, we can hear his voice – and yes – we laugh because it came from a movie that warmed our hearts – however, when we think about it – that phrase – it’s so true in so many ways. We get up each morning, we have plans, but the truth is – we’re really unsure what the day may actually hold.

Sometimes they go as planned and sometimes they move in a completely unplanned direction – we just never know what may or may not happen in a day. Just like that box of chocolates – there are days filled with nuts and caramel, which I personally love, while others are like the ones with maple nut cream – which I don’t like a bit.

Yet. we go through them, just like our days enjoying the good ones, when wham – we’re faced with a day where tragedy strikes or difficulty comes – straight out of nowhere.

So yes, we sit the chocolates on the shelf leaving them untouched, for these kind of days – there’s no sweetness to be had.

Yet, this is where our trust kicks in – for we know, that God knows – life as it pertains to circumstances is simply uncertain for us – so He comforts us and reminds us – as many times as He has to – that He’s here for us – that He’s our constant companion – He’s our steadfast friend – and He’s our consistently loving and merciful God.

He doesn’t keep promises like we do – with Him, it doesn’t matter what chocolate we’re in the middle of right now – He’s hanging with us though any and all circumstances we may face – and because we trust in this – we can grab hold of Him with both hands as He leads us to safety – every single time.

It really is that simple – for we know that we know that we know, in our deepest being, that yes – no matter what comes our way – this faith, this confidence, and this hope that we hang on to – it’s our unbreakable spiritual lifeline.

It’s His box of chocolates and they’re the best on the shelf – they’re the sweetest and most satisfying of them all – so yes – let’s do it right – let’s binge!

We are loved by love HImself. He loves us big and He loves us strong, and yes – love wins period

Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things – Love never ends.  1Corinthians 13:7
