There is One who knows your heart inside and out, and knows exactly how to fill it with joy when nothing else satisfies. He is God. He also understands a broken heart, a lonely heart, and an empty heart. God can meet your emotional needs because He knows you intimately and invites you to pour out your heart before Him (Psalm 62:8).

If you are dreading Valentine’s Day you are not alone.
Every year I talk with women, read loads of emails, and even receive hand-written letters from women who are lonely in love, disappointed from unmet expectations, or simply tired of the loneliness they feel on a day designed to celebrate love.

Whether you’re single, married, divorced, or widowed, you may feel like a woman who walks alone. But there is One who knows your heart inside and out, and knows exactly how to fill it with joy when nothing else satisfies.
Sometime around 270 A.D., the Roman Emperor Claudius II outlawed marriage because he believed single men made better soldiers. St. Valentine defied this order and continued to marry Christian couples in secret.
St. Valentine may have been two different people. One St. Valentine was beheaded near Rome by the emperor for performing Christian marriages, while another was the Bishop of Terni, who was also martyred by Claudius II.
There was also a female St. Valentine, or St. Valentina as she's now remembered, was martyred for her faith in 308 A.D., along with another saint named Thea.
Many recognised St. Valentine as the patron saint of courtship and marriage, but Catholic tradition also considers him the saint of beekeeping and travel.
In the early 1800's an excavation in a catacomb near Rome produced several bones and relics thought to belong to St. Valentine. Currently, the flower adorned skull of St. Valentine can be seen on display in the Basilica of Santa Maria in Cosmedio, Rome.

Scripture tells us Jesus our High Priest is one who can sympathize with our weaknesses (Hebrews 4:15). Not only can He help us when we are being tempted because He was tempted too, but He can relate to our sorrows because He lived life on this earth, as well. And because He is God and knows us inside out (Psalm 139), I believe He also understands a broken heart, a lonely heart, and an empty heart.

So take heart. You have a God who can meet your emotional needs because He knows you intimately and invites you to pour out your heart before Him (Psalm 62:8).
Like everyone else, I have precious memories. I have the tears that were born secret and that secret remained over time. I smile secretly to someone with hope and desire but now all is stolen mercilessly. I have pain and anger hidden in a corner of the soul that often comes to light, giving voice to a side of my plight. I am so tired. I have dreams and hopes for your heart. I want to tell you, but fear often holds me back. I need to evaluate many of the things that often escape my soul and heart - one of them is love.

Here is a “pour it out” prayer for the lonely on Valentine’s Day. Say it from your heart and share it with someone who needs to know she is loved.
Lord God, You are the Creator of love and the Author of romance. It was all Your idea in the first place. And therefore, You understand more than anyone else when I feel I am lacking in what others seem to have in abundance.

Thank You that You understand the deep desire of my heart for companionship, emotional fulfillment, and physical and emotional intimacy. You made me with a desire to be fully known and loved by another. Help me to see that You know me fully, and understand me more than any other. Comfort me with that assurance on the days when I wish I had someone physically – or emotionally – close to me.

PHOTO: "Light is sweet, and it pleases the eyes to see the sun." (Ecclesiastes 11:7). Remember the warning of Your Creator While Young. Remember the laws of Your Creator while the going is good. Sinful pleasures are harmful causing many days of sorrow and anxiety. Chasing after such pleasures is meaningless. (Ecclesiastes 11:8).

Even though You, Lord, can at any time change my circumstances in order to fill the void in my heart, for some reason You have chosen not to. Help me to trust You with what You are withholding from me, perhaps so I will draw closer to You and rely on You more for what I need (Psalm 84:11). Help me to trust You during the times that your “no” is protecting me from what I don’t yet see. Help me to hold onto hope that You really do have my best in mind and Your wisdom is far above mine.

On this day that so many celebrate love, help me to celebrate Your love for me, with a deep knowledge that You love me more than any person on this earth ever will. Help me to find joy in that as I wait for Your best for me. Help me to see Your love for me in every flower that blooms, feel it in every warm ray of sunshine, hear it in every pure and right love song, and experience it in every good and perfect gift I receive (James 1:17).
Thank You that You have searched me and You know me (Psalm 139:1) and that nothing is hidden from You.

Lord, I love that You know all about me. And when You see desires of mine that are not fully in line with Yours, You do not toss me aside. You, instead, send friends my way to love me back to You. You send songs my way that remind me of where I need to be in my relationship with You. You send words my way that remind me that You are the One who opens Your hand and satisfies the desire of every living thing (Psalm 145:16). Lord, take any longing that lies within me that is unhealthy and replace it with a stronger desire for You. And because You tell me to “come boldly to the throne of grace” (Hebrews 4:16, NKJV) and tell You all that is on my heart, I will not try to hide anything from You. I want to experience intimacy with You the way an honest, transparent love relationship was meant to be experienced.
Thank You, Lord, that You see it all and You love me just the same.

It's not that I always want to dream, but it is the dreams which took possession of me. - Joe Martini
“All my longings lie open before You, O Lord; my sighing is not hidden from you” (Psalm 38:9). You know what I long for and what disappoints me. Comfort me on those days when I feel disappointed and hurt by what this world has to offer. Help me to remember that You are the only Perfect Love and the One I must keep my eyes upon. Thank You for Your demonstration of sacrificial love for me and remind me that no one on earth could express that kind of love toward me. You truly are the One I must seek above any other.

May the prayer of the Psalmist be mine today:
“Satisfy [me] in the morning with your unfailing love, that [I] may sing for joy and be glad all [my] days” (Psalm 90:14).
PHOTO: "Dear Lord, Thank you for loving us. Despite our insecurity and imperfections, You deems us worthy of Your love. Please help us to see Jesus as altogether lovely, wonderful, beautiful and radiant, and tell others how wonderful He is, so that others will want to know Jesus too. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen!"
