What Can? Nothing.

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, 
neither angels nor demons, 
 neither the present nor the future, 
nor any powers, 
neither height nor depth,
 nor anything else in all creation, 
will be able to separate us from the love of God 
that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
-Romans 8:38-39

What, then, can separate you from His love? Can your illness? Can unpaid bills? Can quiet desperation? Can grief? Can failure? Can your loneliness?

What about your questions? Can they keep His love away? What about your past, your present, or your future? What in your life, today, can separate you from the love He's loving you with?

Nothing. Nothing can.

Nothing can.

Take heart. You, take heart. Because this thing you're facing- fighting through- working out- barely surviving- it ultimately is powerless over you or what matters. Because Jesus loves You, and He has made promises to You that He will keep.

He will keep.

What can separate you from Love Himself? Nothing.

Go in peace today.

SO... SO... true, indeed! Real love is shown by our concern to do God's will... His love is NEVER failing, NO matter the circumstance!

I lost my precious mother last August at the age of '81', we were inseparable, NOT to mention the other numerous trial/tribulations, BUT this being the GREATEST of hurts. There are ACTUALLY moments that I feel as if I can't go on, STILL today, BUT God & His love has NOT fallen by the wayside... knowing that God is good & pleasing Him has created that cocoon of comfort.

I appreciate your words of encouragement & for being honest/true to 'us' folks here!

SWEET blessings, from Kentucky!
