Good morning again! Your friendly neighborhood blogger is here with another message for you today. I don’t know about all of you (and I preface this with saying there are others out there that have had it alot worse than me this week) but this past week was about one of the worst ones I have had in a very long time; let me spell it out for you..
I got this stupid bug that is going around; the company I work for had to make some very difficult decisions so saying the mood was somber would be an understatement; as a result of my hip replacement my knee is healing alot slower than I thought it would so walking is difficult; I have some family members that are going through some personal hell of their own, and the list goes on but you get the picture.
Now that I have you totally depressed; here is the punchline if you will….
With ALL of this going on, I am still here and you want to know why? Look at the above verse I put up today. “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?” Meaning simply that there is nothing or no one in all of existence that can take away the love Jesus Christ has for us. NOTHING. Once you have TRULY given your life to Him and strive every day to become more like Him, He is there with you forever….
THAT is what has kept me upright this week. The idea that someone as wretched as me, with all my faults, can be loved no matter what is enough to keep me getting out of that bed each day and hoping for a better one. Not only that but KNOWING that one day I will be in Paradise with the One that provides that love.
Friends, have you had a rough week? Maybe you have had a rough year or couple of years; heck maybe your whole life seems to be one big train wreck that keeps looping over and over. I give you Good News! God’s love for you today is more powerful than ALL of that combined! It is the very fiber that holds the Universe together and yet at the same time gives you purpose and comfort and eternal salvation all rolled into one.
Look to Him today, God is a gentleman and will never force Himself onto you. His love is waiting; are you ready? Have a great Saturday friends!
Faith, Love, and Grace,
