Nothing Can Separate Us

Have you ever had a really close relationship with someone, but then over time found that you aren't as close as you used to be?  The phone calls and text messages aren't as frequent as they once were, and pretty soon they end altogether. The quality time you usually set aside for one another is now occupied by other things or people.  The laughs you used to share turn into awkward silence.  The person you once knew so well becomes a total stranger.

You wonder what happened?  Who changed?  What went wrong?  Sometimes you can't find those answers.  All you know is that the love that was once there is now gone.

I've experienced quite a bit of separation in 2011, and I must admit that it hasn't been the best feeling.  When you love people, and for whatever reason, you end up parting ways, it kinda hurts your heart.  Though I may not totally understand why the Lord chose to remove those people from my life, I do know that He knows what and who are best for me.  I have learned to accept the fact that sometimes separating from people is necessary.

But you know what?  I am thankful that, no matter how many people have been removed from my life, there is absolutely nothing that can separate me from the love of God.

"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

The Message Bible says it like this - "I'm absolutely convinced that nothing—nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable—absolutely nothing can get between us and God's love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us."

Isn't that awesome?

No matter what, God says He's not going anywhere.  His love will always remain, and nothing or no one will come between us.  We never have to wonder how long He's going to stick around, or if His love will wax cold.

"...and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen." Matthew 28:20

How great is that?

~May you live in His love.~

  1. What a blessing it is to know that no matter what God will always LOVE me... I've been going through a rough patch in my life where people I thought were my friends I found out really are not and I won't be spending the rest of my life with the man I thought that I would be. Through it all God IS GOOD. Thank you for this word!


I appreciate your comment. Peace and Blessings to you!
