Nothing

From the Heart

Louise Gibson

And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us
from God’s love. Neither death, nor life, neither angels
or demons, neither our fears for today, nor our worries about
tomorrow–not even the powers of hell can separate us from
God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below–
indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate
us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our
Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)

 

Isn’t it comforting to know that God loves you and will
never leave or forsake you?
God loves you because of who God is-
not because of anything you did – or didn’t do.

 

Life presents its challenges,
Of this we are all aware.
But the Lord is there throughout it all
to comfort through our despair.

 

“When they were discouraged, I smiled and that
encouraged them and lightened their spirits.”
Job 29;24 TLB

    It is the best thing in creation to know that He never leaves me. Gorgeous picture, too.

      THERE IS SUCH COMFORT IN GOD’S WORD. AND ISN’T IT GREAT TO KNOW THAT HE IS PRESENT AT EVERY READING OF IT?
      THANK YOU, DiVORAN FOR ALL OF THE BEAUTIFUL PICTURES THAT YOU POST WITH MY POEMS. THEY ADD SO MUCH.
