"For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8:38,39
Well...I believe that covers it. Don't you?
Thank goodness we serve a Holy God. He Is All. He Knows All. He is in control of All. It goes back to the scripture in John 10:27,28, "neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand." God was speaking...He said that...and He meant it.
Amazing love, how can it be
That You, my King, would die for me?
Amazing love, I know it's true
It's my joy to honor You
In all I do, to honor You.
Girls, don't you feel so protected, so loved? As christians, we are safe and secure in our Father's arms. That gives me such a warm and safe feeling. We are adored and cherished and sought after. He longs to abide with us and patiently waits for the invitation. He desires to be a part of our every moment but will not push Himself on us.
Let's be the welcoming committee for our Lord. Start each morning, as soon as you become conscious of the new day, while your still laying in bed, before you open your eyes to say, "Good morning, Lord."
We are sinners first, but we thankfully are saved by His grace and are allowed to have an open, one-on-one relationship with Him. That doesn't mean we'll be cruising down easy street from here on out. There will be pain and suffering; sickness and disease; death and heartache. But gosh, I would rather live in this world with Him (and face my struggles) than (face those same struggles) without Him. We have a hope (Jer.29:11) and a promise (1Chr.16:15) that the world does not offer. We can have confidence in knowing that this is not our forever home. Our palace awaits us! We are daughters of the King! That makes us a princess.
So...straighten your crowns girls, our Father awaits!
I love you & He loves you more!
Lord, May we bask in Your unconditional love and be confident in it. May we honor You in all we do. Your love is amazing! Remind us of where our joy comes from when this life is overwhelming us. Amen.
