“And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death, nor live, neither angels or demons, neither our fears for today, nor our worries about tomorrow, not even the powers from hell can separate u from God. 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.”~ Romans 8:38-39
Heavenly Father, I love the fact that NOTHING can separate us from Your love. What a wonderful and amazing promise that You have given us! I don’t think anyone on this earth could give us such a hefty promise. We all have been abandoned in some form or another – whether it is literal abandonment or even emotional abandonment – it’s not a good feeling to be alone. Lord, there are many people who feel alone right now – maybe their spouse had left or a relationship or friendship ended or maybe they’ve lost a loved one or that they’ve moved far away from friends/family. Either way, being alone or at least feeling alone is probably one of the worst feelings in the world. So for You to promise that You’d NEVER leave us nor forsake us is a HUGE promise and we need to lean on that more than we do. The perception of being alone is so very deceiving because it’s really that we’ve walked away vs. the other way around. When we don’t feel God’s love or feel that He is far away – it’s not that He has left or turned away, but it is we that need to turn back to God. He is exactly in the same place and will always be there with open arms and we need to seek His face when we feel alone. Only God can fill that void – no other earthly thing can truly fulfill the emptiness in our hearts because all else is temporary. I pray that when we feel abandoned, that we turn to You for comfort and love. That we stop chasing things of this world to fill that void temporarily because it will never be enough. No amount of money, or a huge house, or a nice car, or a good job, or a relationship with a spouse or boyfriend/girlfriend will ever truly make us whole. You’re the only One that can ‘complete us’. In Jesus name Amen!
Jesus is a safe harbor
I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him.
If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32.
He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips.
I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS!
I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE!
