Knowing God - Romans 8:38-39

For I am convinced that neither death nor life ... 
will be able to separate us from the love of God ...
Romans 8:38-39

Think of anything that you think may possibly separate you from God.  Can you? This verse tells us that NOTHING will separate us from the love of God.  

Sin. Purposeful giving in to temptation. Death. Life. Everything in between. 

Nothing can separate us. 

Disputes with friends. Shattered dreams. Being less than the wife, husband, mother, father, daughter, son, friend you know you should be.

Nothing can separate us.

checking in, checking out, being positive all the time, withdrawing inside yourself, reaching out to others, being included, being excluded.

Nothing can separate us.

Throwing ball with the kids, throwing rocks at the cross, cheering on your favorite team, yelling in anger at God.

Nothing can separate us.

... a gal who has done plenty
to deserve separation 
from God's love ...

I like the way you've signed it -- "a gal who's done plenty to separate herself from God's love"

I wonder ... has that been by circumstance ... or is there a little purposefulness to that ... pushing away anyone who gets too close ... protecting your heart ... not really feeling like you deserve to be loved ... I wonder ...

Speak gently. carefully. thoughtfully. graciously. humbly.
