Never Ending Love
"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
Love is a powerful word. It has the ability to make someone do things that they never thought they would do, it also strengthens the heart and gives a determination to follow someone regardless if the feelings of the other person are reciprocated. I think it's safe to say that love brings with it a set of characteristic and personality traits that have the ability to change who we are and how we treat others.
During my reading today I came across the above scripture. I’m very familiar with it, so while reading I quickly skimmed through because I knew what the scripture was going to say. But afterward I felt God tell me to go back and read it again...which I did. He told me to read it once more, but slower, and meditate on it afterwards. I listened and reread the scripture and spent about 5-7 minutes meditating on each word and declaring the scripture out loud. Although the time was brief it felt like forever! It was a beautiful reminder of God's unending love for us. It gave me an assurance that I didn't realize I needed. Regardless of what I may have done in the past or will do in the future God will never stop loving me! He doesn't have a conditional heart that changes with mood swings, words or actions. It is firm, unquestioning, unlimited and wholehearted. It is exactly all of our lives needs!
God's love is something that we all should take the time to digest every now and then! He views us more valuable than any other person or thing, we should always remember that we’re never alone and will always have someone by our side no matter what! :)
