Thankful Thursday

|

"For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8:38-39

I think it is safe to say that life is crazy for just about everyone these days! There is always so much to do... work, church activities, school activities, family activities, volunteer opportunities, and on and on.

Just as long a list comes with all there is to worry about in this world today... the economy, the upcoming elections, negative and worldly influences, drugs, alcohol, and so many more.

Isn't it such an amazing assurance to know that no matter how busy, no matter what we encounter on a daily basis that we will ALWAYS have the love of God?! God will never leave us. God will be there to help us get thru it all. God will help us to prioritize all the "busy-ness". God will help us turn away from the negative influences. God will carry our concerns about the economy. God love us and is ALWAYS with us.

Today I am just so thankful that NOTHING can separate me from the love of God!

This is my first time on thankful Thursday. I very much enjoyed your post. I have done plenty of worrying my self. But I have now found peace in knowing the worry is normally worse than the event we fear, and it last longer than the event it's self. So it is better to try to go on as normal and see if any thing happens.
Be blessed

I don't know if I heard this somewhere or just wrote it once and took the credit, but....
"God is Love" is a given. Of course God loves us..... it's how much WE LOVE GOD that makes a difference in our lives.

This thought came to me as I read your post. The more we love HIM - the more we'll have that peace.

Great encouragement!
Happy Thankful Thursday.

P.S. I want to know how you got your comments box to appear on page like this. Neato!
