Even When I Don't Feel It
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? ... 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 8:35, 38-39
In my previous blog, I was very transparent about my journey dealing with the affects of abuse in day to day life and I intend to continue to do so. That being said, this is a difficult time for me as my depression is having a field day with my heart. As much as I love people and even more so my friends, I struggle greatly with isolation. Does this resonate with you? If so, the above verses should cause you to take heart as they do me. There is NOTHING that can separate me from my Lord. When I feel so alone, in truth I am not. When I feel unlovable, the fact is that I am loved. When I feel hopeless, in reality I am not without hope. We must cling to the truths in the Word instead of listening to the whispers of the enemy. And even though I am experiencing great struggles right now, in the depths of my heart I know that the above words are the real truth of my life.
