The Love that won’t abandon us

Who separates us from the love of Christ? Can tribulation or distress or persecution or hunger or nakedness or danger or weapons. Rom. 8:35

Can internal stress or crisis (personal or global) or mean, stupid, selfish people or past traumas or present threats or economic uncertainties or disasters or sickness or terrorism or simple inconveniences and annoyances separate us from the love of Christ either? No matter what we might put on the list, though the consequences are real and painful and the hurt we feel is absolutely legitimate, none of these experiences or feelings indicate that God doesn’t love us or that He has abandoned us. God is Love, restoring, comforting Love, when we feel overwhelmed and threatened.

Lord, when crisis hits and I feel separate and alone in it help me to emotionally, intellectually, spiritually, and even physically experience the Love that You Are.
