neither height, nor depth, nor Harvey can separate us from the love of God

for I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor messengers, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things about to be, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. Rom. 8:38-39

The flood waters cannot get high enough to separate us from the love of God. Destruction, lack of help, loss of health or resources or home or even loved ones is not an indicator of God’s abandonment or lack of love. Indeed the heart of God is to heal, to help, to restore. Sometimes big emergencies are the times when we hear His heartbeat the loudest and tap into its rhythm. Standing in the sunshine on a beautiful, I’m reminded that just a few miles south there are not. And yet God loves them just as much as He loves me.

Lord thank you for all Your hands and feet on the ground and in the water helping and healing.
