Happy weekend to you! Hope you have time to get refreshed! I cleaned the apartment this morning and also wrote letters and studied. Had another answer to prayer this morning and you will hear about it tomorrow.
Devotions from Judy’s heart
God loves us from the cradle to the grave, but even more than that from the time of our conception through all eternity. Nothing, absolutely nothing can get between us and God’s love! I read the familiar passage today from Romans 6:38-39 (God’s Word), “I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love which Christ Jesus our Lord shows us. We can’t be separated by death or life, by angels or rulers, by anything in the present or anything in the future, by forces or powers in the world above or in the world below, or anything else in creation.”
Yesterday at our Bible Study here at the apartments, we recognized God’s powerful love in all phases of life. One person shared how one of the men in Teen Challenge came to see them with his new baby. God had set this young man free and now he was experiencing God’s love in the gift of his precious baby.
Another man came in late, again from his Doctor appointment and was told the good news that his colonoscopy showed he didn’t have cancer in his colon after all. There was clapping and much praising of the Lord as God’s love was expressed in healing.
Another woman showed up just as we were ready to close the Bible study and with tears in her eyes, said that her sister died just a few minutes before. Her sister knew the Lord and God in His love took her home to be with Him for all eternity. We prayed for our friend and for all the others who would miss her presence on earth. In that short hour of Bible Study, God’s love was evidenced in each circumstance of life. Let us never think that we can be lost to His love, not even in sickness, or persecution, or death. The Lord is with us to the end and we are secure in His love that knows no bounds.
Challenge for today: Thank the Lord for His love and live in the awareness that His love never runs out.
Blessings on your weekend and prayers and love, Judy
