One my favorite sections in the Bible is Romans 8:31-39, but especially the last two verses where Paul says,
“And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow - not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below - indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Citizen Way’s song, “Nothing Ever (Could Separate Us)” is based on those verses, and the intensity and joy of the song sounds how I picture Paul speaking those words - loud, booming, passionate, and declaring the truth of God’s love for each one of us. Read those verses again, and instead of using the words “us” or “our,” substitute “me” and “my.” Make those verses personal. When disappointments start messing with your mind, remind yourself of the true words Paul declared: Nothing could every separate you from God’s love. Nothing. Nada. Not a single thing.
