Nothing: Listen: Prayers and Poetry

Reading: Romans 8:35

“Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will hardship, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?”

Nothing will. No one can. Not ever. Not even ourselves.

Though all of these things bring dread and distress they cannot break the bonds Christ has given us. His Presence in all circumstances. His ongoing mercy, grace, and forgiveness. His sacrifice.

He doesn’t let go of us but too often the circumstances so overwhelm us we forget. We turn our sight away from trust and faith and allow fear to weaken us even deeper than the trial we face. Because we think we have been abandoned, or forgotten, or maybe being punished.

Yet that is when He holds us even closer—even if He is silent.

His mercy carries us through any form of death or loss. Into new beginnings. Into new life. And when the time comes—into eternity.

Lord, thank you that nothing can separate You from us or us from You. Please do not let us ever forget this promise.

Psalm of Worship: Proverbs 8:34

“Happy is the one who listens to me, watching daily at my gates, waiting beside my doors.”
