Sad. There is no other way to explain it. Just sad.
There have been times over the past couple of months when I have wanted to climb back in bed, pull the covers up over my head and just stay there. I would guess that there are days when you have felt this way too; I’m sure I am not alone.
Guild then creeps in, “Why are you sad? You have so much to be thankful for; focus on those things and begin to praise God.” My mind begins to remind my heart of what I know to be true. Yet sometimes it’s easier said than done…
On hard days, I must remind myself although I change; my heart and mind swing back and forth on the emotional pendulum, Jesus’ love for me doesn’t. It is constant and stable.
Romans 8:38,39 encourages me “For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” NIV
Friend, whatever is in your life: a child running from God, a marriage that isn’t what you want it to be or a job that you don’t know if it will be there tomorrow, nothing can separate us from His love. Life may throw us the worst of the worst, but He will still be there, loving us and helping us through.
