I’m reminded of a song that I haven’t heard in quite a while. I can’t remember the whole song but the lyrics, “Though you may run, miles away. His love will find you, miles away” keep playing on repeat in my mind.
I was planning on writing something completely different for my blog this week, but I felt led to write this.
I want to remind someone out there that no matter how far you’ve run, no matter how far you’ve fallen, His love will find you.
Whatever situation you’re in, whatever struggles you’re facing, He’s there and He still cares.
If you need proof, here it is: Romans 8:35-39
“Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death? No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. 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.”
Nothing can separate us from the overwhelming all-powerful love of God.
I want to encourage you today that you are not too far gone. You can still turn back. God will accept you. You can still fall at His feet. God still wants you. You’re not too broken. God still loves you.
Whatever it is, wherever you’ve gone — it’s not too much for God to handle. His love conquers all.
Invite God in again, and accept His love. Let it overwhelm you and give you the victory.
Remember: God is on your side. You are not alone. You will make it. Through Christ, all things are possible. Keep marching on in His great love!
