‘If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all – how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against those who, God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died – more than that, was was raised to life – is at the right hand of God who is also interceding for us.
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written:
“For your sake we face death all day long:
we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 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.’
– Romans 8:31-39

Thank you that your love for me is not conditioned on my love for you. Thank you that you say there is nothing that can separate me from your love. Thank you that love is more than just a feeling, it is a choice – an action. You know that I am struggling to feel love for You. You know that I am struggling to choose to love You. Please help me Lord to trust you. Help me to be still and rest in your everlasting & unchanging love for me.
