Keep your head up, my love
I don’t blame ya’ dear for running like you did,
all these years.
I would do the same, you best believe
and the highway signs say we‘re closed,
but I don’t read those things anymore
I never trusted my own eyes
– From the song, “Stubborn Love” by the Lumineers
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36 As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.” 37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 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 8:35-39, TNIV
I’m not sure where you are as you read this blog. But I want to share OUTSTANDING news: God is madly in love with you. This Love is stubborn and pursues you no matter where you are in life at this moment. Feel the embrace of this Love. You have a God who does not close the door on you. A God who understands you, even if you cannot understand this God. A God who says “yes” to you, even if you say “no” to the Life that is yours in Jesus. A God who created YOU out of Love, a God who redeemed YOU out of Love, and a God who carries YOU out of love!
