Easter, God's Love, Relating to God, Trusting God

Access Granted

 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from his love. Death can’t, and life can’t. The angels can’t, and the demons can’t. Our fears for today, our worries about tomorrow, and even the powers of hell can’t keep God’s love away. Whether we are high above the sky or in the deepest ocean, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.”  Romans 8:38-39 (NLT)

The Resurrection holiday commemorates the most unparalleled and powerful intervention ever in life.  Just the thought brings to my mind so many things to be thankful for.  Among them, I appreciate most the opportunity to have a relationship with my Savior.  Words always seem to fail me here…when it comes to expressing how I feel, they just don’t cut it.  But if I could sum up my experience w/Him in a few words, it would look like this:  Where I’ve overcrowded the canvas of my life with the illegible scribbles and scratches of my sin, God washed it clean with the shedding of His precious blood.  Then as I surrendered my slate to Him, He began to unlock His will for my life in the form of a beautiful masterpiece.  Even as His work of art has already been completed, He promised to ALWAYS be with me.  Uninterrupted connection…unlimited access.  That’s what His blood did for me.  His amazing-ness is mind-blowing ß And that’s an understatement.  I don’t just love God…I love the WAY He loved and continues to love me.  He took my place, conquered death and forever closed the gap between us…No greater LOVE, indeed. #humbled
