blessed

I am blessed.  

That is the focus of this post.  I could spend this entire post telling you about the chaotic turn my life has taken lately, but that wouldn't do any of us any good.

The truth is that no matter what is going on in my life, those circumstances cannot separate me from the Father who loves me unconditionally.

For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.  Romans 8:38-39

As far as I can tell, these two verses pretty much cover anything that might come my way and if none of these things can separate me from the love of God, what can I possibly fear?

This song is the title of the musical our choir will be presenting on Sunday morning and it is also one of my all time favorite hymns.  I had always liked it, but a few years ago Mama told me that it is one of her favorite and one of the songs she wants sung at her funeral.  That comment caused me to listen even closer to the words and really think about what they mean.  I hope you'll do the same.

Because He lives I can face tomorrow...
