How God Loves Us

Oh - How God loves us. I am reminded today of an example of the power of His love.
During his last week on earth, David said to me "I need to confess something to you that may change your love for me." I simply looked at him and said, "If God is prompting you to confess something, just do it." He talked about something he did as a young man that "bothered" him. Before he finished, the nurse walked in and we went back into the "hospital mode". Thoughts of anything he said were gone.
That means I never got a chance to say to him "No matter what you ever confess - no matter what you have ever done - NOTHING can change how much I love you - NOTHING!"
"Can anything separate us from the love of Christ?"
I understand that love of Christ - just a little more - when I think that the enemy wanted David to believe that something could affect my love for him.
In fact, I think his confession gave me even more love for him because I shared in his humanness - and anything that he did or tried to do on earth only strengthens how wonderful God is to give us - by the grace we receive with forgiveness - freedom from our humanness and sin.
Is there anything that can separate us from the love of Christ?
I believe it can only be strengthened as we admit our humanness, ask forgiveness and walk in His gift of freedom.
God bless you with a free day!
Love, ME
