Events during this year – 2020- have polarized America in ways I had not seen and certainly did not expect.  I won’t even list those things because … well … in reality I do not want to think about it all for a few minutes.  The above list came to mind after I read a scripture verse.  The verse reminds us of God’s faithfulness to us and his love for us, even when we are unfaithful and act in ways that are hateful.  Nothing, absolutely nothing, can separate us from God’s love.  Our attitudes and actions can put a barrier between us and God.  When we are in rebellion against his teachings, we do not hear him well.  We may not hear him at all because we filter everything through our list of wants. But he still loves.  He still calls to us.  He reaches to bring us back to him.  The only real question is … will we let him?

Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love.

Romans 8:38b NLT
