I got out of bed at about 05:20am. It was another cold morning but today I felt stronger. The week before writing this letter, I was admitted at a clinic. It was a difficult period for me as I could hardly move a finger nor whisper.
Today and as often as I try to remember, I am learning to be thankful for life. Life without hope is much better than hope without life, for a fact such does not even exist. I have had remind myself often than not that this life is my chance to live, to be strong, to walk and be well.Life without hope is much better than hope without life. Click To Tweet
As I write this, today isn’t one of those days I feel so spiritual. I have not really had a good study of the Bible seven days backwards from today. I have prayed sometime but not in the measure I know I could.
As I think about my life and the paths I have had to walk through, though in the past week I have carried out only very little spiritual exercise, something keeps ringing inside me that I cannot ignore and it is what I now know I will be leaving with you today.
When you take a retrospective look at your life, what are the questions that come to your mind? What are the thoughts that never leave you? Whose suggestions about your life are you accepting? And what conclusion about you are you believing?
Today just like always, I am thinking about people all over the world who are surviving one pressure, one mistake, one challenge, one abuse, one illness or the other. Circumstances around us may have turned us to survivors but there is a truth and fact that sustains me.
It is the truth that kept ringing in my heart and still does even now as I write this.
There is so much we now believe about life because of what we have been through individually. Nevertheless, I hope that when you find this letter I am penning to you today, you will believe this also:
Who shall ever separate us from Christ’s love? Shall suffering and affliction and tribulation? Or calamity and distress? Or persecution or hunger or destitution or peril or sword?…Yet amid all these things we are more than conquerors and gain a surpassing victory through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded beyond doubt (am sure) that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor things to come, nor powers, nor heights nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Paul a lawyer, tent maker, business man and Apostle wrote those words in the eight chapter of his book to the people of Rome. In the biblical compilation, you can find his writing in Romans chapter 8 verse 35 to 39.
I am loved and nothing can take away that assurance from me. You are loved but are you letting situations take that away from you?
I choose today to respond to that love not of human effort but of divine offering. Will you make the same decision? You are loved! You are loved!! You are loved!!! Let no one and let nothing take that away from you.
Live in God’s love today and always. He cares.
