The Love of God

A picture from my hike this morning. I love light. It’s my current choice of study. It’s powerful. Beautiful. 

See how it cuts through the trees, as if it’s holding nothing back trying to reach me? This is how I imagine the love of God. 
We sometimes get lost among the trees of distraction, sin, fear, shame, and self-doubt. Sometimes we are working through some really hard things and we feel we’ve lost our way, that the issues are towering over us and surround us. 
But, as Paul says, nothing can separate us from the love of God. It is more powerful than our issues and sins. And He will do all He can—bend around the issues, cut through the cracks in our armor of fear and doubt—to reach us. We simply need to choose to see it and feel it, and accept it. 
It’s ok that you have doubt and fear and heartache, because He is stronger than all of that, and can and will give you the light and love and strength you need to make it out into the open again.
