Separation

Ro 8:38-39 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,  neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God  that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Last night a young woman died.  We don’t know the cause yet.  Many of us in our church had been working with her.  She had a heart for God but struggled with the darkness of drugs.  She battled hard in her own might and was learning to battle in the might of God’s Holy Spirit.  Now I see her free from the darkness that tried so hard to defeat her.  I see her basking in the love of the presence of God.  She had an evangelistic heart for children.  It is hard to understand why God did not intervene in whatever caused her death but we trust His power, His wisdom and His wisdom.  This young woman will forever have a place in our hearts.  The children she reached out to will carry her witness with them throughout their lives.  Darkness can no longer try to separate her from the love of God.
