Nothing can separate us from God’s love in Christ Jesus our Lord: not death or life, not angels or rulers, not present things or future things, not powers or height or depth, or any other thing that is created. - Romans 8:38-39 (CEB)
I never really understood this verse until a few years ago when I was faced with the death of my oldest child. I went through myriad emotions and wondered if they were really valid. I was raised to believe that I should never be mad about anything that God allowed...
Even when I am angry, God is with me.
Those afraid to be honest with God
