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

I could not have found The Upper Room Moments of Prayer (on Facebook Live) sooner. For it is during these moments of centering spiritual practices, meditating on the words of scripture, praying with and for the world, that I find moments of transcendence, hear whispers of peace and hope, see glimpses of truth and justice, behold visions of love and beauty amid all the stark realities that are around me.”
