It's November - I'm Ever So Thankful Nothing Can Separate Me From God's Love for Me!

Image result for clipart for Romans 8Today, November 12th, I'm thankful nothing can separate me from God's love for me. Since salvation is a gift and depends on God, there is nothing I can ever do - or anyone else can ever do, which will take God's love away! So, when I think about what I'm thankful for, I have to include how thankful I am nothing can take God's love away!

Look at what we find in Romans 8:37-39 . . . 
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 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.
Nothing, not one single thing "in all creation" can ever separate me from God! Since I am an imperfect person, I'm so thankful for this. When I talk with my grandsons about this, I'll share these verses and encourage them to write it out/draw pictures to illustrate it and then put it by their beds. I want them to remember this truth - throughout their lives there may be times when they might wonder if something they said or did would stop God's love. I want them to be firmly grounded in the truth of how absolutely nothing can ever stop God's love for them!

And this is absolutely something for which we can be extremely thankful! What are you thankful for today?
