I have loved you with an everlasting love.—Jeremiah 31:3
Do you ever doubt God’s love for you?
While reading this verse my eye was drawn to the word “everlasting.” Everlasting means enduring through all time, or eternal. God loves His children with this kind of love. That means there is absolutely nothing we can do to stop His love. When we are faithless, He remains faithful. When the world turns its back on us, He draws even closer to us. When we fall, He picks us up.
Everlasting is such a reassuring word. We are bound to God by His promise. We will be together forever and ever and ever . . .
Nothing can ever separate us from God’s love!
“So, what do you think? With God on our side like this, how can we lose? If God didn’t hesitate to put everything on the line for us, embracing our condition and exposing himself to the worst by sending his own Son, is there anything else he wouldn’t gladly and freely do for us? And who would dare tangle with God by messing with one of God’s chosen? Who would dare even to point a finger? The One who died for us—who was raised to life for us!—is in the presence of God at this very moment sticking up for us. Do you think anyone is going to be able to drive a wedge between us and Christ’s love for us? There is no way! Not trouble, not hard times, not hatred, not hunger, not homelessness, not bullying threats, not backstabbing, not even the worst sins listed in Scripture . . .
I’m absolutely convinced that nothing—nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable—absolutely nothing can get between us and God’s love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us.”
To God be the glory, great things He has done! May you find peace in His presence!

Pawz & Pray Book Review
“Leila’s book has been a true inspiration to me. It makes you focus on what’s really important in life. The author gives us great examples on how we can have a closer walk with God by following the lead that our pets give us in their everyday life. “Pawz & Pray” encourages us to put our worry and anxiety aside and take time to enjoy the things God has put right in front of us. This book has touched my heart in an indescribable way. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves animals and wants to have a closer connection to our Heavenly Father.”
