Gospel Reading today: Luke 13:31-35
First Reading: Romans 8:31-39

"Who then can separate us from the love of Christ? Can trouble do it, or hardship or persecution or hunger or poverty or danger or death?" Romans 8:35

I read the passage from Romans this morning and took amazing comfort that nothing here on earth can separate us from God's love. Just as I talked about yesterday that our love we have welled up inside for our family and for others is the Kingdom of God at hand, for nothing about love comes from ourselves but is only the pureness and goodness of God. We are all suffering with some sort of troubles right now I am sure.....troubles with finances, troubles with pregnancies, troubles with family, troubles with co-workers, troubles with neighbors, troubles with health, troubles with disabilities, troubles with name it, one of us has got it. How wonderful to know through all of these troubles, we are never separated from God's love. His love is like a warm blanket wrapped around us in the cold. His love is like our Mother's arms wrapped around us telling us everything is going to be okay. We are guaranteed in this life no matter what happens that God's love is always present among us and in us. This goes back to yesterday again with mother's being the kingdom of God at hand. Nothing can separate our love for our children....nothing! Just as our children need to be comforted by our love, we need to be wrapped in the arms of Jesus and comforted as well. This is one beautiful circle of love and LOVE is what it all boils down to in life. Are you loving your children in others the way God loves you? Are you constantly wrapping your arms of love around your children and husband reassuring them that everything is going to be okay? For this is what God does to us and in turn we are to be Christ (the kingdom of God) for our families. Never abandoning them, never forsaking them, but always loving them. They will know God's love by our love.

Whatever you are going through today, take a deep breath and rest in the arms of Jesus. He is all you need nothing more. His love will see you through all trials and heartaches. Just breath and pray.

Have a blessed Thursday!
