In My Words, simply…Romans 8:31-39

So what do you think?

With God on our side, like the book says, how can we lose? Look at this…

If God didn’t hesitate to put everything on the line for us, embracing our condition. Exposing Himself to the worst thing for a person, human, parent!; by sending His own Son, is there anything else that He wouldn’t gladly and freely do for us?

…and this being True…Who would dare to stand against God, messing with His chosen? Who would mess with the children of God?

Who could even possess the courage to point a finger?!

Check it…The ONE who died for us ~ Who was raised to life for us! ~ is in the presence of God the Creator, God the Father, at this very moment, sticking up for us! Acting as our pro-bono Defense Attorney, our Advocate!

Do you think anyone is going to have the ability 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 poverty.
Not bullying threats.
Not backstabbing.
Not medical death sentences.
NOT even the worst sins listed in the scriptures!

You say…”…well they kill us in cold blood because they hate Jesus. Christians are picked off, at large, one by one!”

None of this fazes us! Because Jesus does love us.

I AM absolutely pursuaded-convinced that nothing ~NOTHING~ living or dead. Angelic or demonic. Today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable.

ABSOLUTELY NOTHING can seperate us…You…Me…Everyone…from God’s love. Simply because of the way that Jesus, the Master, has embraced us.

Our worst deeds have been paid for. Each one of us has been chosen, adopted by God!
Nothing can touch us!

Keep heart…be courageous!

As posted by Pastor Luffman…
Courage defined is the capacity to stand by our Core. Whatever has your heart is at the core of your being and determines your courage.

Jesus is my core…and I courageously call His Name!
What is at your core????

Blessings Loves ♥

Welcome, I'm Andrea ... HOPEannFAITH ... I write and take pictures as a way of expression. These are gifts given by a loving and indulgent Father, to a headstrong and stubborn daughter, with much to say. A semi-retired social worker/secretary, I now call myself a writer. I've published one internet article and written many blog posts. However, publishing does not make one a writer, anymore than taking a box camera to the park makes one a photographer. What makes one who and what they are? Well God for one ... formed me before the foundations of this world (Psalm 139); and many, many years after putting away my passion for wordsmithing and picture taking He gave it back ... in droves. I am a culmination of my choices and experiences. It is here that my experiences color the world in print and color. It is my goal to reach just one soul a day with love ... encouragement ... understanding or just letting that soul know that they are not alone where they are today. This is about creating ~ all of it. Creating a HOLY and SACRED place where the ugly truth can be healed and the beauty of a moment or a tear can brighten a day for the experience. Why HOPEannFAITH? Hopeannfaith is my inner child, and she is maturing, as she should have done all along. She is learning all about how Faith fulfills Hope. She is learning how to live. HOPEannFAITH ~ the wonder twins all wrapped up in one, me. These are my Journey Journals ~ written and visual. I welcome your company. I welcome your friendships. My Journey is in the light ~ although I have and will share the shadowy corners and the dark ~ so you know that you are never alone there. If we hold hands in the dark, and we walk, side by side, through the shadow, we will reach the Light together. In relationship with one another and with the Light. Blessings.

  1. Nice going, Andrea!

    I will enjoy re-reading this and I too thought it fascinating to see the same Scriptures used. 🙂 I’ll add you to my blogroll, too. 🙂
