We are more...

 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?   He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? Who shall bring any charge against God's elect? It is God who justifies.   Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised— who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us.Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?  As it is written,
“For your sake we are being killed all the day long;
    we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.”
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.  For I am sure that neither death nor
life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers,  nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

(Romans 8:31-39)

These words I read a few nights ago,
read again,
but for the first time.

So good.

It is God who justifies. Who is to condemn?


Not them.
Not me.

He justifies so that there is no condemnation.

What can separate us from His love?

Including myself.
Which is the thing that most often threatens to.

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved .

We are more.
More than just okay.
More than just barely squeaking by.
More than  enough!
Because He is.





  1. Thanks for your words of encouragement :)

  2. Ooh good reminder, I fear I too am my worst enemy when it comes to letting my worry-song fill up my soul instead of his love-song.
