Nothing Can Separate by meowsap Nothing Can Separate by meowsap
"For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
" ~ Romans 8:38-39

I was reading/meditating on this verse a few days ago, and it really hit me that nothing can separate us from God's love. It doesn't matter what is going on in our lives! It doesn't matter how we feel! It doesn't matter what we have done - He will forgive when we ask. God's love will not leave us.
I was thinking of the state of my country, and thinking of our future, and here it says in the verse - no powers, no things to come can separate us from God's love. Why worry and panic about an unknown future if I know that God cares for me and is in control?

Not only that, but I remembered Christians across the world who are persecuted and imprisoned daily. This inspired the picture. We could be in the deepest cell, imprisoned in darkness, without any other person to comfort us, without hope - and yet God's love is ever-present with us. We are never alone, no matter our feelings.

Pray for those who experience persecution, torture, and imprisonment for their faith. :heart:

I believe God inspired me to do this pic - I've actually never done something like this before, and never used Adobe Illustrator either, so it was a learning process. :) I'm really happy with it though. :love:

You did a really good job with this! God must have been moving through you on your first shot at Illustrator. :) It's a simple, pleasing image... but the big heart in the sky speaks so much of Who God is to us!

This turned out great. It's a very interesting way to illustrate this verse, I never would have thought of doing it this way. It's modern and simple. I love it. :heart: And it's a great verse too! Thanks for the reminder. :aww:
