I have read this passage from the bible a few times but it did not break my heart as it did the first time i read it Autumn 2012. I remember reading these words and breaking down. Since then, Peter’s words would echo my heart and mind whenever struggle and trials come my way and I feel the Lord asking me if I were to turn my back on Him.
This is the truth. There’s no where I could go to escape the power of Your Love. Even if the devil robs me of my joy, You’re still the Lord. You’re still God. my struggles do not change You. my situations do not change You. I just have to remind myself everyday that Your love is more powerful than anything. It’s powerful enough for You to sacrifice Your only Son so I could have life that is truly life.
No matter what the enemy tells me, no matter how i feel, that doesn’t change You. So if to be asked, Lord, with all honesty, I have nowhere to go than stay in your loving embrace. Please keep us in the palm of Your hand. Hold us close and don’t ever let go.
