nothing...absolutely nothing

Beautiful flowers lined the front of the worship center. In the middle of the pinks and yellows and greens was the casket, a reminder throughout the service that this precious woman was now with the Lord.

As my fingers danced across the keys of the piano, the voices of the vocalists rang in that large room.

“Never can the powers of darkness. Neither death nor life. Let nothing ever separate us. From the holy love of God.”

It was like I was hearing the passage from Romans 8 for the first time. “Neither death nor life nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, or 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.” What a promise. Not even death can separate us from the love of God. Not even that which is a result of our own sinfulness can separate us from God. Nothing…absolutely nothing can separate us.

I guess everything will be ok, then.
