I, at times, feel cut-off and lonely from those closest to me. And even from my FATHER, in Heaven.
Feelings aren’t always accurate. A lot of the time, they are born of past traumas, misunderstandings, and hurts.
I am told that nothing shall separate me from the LORD; neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come! Not height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate me from the love of GOD, which is in CHRIST JESUS our LORD.
That certainly includes the swirling doubts, lies, and confusion that dances around within my brain.
Ahhhh, but by the grace of GOD, I can override my mind’s tricks.
I draw near to GOD and HE draws near to me. GOD draws so close to me that no evil, no doubt, not even death can separate me from HIM! So, we are tight!!
And that means, I’m not ever cut-off. I’m not bypassed. I’m not unloved. Even if... I feel that way.
I am Deni, short for Denise. I grew up in a Jewish home, in a Jewish neighborhood and a Jewish family. In 3rd grade we moved. We moved to a mostly non-Jewish area.... that is where JESUS found me. I say found me because I yet had not acknowledged it, but would find out later.......by grace, HE HELD ME ALL ALONG, just a lil Jewish girl from Philly.
