Neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:39
The last time we were able to be in the same room with my mother-in-law was mid-March. We are grateful that we can do window visits with her but it’s not quite the same. We understand it’s for her safety, and thankfully, at age 90, she understands also. Many residents in care centers and people in their own homes are isolated and lonely. Loneliness is not good for us and can even cause health problems.
The good news is that God is with us. We are never alone. Nothing can separate us from his love. This is an amazing promise! I pray that everyone will be able to feel God’s love and feel less lonely knowing he is watching over us.
Is there someone you can reach out to today and share God’s love with? A friend or relative you haven’t spoken to in a while? Make someone else’s day and help them feel loved and less lonely. Reaching out and caring for others can quite often make your day pretty awesome, too.
