#slowitdownSunday / are life’s circumstances too much?

Tonight as I #slowitdownSunday and reflect on a crazy busy week for our family, I’m reminded of this simple truth I read in my Jesus Calling devotional for today:

“No set of circumstances could ever isolate you from My loving Presence. Not only do I see you always; I see you as a redeemed saint, gloriously radiant in My righteousness. That is why I take great delight in you and rejoice over you with singing!” – Jesus Calling Devotional

Let me say that one part again:

NO SET OF CIRCUMSTANCES COULD EVER ISOLATE YOU FROM MY LOVING PRESENCE.

Did ya’ll get that?
Do you realize that truth – do you know it is FOR YOU?

Nothing can separate us from Him. Nothing. Nothing. Absolutely nothing.

“Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.”
– Psalm 139:7-10

I may have shared this song before on my blog, but it’s on my heart so strongly tonight and captures what I want us all to remember tonight: God Loves You.

Here are the words to the song above – one of my all time favorites!

Hope, like a flower, will push through the smallest crack in your broken heart
And out of the deep darkest night will shine the brightest burning star
Oh it’s there, like a half remembered song
The thing that you’ve forgotten
But have known all along

God loves you
And He wants you to know
He is with you
You are not alone
He will see you through
God loves you

Tears are just water and salt, but a thimble full can feel oceans wide
But trust that just one gentle breeze can sail you to the other side
Oh it’s there, like a whisper on the breeze
The truth that’s so familiar
But still hard to believe

God loves you
And He wants you to know
He is with you
You are not alone
He will see you through
God loves you

You don’t have to be anywhere near perfect
You don’t ever have to prove a thing
You are loved, you are loved
So far beyond your imagining

God loves you
And He wants you to know
He is with you
You are not alone
He will see you through
God loves you
