November- A Closer Look (Pt 1)

The Endless Love of God

By: Hannah Pitts
As believers, we are covered by God's love through our salvation by the bloodshed of Jesus. I came from a divorced home, a sent off teenager, a drug addict and homeless or "couch hopping" 6 months after graduation, put all my love and trust in the wrong relationships, and even conceived a child out of wedlock. And still struggle with anxiety and depression.

I grew up learning about God and Jesus and the Holy Spirit. But never truly experienced Him for myself in my own faith. When I became pregnant with my daughter I knew it wasn't about me anymore and I truly gave my life to Jesus. I surrendered it all. And I have had several moments of refinement.

This Bible verse means so much to me as it gives opposite extremes of things and I have lived in opposite extremes. Even after salvation. From loving life to wanting to take my own. An amazing marriage but have had stumbling stones of heart aching hardships. I love being a mother but have also had postpartum depression and wanted to end my life because I didn't love it all. I have been financially blessed and have also had no money to make it the end of the week until payday. But the tribulations of this world can not and will not separate me from the love of God. God showed us how much He loves us by sending His only Son to pay the ultimate price on the cross so that we may be with Him in heaven. All we have to do is surrender, believe, and have faith. NOTHING can take your salvation away.

God's love is forever and all powerful, stronger than any form of love we will ever experience in this earth and in our borrowed time here. His love is everlasting through it all. And nothing can pluck us out of His hand.

"For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."-  Romans 8:38-39
