Lots of Crap

Lately I’ve had quite a few (bad) things happen in my life. From death (more on that later), to bad grades (read the previous post), having my place of employment shut down, and a few other things. However, even with all of this crap around, I’m still looking to God.

I may sound crazy to some people for standing fast in such times, but I don’t care. Do soldiers run away during an invasion or ambush? Does a farmer sleep in on a cold morning? Of course not. If I want to get through this, I’m going to have to follow God.

What then shall we say about these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who didn’t spare his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how would he not also with him freely give us all things? Who could bring a charge against God’s chosen ones? It is God who justifies. Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, yes rather, who was raised from the dead, who is at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Could oppression, or anguish, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Even as it is written, “For your sake we are killed all day long. We were accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” No, in all these things, we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am persuaded, 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, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

  1. Thanks for the comment. I’m glad you enjoyed it. Sorry it took me so long to reply, and to think I bugged you about it! I’m glad to say things picked up since I wrote this. It’s amazing of what God can accoplish (and help us accomplish).

    Looking at them, Jesus said, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
    Matthew 19:26 (WEB)

    By the way, keep writing on your blog. Just because I don’t comment doesn’t mean I don’t read it. With much agape.
