Romans 8:38-39 says:
And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow- not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below- indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ our Lord.
So last night I was on Twitter and saw a tweet from Tenth Avenue North announcing the release of their new song “Break of Day”. I immediately stopped everything I was doing and went onto iTunes to listen to it. I had another post all planned out for today but as soon as I heard that song I knew I needed to talk about it.
One of my favorite lines from the song is:
“That if the demons come at night, and I can’t feel you by my side, even if I fall a thousand times, I’ll keep calling your name, waiting for the break of day.”
I feel like it’s such a powerful thing what they chose to talk about. When you’re struggling with things, night is often the worst time for you. It’s so easy to let yourself fall back on all the progress you’ve made because you’re all alone with your thoughts. You let the demons take control and you let them hurt you because you convince yourself that you’re all alone. I know on many occasions I have dreaded night time because I feel like I’ve been completely deserted.
Sometimes it feels like it’s impossible to reach out to someone, God included, because you feel like it’s too late and you’ll only be bothering them. So many nights I have let myself believe this and I’ve sat alone being consumed with negative thoughts until I feel like I would never feel happy again.
My message for you today is to not let yourself ever believe that you are alone in your walk. Nothing will ever separate you from God, and even if you think that he has deserted you in those late hours of the night, know that he hasn’t and that he loves you more than ever. Even if you are afraid to ask a friend for help, never be afraid to ask God for help. He will always be there for you, there’s no reason he would ever neglect you.
Remember, you are beloved children of God, and no matter what you are struggling with, there will always be someone there for you to call on.
Have a wonderful week everyone.
