Psalm 139:13,14 are the verses that God gave us for Jude
while he was still just a wee babe in my womb.
As we've been praying for Jude in preparation for his surgery tomorrow,
God has really impressed upon us the deepness of His love for our son.
As deep and strong and powerful as our love for Jude is,
His love is deeper,
and more powerful.
We will be holding onto the promise of Romans 8:35-39.
Please join us tomorrow in covering our sweet, little 'Ju-Jube'
with the promise of God's unfailing love.
I shared these verses with my parents last night and my dad
told me that Romans 8 was my Opa Meinen's favorite passage
in the Bible. He had the whole chapter memorized, in Dutch.
I think while I'm in the hospital I'll memorize it, in English :)
Peter's grandmother shared with me about a loss her own
mother went through, and how she held onto God's love through that time.
How God blessed them, even in a difficult season.
Nothing can separate us from God's love.
Jude's uncle preached about the power of love this
past Sunday. You can listen to it here.
He began his message by asking the congregation to
turn to each other and say, "Daddy loves you."
Well, Daddy loves you my dear son.
And he's carrying you close to His heart.
Thank you for filling the heavens with your prayers.
We are so blessed.
So, what do you think?
With God on our side like this, how can we lose?
If God didn't hesitate to put everything on the line for us,
embracing our condition and exposing himself to
the worst by sending his own Son, is there anything
else he wouldn't gladly and freely do for us?
And who would dare tangle with God
by messing with one of God's chosen?
I'm absolutely convinced that nothing...
can get between us and God's love!
