Rambling Plans

Being in a semi-vacation phase of life makes a Monday planning post challenging. I am not sure these days where my time will go. Like the Israelites in the desert we are waiting to be lead by spirit.
The scripture on my heart as I head into this week is Romans 8. These are my some favorite verses: 31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?   

35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?  

 37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.

38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

This was my heart after hearing the message at church yesterday. The message was about suffering being a part of life. Everyone suffers and God never gives us more than we can handle. I related to this because I have gone through some difficult health situations and remember people using this scripture bring me comfort. I personally think that Romans 8 is more comforting. According to Romans 8 my comfort is in God who is always with me.

Luke 12:48  
From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.

God has given me much and so we can in times of struggle refer to Romans 8:
18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.

If you are facing a health or life crisis today, I hope you can find as much comfort in Romans 8 as I have over the years.
