Many times I have heard people say that God cannot possibly love them. Scripture, however, tells us that is not true. God does love us. In fact, nothing can separate us from Christ's love. We may not feel Christ's love; we may not think we are worthy of his love; we may not think we deserve his love. He loves us anyway.
St. Paul, in his letter to the church in Rome, reflected on this very matter. "What will separate us from the love of Christ? Will anguish, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or the sword? No, in all these things we conquer overwhelmingly through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor present things, nor future things, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8:35, 37-39
We may have done terrible things. God doesn't love the terrible things, but God loves us. His love endures forever. (Psalm 136) Rest in his love.

I started this website and blog on May 1, 2012. I am a Catholic who has been in ministry for many years. I first developed what I would call a close relationship with Jesus in the early 1970s. Ever since then I have been praying with people for healing and other needs. It is because I have seen so many of these prayers answered that I am so bold as to offer to pray for you individually through this website and phone line.
