When You're Barely Hanging On...

... He's still hanging on to You.

You are loved, dear one. No matter where you are or what you've done. No matter how far down that dark pit you have journeyed.

Nothing can pluck you from your Father's grip. Nothing.

Rest in that. Cling to that.

And if you've run away from Him, turned your back to Him, it's never too late to return. Just like the prodigal son was welcomed back into his father's home with great rejoicing and celebration, so, too, does God and all of Heaven rejoice when one of His returns unto Him.

We can never wander too far or stray for too long to be denied by Him whose love for us is unconditional, when our hearts repent and turn back to Him.

Romans 8:38-39 ~ For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 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.

Hi Amber~

This is a beautiful post, and I am truly touched. I love the Bible verse you shared at the end, too; it is one of my favorites. :)

I hope you have a lovely Friday!
