From my corner of the room, where I’ve been witnessing the exchange between Martha and the Lord, I just saw and heard Jesus stating a truth that I want to hang on to for the rest of my days on this earth: “…and it will not be taken away from her.” Luke 10: 42b
No matter what may happen…I can endure it all if I stick by the feet of Christ.
That’s my job. That’s the only thing that matters. And once I’m there, nothing…no force from this world or the next could pull me away from His presence.
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 Jesus our Lord. Romans 8: 38-39
Surrendering to Him means that we get to stay with Him. And that is exactly what I want. Let’s just spend a moment still...taking comfort on these words…allowing this truth to sink in…
“…and it will not be taken away from her.” Luke 10: 42b
Praised be His Holy Name!
