For I Am Sure

Some days I just want to stay in bed and let the world handle it's own stressful situations.

Today is not one of those days. Today I would like to completely demolish these situations. I want to meet them head on and conquer them as if they are nothing but dust.

Today I am stronger than the obstacles in my path and the insecurities of my heart.

Yesterday is gone. Today is a new day. Tomorrow will worry about itself.

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised— who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us.Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written,

"For your sake we are being killed all the day long;
we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered."
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
