I wanted to let
you know, Diane, that I cannot thank you enough for writing the
devotional which came through Encouraging Words today.
There are so many things coming against me right now
and it is so encouraging to be reminded that it doesn't mean God doesn't love me
and He does not withhold His love from us in the midst of it. Also, that verse
about how He did not spare His own son is one of my favorite and I needed to be

My message focused on how nothing
can separate us from the love of God. We must
not look to circumstances for evidence of God's love or proof that he will take care of us. Since God did not
