For nothing can separate us from the love of God (Romans 8:39)

My son was throwing a fit.  He wanted something he couldn’t have, and he was determined to let the world know how angry he was about not getting it.  I picked him up.  His little legs kicked as he struggled to get down.  He was defying me, being as disobedient as a 1 1/2 year old can be.  Rebelling in every way he knew how and screaming in my ear.

But as I held him in my arms, my thoughts were of how much I loved him.  I loved the feeling of his little body close to mine.  I kissed his cheek and savored the softness of his baby skin.  He wanted nothing to do with me in that moment, but I wanted everything to do with him.  And it occurred to me…

This is how God feels about me.
