To Be Loved Forever

Does it mean
God no longer loves us
if we have trouble or calamity,
or are persecuted, or hungry,
or destitute, or in danger,
or threatened with death?
(As the Scriptures say,
“For your sake
we are killed every day;
we are being slaughtered
like sheep.”)
No, despite all these things,
overwhelming victory is ours
through Christ, who loved us.
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.
