Bible Reading

I've decided that I need to read the Bible more. I say more, but I really haven't been reading it at all. So last night and today I've read a few chapters. What I read this morning was really what I needed; so I thought I'd share it with all of you.

"Who shall separate us from the Love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
As is is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that Loved us.
For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor Angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the Love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Romans 8:35-39

Let me repeat the verse that especially helped me because I like it so much!

"Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that Loved us."

Sometimes I feel like I just can't get through something, like I can't conquer a problem I'm having that's bogging me down in the Faith, but God is telling me that through Christ I can more than conquer these things. Just please pray for me that I can walk in the spirit and allow God to help me.

Travis has started reading a chapter of an evening. Afterwards we pray together as a family and then send the children to bed. It really seems to help with bedtime.

I got so much comfort from the same verse you liked. I have been going through a very firey trial lately and even though I know all these things it is a great comfort to me to hear it again. Thank you.
