"Nothing ... can separate us from the love of God," because the love of God holds us fast. Christians are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation" (1 Pet 1:5 KJV), and the power of God keeps them believing as well as keeping them safe through believing. Your faith will not fail while God sustains it; you are not strong enough to fall away while God is resolved to hold you.
- JI Packer, Knowing God, page 275

God is your Keeper

I'm an occasional reader of your blog. Thought it would be appropriate to finally say, 'Hi there.'
I enjoy your posts. Thanks for sharing. I grew up in Montana (Red Lodge) so I envy you there a bit.
Keep it up!
