Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he 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. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8:35-39 NLT
This is part of seeing by faith. It is fully believing this, in the face of pure tragedy. It is believing it not only for myself who is devestated by losing Shah, but also for Shah who has now experienced the death of the body. We have been separated physically from each other, but we still both share God’s love.
Some days I feel completely lost and broken, but other days I feel Team Zolfaghari continues with God as our link and that neither of us are alone with God with us.
