“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?”
Ho’omalu means shade, shelter, peace, control, strength and protection. It is a love that brings another under care and protection.
Aloha love is not a memory of the past to warm our thoughts. It is a uninterrupted, ongoing relationship with no separation. Jesus Christ’s aloha to his children is a mighty loving that does not always rescue us from calamity but unceasingly protects and preserves us for everlasting joy in his presence even through suffering and death.
Protecting and preserving
Unto lasting joy
Lord, you are the great lover. I need not fear for I am loved by you. You define aloha to me every moment. Help me walk through my day remembering that I am loved and protected.
