38 No ka mea, ke manaʻo maopopo nei au, ʻaʻole e hiki i ka make a me ke ola, ʻaʻole i nā ʻānela a me nā aliʻi a me nā mea ikaika, ʻaʻole hoʻi i nā mea o nēia wā a me nā mea ma hope aku, ʻaʻole hoʻi i nā luna kānāwai,39 ʻAʻole hoʻi i ke kiʻekiʻe a me ka hohonu, ʻaʻole hoʻi i kekahi mea ʻē aʻe i hana ʻia, ke hoʻokaʻawale mai iā kākou, mai ke aloha mai o ke Akua, inā nō i loko o Kristo Iesū ʻo ko kākou Haku.- Roma 8:38-39

38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.- Romans 8:38-39

Oftentimes we feel that we are unworthy and not enough to receive the blessings of Heavenly Fathers love. During the end of my freshman year I was involved in the most extra-curricular activities of my time as a high schooler.

From finishing my first Merrie Monarch that April to winning 3rd in a volleyball tournament in Oahu for club volleyball, I rarely made it home before 10pm and left the house at 5:45am before everyone was up. It felt good to be on my own for a little while and I felt like I was mature enough to handle all these responsibilities. Sunday came around and I went to church with my family, and I realized that I had forgotten about my relationship with the Savior. Listening to the talks given and the hymns sung I became sad and felt nothing but unworthy of the Savior's Love. The time I should have spent reading the scriptures, I spent practicing volleyball. I substituted all my time that I should have spent praying with learning new oli and mele. 

We learn in Romans 8:38-39 that nothing in this world can separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. I remember feeling the Lord's love stronger when I was doubtful that he cared about me. Heavenly Father is all-knowing and he knows what I go through. Trusting in him and committing to strengthen our relationship is always ideal but no matter the circumstances, he will always love us and care about us.  For that I am grateful.
