"And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow - not sent 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 8:38-39
