The Barrier Between us and God's Love

God's love for His children is evident through all that He does for us in both the scriptures and modern day. The greatest manifestation of that love was God sending His Only Begotten Son to live and be an example unto us and to suffer pain and die for our sins that we might live again. But why is it that most of us have felt a distance and separation from that love? Some people have thought it's because they're not good enough; others have thought it's because God isn't kind enough. We see in Romans 8:35, and 38-39 that such things are not the case. It says, "Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?...
"For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
"Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord"
So why do we still suffer the pain of feeling forgotten by God? If nothing can stand between us and the love of Christ, why do so many fell abandoned? IN reading this scripture I realized that we are the only thing that can separate us from feeling the love of Christ. 
We often hold ourselves back from accepting that love because we don't think we deserve it. But His love in infinite and will always be there waiting for us to open our hearts to it. As we share love, we accept love.
Don't allow anything to stifle the love that God wants to pour upon us, for it is the very thing that allows us to do anything.
