It took me sometime to find the Scripture that I wanted to use but eventually the Lord lead me to the one I needed. I feel it works so well with the truth in the quote I have also used on my page.
Our Heavenly Father wants a personal relationship with us... nothing we can do will earn us His love. He already loves us because He allowed His Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ to die in our place.
I saw the black branches reaching up on my page symbolize us trying to reach up to God which is what "religion" tries to do. The reality is that God reached down to us.
Here is a link to a song by The Imperials which was a group I enjoyed and I think I owned two of their records back in the early 80s. When I first heard the song, I reacted negatively but when I really listened to the words it all makes sense.... our Christian denomination ( the Church we worship with) does not get us to Heaven.
