Your Love Never Fails
I have mentioned in the past that one song that has been very special to me is “How He Loves” because God has taught me much about His unconditional love for me even in the midst of deep hardship. Interestingly, there is another song that we began singing at church recently and is now playing on the radio that has the same theme of God’s love: “One Thing Remains.” It has become equally as special to me. I posted the lyrics below and love to sing this song over and over again in my head as a reminder of such truth.
Two weeks ago, I received a package in my mailbox addressed to my Baby Girl from our dear family friends. How sweet, I thought as I brought the box inside. I opened it up and saw a freezer bag with two adorable pairs of baby booties. How cute! Then I looked at what was written on the bag and I literally gasped out loud: “Michelle started chemo 2-16-12; We bought 2-17-12.” Tears instantly formed in my eyes and soon turned into sobs. I sat at my kitchen table and wept. I realized I was crying because while I was enduring one of the most difficult times of my life, my friends were believing that joy would come after this storm. And a baby girl at that!
After I calmed down, I got in my car to drive to meet the rest of my family at my parents’ house. The minute I put the key in the ignition, “One Thing Remains” began playing on the radio. Tears began falling all over again as if God was saying to me, “My love never fails. I loved you through that excrucriating season and I am loving you in this new, exciting season.” It was more than my heart could take and I cried the whole trip as I soaked in the truth. I pray these words encourage you as well. His Love never fails no matter what season of life we’re facing.
One Thing Remains by Jesus Culture
Higher than the mountains that I face
Stronger than the power of the grave
Constant through the trial and the change
One thing… Remains
Your love never fails, never gives up
Never runs out on me [3x]
On and on and on and on it goes
It overwhelms and satisfies my soul
And I never, ever, have to be afraid
One thing remains
In death, In life, I’m confident and
covered by the power of Your great love
My debt is paid, there’s nothing that can
separate my heart from Your great love…
