As I was driving home from work yesterday afternoon I was listening to a Chris Tomlin CD. As I listened to the song “Unfailing Love” I was struck by the wonderful unfailing and never changing love the Lord has for each one of us. I’ve certainly thought about this before and am always amazed at God’s love for me. But yesterday, it just hit me in a way that has stayed with me…. I’ve thought about it more since then and have taken time to be thankful for this amazing love that is so freely given to each and every one of us. God is all mighty and all powerful and holds the world in the palm of his hand… but yet, he makes time for me… and He loves me (and you)…. unconditionally and unchanging.
No matter how unloving I may act, God never fails to love me. No matter where I live or what kind of car I drive, God never fails to love me. No matter what I look like or what I do for a living, God never fails to love me.
When my “mommy heart” melts and cries because I see my kids change and grow up right before my very eyes, God’s love never changes. When people in my life hurt my feelings or I allow my pride to be hurt, God’s love never changes. Even when the world around me is swirling in change, God’s love never changes.
The words to the chorus of the song “Unfailing Love” are below. Please join me today in thankfulness and praise for the mighty, “Unfailing Love” of our Lord.
Praise You, God of earth and sky
How beautiful is Your unfailing love
And You never change, God, You remain
The Holy One and my unfailing love
For more Thankful Thursday
