Thankful

By Cindy Cameron

One Thing Remains

Higher than the mountains that I face
Stronger than the power of the grave
Constant through the trial and the change
One thing remains
One thing remains

Your love never fails it never gives up it never runs out on me x3

On and one 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 and 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

The worship team at Trinity added this song to their setlist rotation a while ago, and it speaks deeply to me every time I hear the congregation sing it together. Sometimes the song gives me goosebumps, other times it brings tears to my eyes. But each time, it is definitely the Holy Spirit speaking to me, preaching to me words that I need to hear, reminding me just how wonderful God’s love is. God’s love is so big, unconditional, extraordinary, amazing, special; these adjectives don’t do it justice.

God’s love never fails. God’s love never gives up. God’s love will NEVER run out on me. No matter how many times I mess up, it doesn’t matter, God still loves me. These truths are worth repeating, over and over again like in the chorus. I’ll be the first to admit that I am far from perfect. Yet God still loves me. It’s that awesome. How can I not be eternally thankful for God’s love?!

When I finally meet God face-to-face, I know one of the questions on the tip of my tongue will be “why?” But as He continues to show me and teach me more about His everlasting love, I hope that my curiosity takes a backseat and that I can just smile, and say “thank You for loving me, thank You for loving me whether I was bad or good, stubborn or humble, straying from Your path or walking close beside You. Thank You.”

Romans 8:38-39 For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
