One Thing Remains

As I'm tossed and thrown into the sea of assignments, tutorials and unreasonable deadlines, I know that His love never fails, never gives up, never runs out on me. No matter how hard I try to outrun myself in finishing my work on time, regretfully pushing God's time aside, I will never ever outrun His love for me. His grace, love and mercy is sufficient for me. No matter how tired, confused, stressed and messed up I am in the whirlwind of my college life right now, ONE THING REMAINS, my love for Him would never fail as well.....I feel like I'm falling in love with my Jesus more and more and more and more each day!

Verse 1:
Higher than the mountains that I face
Stronger than the power of the grave
Constant in the trial and the change
One thing... Remains (repeat)

Your love never fails, never gives up
Never runs out on me (3x)

Verse 2:
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

PS: Got suddenly reminded of this song when I was surfing the internet in Singapore, wanted to feel God even when I was far from home(hostel) and the words 'Your love never fails, never gives up, never runs out on me" came and I "googled" it (because I have a vague memory of hearing this song in church once) and the moment I heard it,  I was just overwhelmed with His presence that it brought me goosebumps and tears! Now in my room as I'm finishing up on my tutorial (gotta stop the procrastination) , and hearing the birds start to chirp to the rise of a new day, no fear has come, only contentment, knowing that as a new day dawns, His love for me is no less  still the same.... and the renewal of mind that comes with it just makes me feel His love for me increases every single day. I just love this song that speaks of a simple yet frequently forgotten or unearthed truth....
