Love...

So yeah, I just got home from C4 and Tyson did an excellent job yet again. His message tonight was called "Love is" and he went through 1 Corinthians 13. He talked at one point about how Love never gives up no matter the circumstance. I have to say that was really convicting. I'm always so tempted to give up when things get hard...especially when it comes to trying to help someone through a difficult time in life...I see them running into a brick wall and getting hurt and it seems like no matter what I do or say, it doesn't help. Tyson reminded me tonight that God never gave up on me...I do the same thing, I run head-first into brick walls repeatedly...and yet he NEVER gives up on me. It was so encouraging to hear...I can't always see myself running into that brick wall called sin and doubt and fear, but God can...and he never gives up, he always loves me. It encouraged me never to give up on things when the going gets rough, and never to give up on my friends just because I don't know what else to do. God never gave up on me, and I can show His love by never giving up on them.

Your Love Never Fails
by Jesus Culture

Nothing can separate
Even if I ran away
Your love never fails

I know I still make mistakes
But You have new mercies for me everyday
Your love never fails

Chorus:
You stay the same through the ages
Your love never changes
There may be pain in the night but joy comes in the morning

And when the oceans rage
I don't have to be afraid
Because I know that You love me
Your love never fails

Verse 2:
The wind is strong and the water's deep
But I'm not alone in these open seas
Cause Your love never fails

The chasm is far too wide
I never thought I'd reach the other side
But Your love never fails

Bridge:
You make all things work together for my good

Thinking about what God does often puts our efforts in perspective, doesn't it? :-)
