One Thing Remains
Passion came out with a new album, “White Flag,” this year. They introduced many of these songs at their Passion Conference, a conference for college worshipers around the country (and around the world). One of the songs that I can’t get out of my head is “One Thing Remains.” You can listen to this song here.

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

This line is repeated throughout the song, and is a line I seem to be singing day and night. I sing it in my head and I think:

When I’m down…Your love never fails it never gives up it never runs out on me
When I’m at my best…Your love never fails it never gives up it never runs out on me
When I’ve experienced a disappointment…Your love never fails it never gives up it never runs out on me
When I’ve seen my child succeed…Your love never fails it never gives up it never runs out on me
When I’ve seen injustice…Your love never fails it never gives up it never runs out on me
When I’ve experienced rejoicing…Your love never fails it never gives up it never runs out on me
When I’m sitting in traffic…Your love never fails it never gives up it never runs out on me
When I’m encouraging a friend…Your love never fails it never gives up it never runs out on me
When I’m driving my children to their everyday activities in the normality of life…Your love never fails it never gives up it never runs out on me

I believe this is a message God wanted us to hear and commit to memory. He gave it to us in the Psalms. As a matter of fact, in Psalm 136, the author of the Psalm repeats it 26 times: His love endures forever.

The God of the universe…His love endures forever.
The God who remembered us in our low estate…His love endures forever.
The God who spread out the earth upon the waters…His love endures forever.
The God who freed us from our enemies…His love endures forever.  

As you listen to this song, use it as a time to write your own psalm. Insert your circumstances with the reminder His love endures forever. Insert how God has revealed Himself to you with the follow-up of His love endures forever. Use it as a time to praise Him and give thanks that His love never fails, it never gives up, and it never runs out.

Psalm 103:11-12 (NIV1984) For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is His love for those who fear Him; as far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.
