God is faithful...

Jesus Culture Your love never fails.... 

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

You stay the same through the ages
Your love never changes
There may be pain in the night but joy comes in the morning
[ Lyrics from: ]
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 here 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

You make all things work together for my good

I went for a run today and had tears come to my eyes as I listened to this song.  There was a day when "I never thought I would reach the other side".  I thought "the chasm was far to wide".  Every day seemed like an eternity.   I couldn't understand why God would allow something like this into my life, or my kids lives.  
It was those very moments that I would have to realize that God's love NEVER FAILS!  He stays the same through every trial and triumph.  Our circumstances DO NOT determine the measure of Gods love for us.  His love never fails and NEVER changes!!!!! No matter what we go through, no matter how deep the water feels, or how alone we feel... HE IS ALWAYS RIGHT THERE WITH US!!!!!

Which leads me to another Jesus Culture song.... Where you go I go

where you go I go
what you say I say, God
where you pray I pray
where you pray I pray

Jesus only did
what he saw you do
he would only say
what he heard you speak

he would only move
when he felt you lead
following your heart
following your spirit

how could I expect
to walk without you
when every move that Jesus made
was in surrender

I would not begin
to live without you
for you alone are worthy
and you are always good

We have to come to realize that no matter what we go through, we have to be like Jesus.  "Every move that Jesus made was in SURRENDER"  We HAVE to surrender not only when things are good, but when things are horrible!  It is in those times that God shows up in a mighty way in and through our lives.  Just like in the song if we are going to expect to walk with God we have to expect a heart fully surrendered to God.  No matter where he asks us to go or what he asks us to do.  
I have now reached the other side of the chasm, so to speak.  I am now blending a family and on the move again.  Not sure where or what God has in store, yet fully confident in a God who's love NEVER FAILS and promises to lead us!  
It was 2 weeks after Scott died that I told God he shattered my dreams! His response... My plans far exceed your dreams!  
Where is God calling you?  What is He asking you to do? How are you having to trust God? 
I am right there with you!  He is calling me to a change I am not sure I want, yet I am confident that His plans will be far better than my wants!!! 
My hearts desires are...

Where you go I go
What you say I say, God
Where you pray I pray
Where you pray I pray

I want to be right in the middle of where God wants me.  It is the safest place to be.  Just like Jesus we have to be in surrender even if it looks scary!!!  I am not sure who this is for.  I just know that I was suppose to blog about this!  It is my heart and my desires.  These songs mean the world to me! Because they hit home!!!
