So I have a really soft spot in my heart, which is impressive because I have a pretty stinkin' soft heart, for Brandon Heath and his music. The summer before my senior year of high school, a boyfriend and I had broken up. It was a really awful break up, things were not nice, but God had opened a door for me to go away for a month to serve at a YoungLife camp. Brandon Heath happened to be the musician for the month that I was there. Each week there is a mini concert, the first week I couldn't make it through the first song without major tears. The second week, I made it a little bit further. By the last week, I could make it through the whole thing without tears.
Well, I am at another crossroads in life. And let me tell you my emotions are about as similar to the latest Carrie Underwood cd. Most moments I am sad, some moments I am hopeful, some moments I see the bigger picture, some I am bitter, but I still feel love, always.
There is a song that I heard a while ago, and I knew right when I heard it, it was B. Heath. Its called, Love Never Fails.
After this week that I have had, I heard the song again, and it had a different meaning to me this time around. God is Love... This song is about His love for us, but also He teaches us how to Love. I believe in Love, Hope, Faith... Nothing will change that.
Love Never Fails Brandon Heath
Love is not proud Love does not boast Love after all Matters the most
Love does not run Love does not hide Love does not keep Locked inside
Love is the river that flows through Love never fails you
Love will sustain Love will provide Love will not cease At the end of time
Love will protect Love always hopes Love still believes When you don't
Love is the arms that are holding you Love never fails you
When my heart won't make a sound When I can't turn back around When the sky is falling down Nothing is greater than this Greater than this
Love is right here Love is alive Love is the way The truth the life
Love is the river than flows through Love is the arms that are holding you Love is the place you will fly to Love never fails you
