One Thing Remains

Yesterday, I visited my dad because today is his birthday. Every time I visit my dad, I am touched by God’s love poured upon my family. We have made it this far (almost 2 years!) by His grace and God has blessed us in so many interesting ways since the loss of my dad in 2010. Though God took him away when I was only 21, I am thankful for all the good memories I have of him. I definitely respected my dad for his Biblical leadership and faithfulness to our family and God, even through the trials in life. Happy Birthday, Dad!

Today I met my new class of Kindergarteners (they’re cuteee!) and some coworkers and tried to clean up and organize my new classroom. After observing the substitute teach my class for a day, I am feeling more comfortable about teaching Kindergarten next Monday! The transition from third grade to Kindergarten is something that I will soon get used to, and who knows – I may end up liking Kindergarten as much as I like third grade!

Time after time, I have learned that life on earth is temporary and fleeting. God took away my dad, but He also provided me a 3rd grade position, took it away, gave it back to me, took it away again, and provided me a Kindergarten position. Despite the changes in life, especially with my sudden work transfer, I have to remember that only one thing is steady – God’s love for you and me! This song has particularly encouraged me during this time.

Chorus:
Your love never fails
It never gives up
It never runs out on me (x3)
Your love

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
One thing remains

Chorus

Verse 2:
Because 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
One thing remains

Chorus

Bridge:
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
