Your love never fails

I've been struggling since Thursday.  A tragic death of a father and two sons, and the death of a family member of a friend from Sunday school.  My heart has been heavy.

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

I've also had a heavy heart for a family I have never met, but I read their blog, and for another friend from Sunday school who is starting chemo this week.

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

I know that I want to question God and life.  I want to know why we must endure these kind of things.

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

I want to know why some prayers go unanswered and why tragedy and injustice occur.

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

I want to throw a fit and see fire fall from heaven and healing come.

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

And, yet.
He is so much bigger than all of this.
We are not the only ones that have tragedy. So many people in every area of the world in every time period have experienced tragedy.
But, faith.
Faith through all of it, proves that He is still here.

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

lyrics: "Your love never fails" Chris McClarney
