one thing remains

At mass this morning, the kids did the cutest hand motions to the song "One Thing Remains" by Jesus Culture.  The motions were done to the chorus:

"One thing remains: Your love never fails, it never gives up, it never runs out on me."

Reflecting on the events over the last few days, I can really say that God's love really doesn't run out on me.  There are prayers answered in ways I wish were different, but that doesn't mean His love for me has failed.  It never runs out.  He just keeps pouring and I keep failing to love Him back.  Instead I keep asking and begging and doubting.

Well yesterday, during the feast of our Guardian Angels, God sure showed me something that said, "Ok, for REAL, Maricris???!  You think I've failed you now??"  Yeah.  He let my angels kick my ass but in a good way.  I wish I could elaborate, but I can't even begin to explain it.  I wish someone was next to me to witness it, but it's real.


So one thing remains, when you think that God has failed you.  His love never runs out.  It just keeps pouring out endlessly.  It comes in forms we don't expect.  Sometimes it is really obvious, other times not so much.  Whether you see it or not, it's there.  God's love is always there.  Oh, and so are your angels ;)

When you have time, check out the song: One Thing Remains
