Thought for the day: Love Never Fails

Yesterday afternoon I got a new tattoo. One I have been wanting for a while.

The last year has literally been chaos.

With my parents divorcing, having to switch churches, brother moving to Japan and getting married, me moving to London for grad school…it all is just so exhausting.

Always playing the peace keeper between family members can really put weight on your shoulders…and everyone has different ways of releasing that pressure.

Music has been my escape.

I am one of those people. When I like a song…I listen to it on repeat till I can’t listen to it anymore.

One song, that has really touched me and helped me through the last year is a song by my ever so favourite artist, Brandon Heath. The song? Love Never Fails.

Now, we all know that the verse about love never failing is from 1 Corinthians 13.

However, Brandon did a great job of taking that verse and making it into a song that I will forever remember, and tear up to.

The tattoo I got has some of the lyrics to Brandon’s song…these words outline a cross.

It says in a beautiful, cursive font

“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…” 

Those words have run through my head multiple times when I thought everything was just going to crash down around me.

Those words helped me to stay strong…

for my mom…my brothers…my sister…my friends.

Whatever the case may be. I knew that with Love on my side..everything would be alright, and I would make it through.

That is why this tattoo means to much to me…and why this song means so much to me.

So, here is the song, I hope you can see why I fell in love with it.
