Your love never gives up on me.

Sometimes I struggle to let things go. It's something I am working on. You know when you feel like you've dealt with, mastered a situation, and moved past it, but then you see something that instantly reminds you of the situation and you feel angry all over again?

That happened to me today. I was hurt a lot by my previous boss. It's something I can't/don't want to reveal intimate details about on the blog, but I felt like I was handling the situation really well, but then today I saw something that reminded me of the hurt and I felt so angry again.

As hurtful and hard as the situation was, God definitely use that situation to mold me in many ways- as a teacher, coworker, professional, and helped shape me spiritually. It was a huge lesson for me in letting things go, which was something I needed.

That instance today was a vivid reminder that no matter how good I think I am doing, I NEED Jesus and will ultimately fail without trusting in Him.

On the way home, I heard this song, and it really struck me today. Your love NEVER gives up and it NEVER runs out on me. Always. No matter how many times I've messed up. Thank you, Jesus! 

"One Thing" by Jesus Culture

Higher than the mountains that I face

Stronger than the power of the grave
Constant through the trial and the change
One thing remains
One thing remains

Your love never fails it never gives up it never runs out on me x3

On and one and on and on it goes
It overwhelms and satisfies my soul
And I never ever have to be afraid
One thing remains

In death and 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

Today I am thankful for my current boss and that I got to love on my kids again after a long break!
