His Love Endures Forever
Do you and your husband have a song? You know, the song that was popular when you were dating, or maybe it played at your wedding? If you are like my husband and me, our song became “our song” after we were married. We were having a heated disagreement while driving home in the car. We sat there in silence because we both refused to budge an inch. Then a Randy Travis song started playing on the radio. It was Forever and Ever, Amen. We must have both been listening to the words because our anger melted at the same time. We realized that forever was a long time, and we were going through a minor hiccup in the road.
When I visited my parents a couple of weeks ago, Forever and Ever, Amen came on the TV. I mentioned that it was mine and Joe’s song, and my mother said hers and Dad’s song was The Little Blue Man. My daughter brought the song up on YouTube, and we listened to it while playing a game. If you’ve never heard this song, it isn’t exactly the traditional love song most of us think of as “our song.” In fact, she pushes him off the roof in the song to get rid of him.
While reading Psalms 136, I realized that this is the Lord’s love song for all of us.
1 Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. His love endures forever.
2 Give thanks to the God of gods. His love endures forever.
3 Give thanks to the Lord of lords: His love endures forever.
4 to him who alone does great wonders, His love endures forever.
5 who by his understanding made the heavens, His love endures forever.
6 who spread out the earth upon the waters, His love endures forever.
7 who made the great lights— His love endures forever.
8 the sun to govern the day, His love endures forever.
9 the moon and stars to govern the night; His love endures forever.
10 to him who struck down the firstborn of Egypt His love endures forever.
11 and brought Israel out from among them His love endures forever.
12 with a mighty hand and outstretched arm; His love endures forever.
13 to him who divided the Red Sea asunder His love endures forever.
14 and brought Israel through the midst of it, His love endures forever.
15 but swept Pharaoh and his army into the Red Sea; His love endures forever.
16 to him who led his people through the wilderness; His love endures forever.
17 to him who struck down great kings, His love endures forever.
18 and killed mighty kings— His love endures forever.
19 Sihon king of the Amorites His love endures forever.
20 and Og king of Bashan— His love endures forever.
21 and gave their land as an inheritance, His love endures forever.
22 an inheritance to his servant Israel. His love endures forever.
23 He remembered us in our low estate His love endures forever.
24 and freed us from our enemies. His love endures forever.
25 He gives food to every creature. His love endures forever.
26 Give thanks to the God of heaven. His love endures forever.
What if we added, “His love endures forever” after everything happening in our week? The baby is crying, and I am ready to pull my hair out, “His love endures forever” I just wrecked the car, “His love endures forever” I lost my job, “His love endures forever” Would that change your thought pattern? Would you start to realize that whatever is happening around is just a hiccup in the road because the Lord is with you and “His love endures forever”?
I hope that knowing that the Lord’s love endures forever (lasting or existing forever, without end or beginning) gives you as much peace as it does me. Nothing you can ever do or ever say will take away His love…IT IS FOREVER AND EVER, AMEN!
To God Goes The Glory!
Have A Blessed Day!
Thanks for this reminder. His love does endure forever!
Hi Tania, I’m new to your blog. Amen! That’s our song, our niece sang it at our wedding. 36 years!
Love your posts, but this one made me laugh! We had a song 58 years ago, but we have no idea what it was🤷♀️🙇🏼♀️
Tania, Thank you so much for this thought on Psalm 136. It blessed me so much, that I wrote the last two paragraphs into my Bible next to Psalm 136 (I have a wide margin Bible, otherwise it wouldn’t have fit!). And, I always write down where or from whom the information came, so now your name is in my Bible! Sometimes I am asked to give a devotional thought in a women’s group, may I use your application of this Psalm?
I love this Meg and I’m honored to be in your Bible. Feel free to use any of my Sunday messages. 😊
That was part of our liturgy recently during worship (“His love endures forever”). So important to remember, especially when we are feeling down. Thank you for posting.
Thank you Tania, this post was a great reminder! I always enjoy your Sunday posts💕
I read this week that whenever something contrary to our liking happens- we should stop and tell God something we are grateful for. Your post reminded me of that. I like the idea of adding God’s love is forever. Focusing our eyes on the blessings and love if God chases our enemy away. Thank you for your posts. Have a blessed week!
SO, SO GOOD!
Tania, I bought the cassette tape for my husband when we were dating! That was our song too! I hardly hear it ever played now., but when I do, it always makes me smile. We will be married 34 years this fall.
Great post too. Blessings, Kim 🌷
Amen!! Sing Praise, sing praise!Forever God is faithful
Thank you for this reminder.
Yes, His love endures forever through good and bad times, his love endures!
Thanks and have a blessed day! 🙏🏻❤️
I look forward to your Sunday posts. I have read this Psalm many times recently. Wonderful suggestion to personalize it for the struggles in my life.
Immediately pulled up Forever (Live) by Michael W. Smith while reading this wonderful post…. Will be my anthem this week in ALL things!🙌🏼 Love it! Thank you for the much needed reminder!❤️
what a great post! This is life changing. Thanks for teaching me
Michael W. Smith has a song based on this scripture – one of my favorites!
Again, God gave you the words that I needed! Tomorrow I find out if I keep my teaching position-a job I felt so strongly that God led me to. If my contract isn’t renewed then I know that God has a different plan and that indeed His love endures forever!! I have no fear of tomorrow because I know God holds it in His hands!!!!
Amen and Amen!
I love your Sunday posts Tania. Thank you for taking the time to do them. Beautiful post.
I will surely have too remember that when life happens, His Love Endures Forever ❤❤
His Love Endures Forever….God is Great!!! Amen
Hello Tania, As always I enjoyed your message and the lesson. Yes, His love endures forever. What a comfort that is.
What a great way to look at the hiccups in the road. Thank you for this post
Than you Tania, I feel refreshed in this beautiful reminder.
Once again, you made an amazing point! I
I am going to try to do this every day this week. I am certain it will change my perspective. would you please consider writing a devotional book? I would love to have your Sunday posts all in one place, and also to be able to give them to friends as a gift.
Yes Beth!! That would be such an amazing gift we could share with our Girlfriends!!!
A book of Tania’s Sunday messages is a great idea! I’d love to have one!
Amen, To GOD goes the glory.
Thank you for your heartfelt thoughts each week! I enjoy reading your posts and reflecting.
It’s 3:30 in the morning and my worrys are keeping me up. Just read you thoughts. Great reminder. Thank you. Amen.
