Sunday Stillness – 1 Corinthians 13:8
In all things we need love. That is why love never fails – it never gives up. Jesus taught us that.
However, in this world we get side-tracked into thinking that we can control things; that people must do things our way.
Instead God calls us to do things His way and to delight in it.
I delight to do Thy will, O my God (Psalm 40:8, KJV).
Do you or I foster the “meek and quiet spirit” or a “spirit of self-satisfaction”? (from Oswald Chambers).
Let’s check this week:
- our mannerisms
- our attitude
- our words
- little things we do for others
Are we doing these things? Remember what the Lord requires of us:
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God (Micah 6:8, NIV).
Here is a worship song that will always remind you that LOVE NEVER FAILS.
It is called One Thing Remains by Bethel Church
We never have to be afraid – one thing remains
Your love never fails, it never gives up.
Today is #SundayStillness.

Read the Sunday Stillness rules if you are new here.
I would appreciate if you would link only about God’s Word. If you have a linky party that’s okay if it is about the same thing. Please no sales or prizes. I want this to be friendly but I must ask you to abide by the rules. Others want to read God’s Word – and that is what I would like the links to be about. I must take down the links that don’t follow the rules. Thanks so much.

Thank you for this post… in this “love month” I am doing my best to focus on LOVE…. not just loving others….but digging into God’s word on HIS LOVE FOR ME. My friend at http://www.raisingfuturesthers.com is doing a month of devotions on The Relentless, Transforming, Redeeming Love of God. Follow along if you get the chance.
Love the verse – humming right now this song : “He has shown you, O man, what is good and what the Lord requires of you” … thankful to God for His Joy and Love!
Blessings to your week, Janis!
Thanks so much. As you can see it has taken me until Wednesday to respond to comments. But I know I do what is required of me – love never fails.
Blessings to you too,
Love the post, love the scripture and LOVE that song!! It makes me happy to know His love never fails, never gives up, and NEVER RUNS OUT on me! Thank you for this encouraging and uplifting reminder today Janis! ♥
Thank you so much. Yes to know that no matter what He loves us – and we can count on that all the time.
The verse from Micah…one of my favorites!
Me too Marty,
One of the first memorized too.
