It’s an unwavering truth that love is everlasting. And even though I’m typing these words, alone in my office, and you’ll read them in similar circumstances, I can almost see you shaking your head, “No. Love is definitely not everlasting.”
But I say yes. And I can prove it’s an unwavering truth.
But, here’s a caveat. I absolutely can NOT prove that love does not waver if you refuse to listen to reason. Yes, reason. And logic. Not feelings.
You love yourself. Right? Sure you do. And that’s why you go out into the world to work. So you can interact with people and buy the things you need. And so you can eat, drink, and be comfortable.
And you love your family. So you make sure they have food, clothes, and a safe roof over their heads. You love your parents. So you visit them to see if they need anything.
Love helps you navigate the unknown. Love helps you to help others. And love is the only “thing” in all of existence that grows in you as you give it away.
Yeah, hate might conquer the day…now and then…or even way more often. And hate might destroy your country and its populace. It might even destroy the world one day. But it doesn’t conquer all.
And it won’t last forever.
Only love conquers all.
Here’s how I ‘splained it years ago, right here on the ol’ TonyFunderburk.com website…
“Love created this planet. Love made the green trees, grass, and herbs of the fields. And love designed an atmosphere ideal for both plants and creatures. Plus, loveÂ made sure that both the intake of oxygen and the exhale of carbon dioxide would occur and be optimally functional.
Love planted a paradise with an open door and then made a way for us to enter in againÂ after we so foolishly walked out.
So, love understands our exercises in futility and yet stands waiting with open arms to comfort and reassure us.
…love does not exist apart from God.”
He risked it all when He gave us our own will. Yet, being the master planner, calculator, and designer…God knows some of us will choose to love Him in return. He’s willing to give His love to everyone who ever lived for the sake of the relatively few who’ll respond to it.
If you’re one of those who simply won’t believe until you’ve actually seen…
One day you will.
In fact, everyone will. The Creator of the universe (and everything in it) will come back to Earth one day. And He’ll cast aside the rulers of this world and of darkness, and show once and for all…
…true, living, everlasting love conquers all.”
YouÂ seek the answers to the mysteries of life
But how much truth can you handle
And as for me, well, there is only One Fire
That lights the flame on my candle
Everlasting and everywhereâ€¦
Heâ€™s Everlasting and everywhere
(And that’s the unwavering truth)
And speaking of Everlasting and Everywhere, that’s another song on the CD I’ve been talking about for a couple of days. Now, I’m calling it theÂ Do Right 25th Anniversary Cheryl Care Package sale. And itâ€™s to help a woman (a pastorâ€™s wife for over 20 years) who just lost her husband. I only have 79 first-run CDâ€™s left of my first Christian CD called â€œDo Right.â€ And you can see more about it and get your limited edition copy at the link below.
