Have you found yourself looking for love from people and yet they didn’t return your love?
Have you ever done something so bad that you live in shame and doubt God’s love for you?
Do you have ‘daddy issues’ and have thought no one can love you because your dad rejected you?
“Love never fails. But whether there are prophecies, they will fail; whether there are tongues, they will cease; whether there is knowledge, it will vanish away.”1 Corinthians 13:8 (NKJV)
There is nothing like God’s love. It’s a love that never fails. It’s eternal. God’s love is amazing and He proved it to us on the Cross when Jesus Christ died for us. But even today He continues to show us in small and big ways that His love for us is unfailing.
If you know anything about me you’ll know that I love music (even though I can’t sing to save my life). Both Praise and Worship songs draw me closer to God.
When we need to be reminded about God’s unfailing love for us as His children, songs can help us express that. So here are some wonderful songs that I pray will help us soak in His love for us as His children.
8 Great Songs about the unfailing love of God
“Nobody loves me like You love me, JesusExcerpt from “Nobody loves me like you” by Chris Tomlin
I stand in awe of Your amazing ways
I worship You as long as I am breathing
God, You are faithful and true
Nobody loves me like You“
Fact: Nobody loves us like Jesus Christ does.
We struggle so much sometimes because we are looking for the love only God can give from people who can NEVER, no matter how much they can try, give us the same love God can.
God has changed our life story and brought us from darkness into his marvelous light. Because we are so loved, we can only bow down and worship our God, our Savior.
Even when we are facing mountains, God’s love and power saves us and He never leaves our side. What a Mighty God we serve.
“I am a flower quickly fading
Here today and gone tomorrow
A wave tossed in the ocean
A vapor in the wind
Still you hear me when I’m calling
Lord, you catch me when I’m falling
And you’ve told me who I am
I am yours
Who am I, that the eyes that see my sinExcerpt from “Who am I” by Casting Crowns
Would look on me with love
And watch me rise again?
Who am I, that the voice that calmed the sea
Would call out through the rain
And calm the storm in me?“
We all want to belong. In our families, in our churches, with our friends, in our communities and countries, we have a deep sense of belonging. And God says “We are His”. We belong to Him. His love gives us a sense of belonging.
One of the most powerful attributes about God is He sees us when we are at our lowest. He sees us when we are drowning in shame and sin. Yet, He still loves us.
The Lord of all the earth knows each of us by name. He knows our hurt. He loves us. How awesome and cool is that?!
“There is no disappointment in Your eyesExcerpt from “I am Loved” by Mack Brock
There is no shame there is only pride
I am loved
Father, I’m loved by You”
God loves us so immensely that He’s not ashamed or disappointed in us. He welcomes us with open arms. Just like the Prodigal Son was welcomed back by His Father after wandering, God does the same for us.
His love drives out our fear. In Him we are free from guilt and free from anxiety. We are His children and that’s all that matters.
God’s love changes us and makes us whole again.
“You will never stop fighting for meExcerpt from “Fighting for me” by Riley Clemmons
When I can’t fight for myself
Every word is a promise You keep
Cause You love me like nobody else
You stand up for me in the darkest night
When my faith is weak You’re still by my side
You will never stop fighting for me
You will never stop fighting for me“
Every girl loves her man to fight for her. We can see it in the movies. When a man defends our honor and fights for us, we give our hearts to that man easily.
But no man can fight for us the way God can and does! He never stops fighting for us and no one can love us like He does. Even when we can’t fight for ourselves, He continues to fight for us.
We all need that kind of love, a forever kind of love and that’s exactly the unfailing love we get from God.
God strengthens us when we’re going tough times because He loves us and would do anything for us. He gives us His peace to calm us through life’s storms.
“Your love is kind
Your love is patient
You fill my heart
With so much peace and joy
You make my life feel brand new
Jesus, You’re amazing
You make my life feel brand new
Jesus You love me too much ohExcerpt from ” Excess love” by JJ Houston and Mercy Chinwo
Too much oh
Too much oh
Excess Love oh“
I was introduced to this song last Christmas. It’s a great song and as an African, I appreciate the Nigerian flavor in the song. I hope you’ll love it too!
God’s love for us as His children is too much. Its in excess and it humbles us. His love is patient and kind and really makes our lives brand new.
“Be not dismayed, fear not the darkness
Jesus is here, He walks beside us
Gracious is He, through all our weakness
Forever faithful, forever good
God with us, living inside
Lift up our eyes, to the Maker of HeavenExcerpt from “God with us” by Terrian
He is our help, forever present
Faithful is He, He is our constant
Forever faithful, forever good“
This is my story! My name Tinashe is translated to God is with us. And it’s what’s this blog is about. You can read about it here. God is here. Right here and now.
God walks with us through all of life’s storms. He lives within us. The only constant in our lives. The unfailing love of God means He will never leave us nor forsake us. Praise be to God!!
“You didn’t wait for me to find my way to YouExcerpt from “Love moved first” by Casting Crowns
I couldn’t cross that distance even if I wanted to
You came running after me
When anybody else would’ve turned and left me at my worst
Love moved first
Oh-oh-ohh, oh-oh-ohh, oh-oh-ohh“
A second Casting Crowns song has made it to this list. They’re one of my favorite bands. I saw them live in South Africa years ago and that was one of my most memorable concerts. I find their songs deep with Biblical truths and so authentic.
In this particular song, we are reminded that no matter how far gone we are and no matter how much shame we have, God still loves us.
Left to our own devices, we couldn’t make our way to God. But, He didn’t wait for us to come to Him. He came for us. His unfailing love made the first move. The cross is the proof of God’s move.
“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.“Romans 5:8 (NKJV)
“I’ve heard a thousand stories of what they think you’re like
But I’ve heard the tender whispers of love in the dead of night
And you tell me that you’re pleased
And that I’m never alone
You’re a good good father
It’s who you are, it’s who you are, it’s who you are
And I’m loved by you
It’s who I am, it’s who I am, it’s who I am
I’ve seen many searching for answers far and wideExcerpt from “Good, good Father” by Chris Tomlin
But I know we’re all searching
For answers only you provide
‘Cause you know just what we need
Before we say a word“
Okay, this is another favorite musician of mine. I’ve seen Him twice on stage and what amazing worship nights they both were.
Being someone who didn’t grow up living with my dad, this song reminds me what a good Father we have in God. He is our Father always and an amazing one as well.
When we have that personal encounter and when He touches our hearts, we will know and trust Him. We don’t doubt His love because it’s undeniable and unfailing.
He knows us and protects us. He is all-powerful, all-knowing and full of mercy and grace. His ways are perfect.
Our identity is certain and final: We are loved by God. That’s who we are. Never doubt that.
My Encouragement to you
The truth is God’s love for us is unconditional and unfailing. Nothing can separate us from God’s love. It’s simply amazing. Whenever we doubt His love, I pray these great songs would remind us of the one of a kind love that we can never find from anyone else on this earth.
Lord, I worship you because You are Faithful. You are my Father and my Rock. Nobody loves me like You Lord. Thank you for the Cross of Jesus which is proof of Your love for me. Thank you for always fighting for me. Thank you for the joy and peace that is in You. Remind me of your wonderful love everyday.
In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
