One Thing Remains

This song happens to be one of my favorite songs right now. Especially as I head in to my last couple of weeks of school and fell a bit burdened with writing my last paper, the holidays, still trying to get my house in order and the rest of the challenges that life seems to hand to us.

I have one last paper to write.  And a power point to go with it (this part I'm not that concerned about because I actually enjoy putting together power point presentations and talking in front of people).
Yet, trying to fit in the time to write this last paper is proving to be a bit of a challenge.

I want to finish strong and know that I did my best.  And it really didn't help me when a good friend at work said to me yesterday..."Did I ever tell you about my last paper?"  Then she goes on to tell me how she had a 4.0 GPA going in to the end but didn't do so hot on her last assignment....ended up leaving her with a lower GPA.  Really??? Did you have to share that with me??? What kind of friend does that??  I'm sure she was just sharing what happened to her but it gave me a momentary pause to think, what if that happened to me?

So I regroup, and refocus my head and listen to songs such as this.
Especially the part that sings:

"Higher than the mountains
That I face
Stronger than the power
Of the grave
Constant in the trial and the change
One thing remains...

Your love never fails
It never gives up
It never runs out on me"

It helps to remind me of where I stand and where my hope is.  What is really the most important thing here.  It isn't some last paper that I need to write - rather my hope is in Jesus alone and what He thinks of me and has in store for me.

So, off I go to tackle that last paper....
