Do they have same thought? What would be the best/correct latin of the above phrases. Want to have them corrected coz im going to get tattooed of whatever the correct phrase to use.

Thanks so much for your help.

Both versions are correct and similar.

"Amor dei gratia semper vivit." Love lives by the grace of god" or "Love lives always by the grace of god."
"Amor in perpetuum vivit dei gratia." Love lives forever by the grace of God." I can't say which one is better, because it would depend on the subtlety of your interests.
