My son came home from his 3 month internship at the International House of Prayer in Kansas City full of new songs. I am thankful that the Lord is growing him as a musician and worship leader. I couldn’t be more proud.
He also brought home a new CD by Jaye Thomas entitled “Intimate“. I’ve been listening to it over and over again. Song #2, “Pursuit of You” struck a chord with me, as it talks about our pursuit of God, and God’s pursuit of us. Here are some of the words to the song:
“You’re chasing me. I’m chasing you.
I’m being pursued by the very love that I pursue.”
In pursuit of You.
Nothing else matters, nothing will do.
And I have nothing worth clinging to.
I’ll be Your Bride, come and be my Groom.
I keep on running, chasing after you
Its my glory, You are worth the pursuit,
So I will run after you!
This song got me thinking about how, for as much as I pursue God, His pursuit of me is so much greater, so much fiercer. He loves me, with an everlasting and relentless love. He will never stop pursuing me!
I have a picture in my mind of me running after God, but at the same time He’s running after me. We are literally running in circles, me trying to catch Him, and Him running after me. There is no where for me to go but directly into His arms of Love!
Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life,
and I will live in the house of the LORD forever.
How about you my friend? Are you running hard after God? He’s running hard after you! Stop, just for a moment, and allow Him to catch you!
