His Pursuit

It comes and goes in waves

One minute I’m feeling like I want to know you more everyday

Then the next, my heart gets led astray

And on the verge of being too far gone I graze


Why do I do this?

I know that without You, I have no purpose

I know that in You, there is a promise

A promise of life, love, and eternal happiness


So, why is my heart not longing to be with yours?

Why does it always seem like my vision is somehow obscured?

Why do I wander from Your hand that’s so secure?

Why do I question You as if You are anything less than pure?


These are questions that I don’t have answers to

But even though I don’t, I know what’s true

I can feel Your yearning for me still so absolute

So I will keep following after You, because You never stopped in Your pursuit



“Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence? If I ascend to heaven, you are there! If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there! If I take the wings the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me.”

-Psalms 139:7-10
