I am really tired this evening after traveling all day from Texas... but God is continuing to whisper something to me, in my heart, my spirit. And while its an obvious thing to many, and even to me, I keep hearing that word "Pursuit"...and He's starting to give me this story, this picture, this....something. I will keep listening until its all formulated and comes out in a narrative here... But I am reminded so often of how in my own life, He has used circumstances and situations to show me exactly what He longs for, aches for from each of us and that is truly our PURSUIT of Him. For many years, most of my life, I pursued something...not quite knowing what or how to get it... but in the end I know it has been love, plain and simple. Its true..we have a bad habit of "looking for love in all the wrong places" and boy, where it can lead us... can be detrimental on so many levels, even unto death. He wants us to pursue Him, with every ounce of energy, passion, and effort we have in us, to run after Him, to chase after Him... He wants us to fall absolutely in love with Him. For a long time I did that, with various things, people, situations... I wanted what I wanted and felt like I needed. Some of those pursuits pay off in various ways, but the pay off isn't always exactly what we intended, or hoped for...thought it would be. And we end up finding that we have made some pretty bad investments, with no return...or further in debt - mentally, physically, spiritually... its a bad deal. The story and testimony of Jesus Christ, is the greatest Love story ever told, ever lived and is still going strong today. Unfortunately, He is still being rejected, ridiculed, mocked, spat on, beaten, and it goes on and on. We must get to know Him, in order to Love Him. We must pursue Him in whatever way we can, with what we know, and what He reveals. I am sure there will be more about PURSUIT... but thats what He wants, and what we need...
