‘He pursues me relentlessly’
From the 1st day He saw me,
He loved me and began to pursue me relentlessly.
It didn’t matter that I didn’t love Him back,
He had chosen to love me forever.
He thought of the best way to show me love relentlessly.
Daily He stood and still stands by me.
He understands my pain,confusion and laughter
He understands me better than I understand myself.
Always willing to stop everything just to be there for me.
Yet I never noticed how relentlessly He pursued me.
I just know I have someone who is always at my beck and call;
Never missing a step in finding ways to show how much He loves me.
Even when I pouted because I didn’t get what I want,
He still loved me and pursued relentlessly.
He dropped clues of His love,
By going ahead to help me get my desires.
Then stepping behind the scene to watch me bask proudly in what He has done.
Sometimes I forget that these desires of mine were not met by me but by Him.
Yet He didn’t mind still pursuing relentlessly.
Then He began to drop gifts of love.
He sacrificed Himself for me to live.
He allowed me to find love with another.
He even orchestrated the marriage Himself.
He allowed me to enjoy the pleasures that begets children.
He stayed at the sidelines cheering me on
And still pursuing me relentlessly.
Days and years have gone by;
His pursuit of me has not changed, waned or stopped.
In His eyes I will always be the one He loves
Dropping tidbits of gifts,
Showing me of His relentless love.
Today, I want to tell the world of the One who pursued me relentlessly till I fell in love with Him.
Daily I see droplets of Your undying love.
I hold these droplets close to my heart.
I am falling in love with You daily.
The feeling is so strong, peaceful and content
Thank You for all the gifts You dropped and still drop along the way.
THANK YOU MY LORD AND SAVIOUR FOR PURSUING ME RELENTLESSLY.
