Pursuing God

entwined heartsA wonderful thing about God is that we pursue and apprehend him continuously.  If we only pursued and never apprehended, we would grow weary and discouraged.  But because God is infinite, we can continuously pursue and apprehend him for eternity.  What is even more awesome is that God pursues us.  God pursues us with his love, his grace, his mercy, his loving kindness.  So we are in an infinite, but ever changing, loop of pursuing, being pursued, catching, and being caught.  I picture it like this –  a child and their father running and chasing each other – laughing as they “catch” each other.  In the same way, our heavenly Father overtakes us with his love, and we fall into his arms as a child with loving abandon.  Can’t you see him laughing with us? How truly magnificent and wonderful our Father is.
