There’s an endless pursuit for our heart
Although we’re outside His will,
And walking in disobedience
In pursuit for our void to fill.
We will attempt to fill that hole
With everything other than Him;
Which explains our hurried lifestyles
With the many stressors this brings.
But His love is overwhelming
And will prompt us to draw near;
As He eradicates our hopelessness
With every anxiety and every fear.
It’s an endless pursuit for our soul
Although He’s sovereign indeed;
He understands our stubborn ways
And how desperately Him we need.
When there’s a stirring in our soul
Most times we want to escape,
But it’s His loving correction and His conviction
Designed for our own sake.
He will never enforce His ways
But will allow our circumstance,
To make us think and to analyse
About the reality of our stance.
When we’re cornered we have an option
To surrender or go our own way,
But if we fail to be reconciled to Him
There’s an eternal price to pay.
He’s the initiator
Of all spiritual pursuits,
And we’re created for His glory
To seek Him and to bear fruit.
The endless pursuit always emanates
From His loving and generous heart;
As He reminds us to be separate
And from societal lies be set apart.
He pursues us relentlessly
But it’s for our own good indeed.
And we cannot escape from reality
That His saving hand we need.
Like a bridegroom awaiting his bride
His pure affections are displayed,
With a commitment and a vow
That is sacred once it’s made.
Everywhere we look
We see God’s attributes in sight;
His wonderful creation
And the beauty of His light.
The endless pursuit is sacred
Undeserved but a gift of grace;
With His mercy that is intertwined
Extended to the entire race.
Because excuses will not be tolerated
Since every trial and every pain,
Has a purpose to draw us near
When our heart is softened and changed.
All things have a purpose
And although we suffer in different ways,
His endless pursuit should encourage us
Through His perfect plan displayed.
