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.
