high pursuit.

I was reading a book (Praying for your Future Husband by Gunn and Goyer) earlier this week, and a sentence stopped me in my tracks. I underlined it, starred it, and pondered it a while before going back to reread it.
"The inexplicable beauty of God's forever love is that, as the Relentless Lover, He never stops pursuing us because He always wants us back."
It blew my mind.
I know that God loves me, but I think in the midst of a busy life, I forgot what that really means.
He is actively pursuing me. His love doesn't change depending on my actions, or lack of. His love doesn't run out. It's always there. It is constant, even when it doesn't make sense, I forget about it, refuse to acknowledge it, or don't feel it. He loves me.
I know this isn't a new concept, but I just needed to be reminded of this. I needed to take the time, to sit at the feet of Jesus, and rest in His love for me.
"I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love. With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself." - Jeremiah 31:3
"We know what real live is because Jesus gave up his life for us." - 1 John 3:16
"I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me." - Proverbs 8:17
"For the Lord your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.” -  Zephaniah 3:17
Resting in His love, M :)
