In Pursuit



It has been said that,
“those who pursue God,
 are already in His hand!”
So why would one chase,
The One in whom they stand?

Can we find something,
that we have missed?
Or is this idea of chasing God,
something to be dismissed?

King David wrote,
 “As the deer pants for the water,
 so my heart longs for You!”
Could this chase of God,
not be something new?

Why would you chase,
Him that you’ve found?
Less your pursuit,
was aimed,
 higher than ground!

Is pursuing God,
more...
Like that of the heart?
A finding of that relationship,
That fulfills, ones empty part!

Perhaps our chase,
 is not so much finding Him,
 As catching His eye!
Just letting Him know,
 He’s more,
 To the chasers,
 than the God of the bye and bye!

He is constantly,
 in our thoughts and our heart,
 and we wonder His thoughts,
 even in our walk?
 He dominates our words,
Even as we talk!

So chase on all of you,
 Who have broken roots!
As you chase The God,
Who longs for those...
 in pursuit!

Monday

Encounter Him!


In our Christian lives,
We seek glimpses of God.
We seek the tangible touch,
Like a lighting rod.

We seek a presence and power
 We cannot explain!
We seek the wonders of His hand,
Brought by His Name!

Can we become like Jacob?
 Camped at a well!
Not satisfied by who we are,
In this flesh that we dwell?
 
Could we meet God?
Upon His ground!
And be willing to be changed by Him,
 That our lives...

 are not what He found!

Would we hold on To Him?
 Not willing to let go!
Until what we were before,
Not longer showed!

Would we be willing,
To die to what we are?
To be reborn,
With a hip,

  disfigured and scared!

No longer could we be,

 or walk the same!
For to encounter Him...

 upon His ground,
 leaves the flesh as lame!
