Pursued



Pursued

He's coming after me
Intent upon destroying
Hopes and daring dreams
With taunts and hurts deploying
That I might finally be
Submitted to a fate
Of his askew creation
Upon the Lord, I wait
The truth, one cannot quell
From Living Waters' well
I quench my searching thirst
The last is now the first

  1. Thought-provoking poem, Martha. The enemy may hunt us down, but isn't it incredible to think the God of everything pursues a relationship with each of us? It blows my mind. Once we surrender our lives to the Lord, NOTHING can separate us from His love.

  2. You are absolutely right, Beckie - nothing can separate us from the Lord's abiding love! The enemy may hunt us down and pursue us, but he can't win. This poem comes from feeling much more under attack than I have over this last year, and the Lord helped me to generate an answer.
    Love and blessings!

  4. Martha, this is interesting...satan does come after us to attempt to bring us down, to destroy us. At the same time, God pursues us--He pursues us first (that grace that comes before) as we pursue Him.

    Love and blessings!

  12. I love it that, although the enemy of our soul pursues us, the lover of our soul is also seeking us and He is greater!

    Have a peaceful and happy Thanksgiving!
