music monday// pursued

when i think about the love that Daddy God has for me, i just can't fathom it all. times when certain circumstances cause me to think i am all alone down here and undiscovered, His love letters remind me that He knows me, He sees me and He loves me! me, a little jar of clay, having His breath of life to move and have my being. like, He knows the number of hairs on my head! [matthew 10:30]. He knit me in my mother's womb and knows the intricate details of my life. [psalm 139:13]. when i read the whole of psalm 139, i begin to get a tiny glimpse of the depths of the love He has for me and you. 
He wakes me with the sun seeping up through the clouds, a vibrant red. He created the salt-sprinkled sky, filled with stars to twinkle at night, He makes the sun warm and buttery and bathes me in its red-gold light at sunset. He makes the wind whisper and caress my face at the sound of beautiful-colored birds tweeting melodies during the day. He makes the choppy sea of sky a bright blue to mesmerize me. He creates the sweet smell of flowers to scent the air and clothes them in lovely, bright petals to lavish His love on me. He makes the mountains a looming lavender in the distance. He creates assorted fruits and food for my enjoyment and pleasure. He is bendable light, He shines every corner of my day.

and the shocker of it all, He allowed His Son to die to cleanse away my sins, to purchase me back to Himself! [gasps!] i can't help but pause and ponder Him and His love. He does all these things to dazzle me and woo me, like a man in love woos and pursues his beloved lady. He's chasing after me. the least i can do is live for Him and let my life be the proof of His love.

i loved the song the first time i heard it from my fav youtube channel- the anima series. it's short, sweet and simple. the lyrics ring so true! oh, and the sweet little munchkin in the video is so adorable!

my Daddy, His arms are wide open. created, just to get to know Him. 
basking, in the love of my Father. all He asks of His sons and daughters is:

 open, open up and let Me in. open, open up and let Me in. open, open up and let Me in.
i'm being pursued. i'm being pursued. i'm being pursued. i'm being pursued.

all He wants is my heart, it's all He's wanted from the start. there's no way i can resist when there's no greater love than this.

i'm being pursued. i'm being pursued. i'm being pursued. i'm being pursued.
 open, open up and let Me in. open, open up and let Me in. open, open up and let Me in.

"here I am! I stand at the door and knock. if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with Me." revelations 3:20

"this is how God showed His love among us: He sent His one and only Son into the world that we might live through Him. this is love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sen His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins." 1 john 4:9-10

"see what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! and that is what we are! the reason the world does not know us is that it did not know Him." 1 john 3:1

"for God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." john 3:16

"greater love has no man than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends." john 15:13

"I have loved you with an everlasting love, I have drawn you with unfailing kindness." jeremiah 31:3

"since you are precious and honored in My sight, and because I love you, I will give people in exchange for you, and nations in exchange for your life." isaiah 43:4

do you feel a tug on your heart? that's Him! open up and let Him in once you still have His breath of life in you. open the door of your heart and allow the God of the cosmos pursue and dazzle you with His love. His love is as sure as the sun. ever-present. constant. He wants a relationship with you, He's chasing after you. allow yourself to be captivated by His love and be swoon. ;)

xoxo, gen delali.
