In Pursuit~

All is quiet and still.

The sun, tucked in tight beneath the blanket of the eastern horizon, has yet to stir.

From the hallway, I hear the slow, steady, gentle breathing of my husband. At my feet, the soft sighs of our little canine sweetheart, Sally, as she, too, dreams.

The world, (or maybe just the part of it that makes up my tiny corner), is still asleep.

Here in this moment,

the moment between night and day,

yesterday and today,

past and future,

my soul and my spirit are wide awake with desire:


a unquenchable desire to know you more.


I hear you calling and I want so desperately to open wide the door of my heart and follow after you,

to pursue you,

to walk in your footsteps until I come face to face with you.



I yearn to feel the breath of your Spirit blowing through me,

to hear the rhythm of your heart as my own heart falls into love, beating in unison,

a symphony of one.



My little dog stirs, breathes deeps, turns in restlessness and drifts off once again.


Restlessness.


I grapple with this, too.


How I desire to rest in your love,

to relax into your faithfulness,

to drift off and step out into the dreams you've placed in my inner most being.

But I resist.

I hold back.

I hold on....

on to what?

Nothing and no one is like you, God.

You alone are mighty to save,

tender to heal,

gentle to comfort,

strength to uphold,

wisdom to guide,

hope to fulfill,

glorious to follow.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So the hunger continues,

the ache in me spurred on by my unquenchable desire to know you more.


let's get on with the day

To pursue you,



to walk in your footsteps until I come face to face with you,



to feel the breath of your Spirit blowing through me,



to hear the rhythm of your heart as my own heart falls into love, beating in unison,



a symphony of one.




For you, Oh Lord, are life.
