“I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have drawn you with lovingkindness.” Jeremiah 31:3
God’s way of pursuing us is by patiently drawing us to himself. His love letter is laced together with beautiful, soul-stirring evidence that we humans are the object of his affection. He wants us to be his.
One of the best ways to get perspective in your life is to pull back and take in the big picture. Think of all your years as a timeline. I demonstrated this recently at a women’s retreat by holding up a huge ball of yarn and pulling out just the first few inches. “This is your life,” I said. “Only this much. The rest of this yarn represents eternity.” I started pulling the yarn out of the ball. More and more and more. And even more.
Then I went back to the first few inches. “All during this short time of your life, God has been pursuing you. He is pursuing you this very minute and will continue to pursue you. He is not going to stop. What will stop one day is your heart. Your breath.”
