The Chasing God

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

“God is so bent on blessing, He chases. 
God’s not out to get you — He’s out to give to you.
And God’s blessings don’t pursue temporarily —
but relentlessly.”
*Ann Voskamp
 
 
The chasing God -
 
ever in pursuit
of the child
dashing off
in all directions
but one
… His
 
Chasing
not to trip us up
or spoil our dreams
but to bless
 
to bless us
with relentless grace
measureless goodness
and abundant mercy
 
oh
that we would be
caught
in the outstretched arms
of the chasing God
 
 
“Only goodness and faithful love will pursue me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
as long as I live.”
Psalm 23:6 HCSB
