Still

In November of 2011, God spoke to me clearly. He was in full pursuit of me. He has always pursued me but this time I knew it. As a man pursues the love of his life, God pursued my heart. As I left church one evening, I heard Him speak the following words: “I did it because I had to have you”.

Nine words that brought peace in the midst of confusion. Nine words that soothed my aching heart. Nine words that made me feel as if I was the only girl in the world. After all I had said and felt, His Love remained.

He wanted me. God wanted me and only me. After everything I had said and done, I was still the first thing on His mind.

 Still

You want me still
After all I’ve done
After all I’ve said
You want me still

Even when I resist
You still persist
You want me still

You call my name with a love
that never changes
But changes me from the inside out
Love replacing fear, distrust, and doubt
You want me still
Because you love me still

Now this is endless
Relentless
I can’t live without it
Powerful love

You want me still.
