Relentless Pursuit

The stress of everything that has been going on with my life has finally gotten to me making me break down in tears.  I am not one to show my emotions that aren't anything but Happy and also annoyance. (I am happily annoyed all day erryday)


I have been so strong about everything for so long, that I really feel like if I publicly put out there how upset I really am, and that I have cried several times that it will show weakness and show that I'm not as strong as everyone thinks.

I've felt so vulnerable lately that I have taken my eyes off the most important thing; God.

I was able to hand things over to him completely before my surgery, so why am I stopping now? He carried me through the fire and the floods before, so I know for a fact that he will do it again.


 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
 -Jeremiah 29:11


Satan will jump at any chance he can get to fill our minds with discouragement and worldly hopes. But when that happens, we need to fill our hearts and minds with the love that Jesus has for us. We have to again and again give what ever situations we are in to God and trust that he will work everything out (Spoiler alert: He has and always will)

My absolute favorite verse in the world is Isaiah 43:2 and it says:

"When you pass through the waters,
    I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
    they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
    you will not be burned;
    the flames will not set you ablaze."


Sometimes I will forget and take my eyes off my path for a minute or two, and something unpleasant will happen and this verse will pop back in my head. This verse for me is a constant reminder that God has my back 100% whether it be good or bad.

This is the song that came on my hillsong radio station and that it was super fitting for my thoughts. So that's where the title came from. (also Kim Walker is Queen)

  1. Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using? I'm going to start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask! all of craigslist
