makes me think about God's relentless pursuit of a relationship with us. He may not cover us with boils, kill our livestock, pelt us with humongous hail, or turn our entire world into Calaveras County ... at least not in a physical sense ... but I believe that God is relentless in His pursuit of us and His desire for an intimate relationship with us.
I believe that, with the plan He has for our lives, He will continually work in ways to cause us to pursue it. Unfortunately, all too often, pride, lack of faith, lack of vision, lack of courage -- those things hold us back and we give up on God. But, God, with His grace and faithfulness, will never give up on us.
