Every girl wants to be pursued by a man.
A man who wants her more than any other.
A man who will do anything to be with her.
A man who is not pursuing her… and five others.
Can you imagine what it feels like to just be one out of those five “others”?
A mere option out of many.
First choice until something better comes along.
Last choice until first choice falls apart.
Wondering when the time will come.
When you will be the pursued one instead of the last option.
And as I was thinking about this recently God spoke to my heart and said “This is exactly how I feel. Like the last option to so many”.
First choice until something more exciting to do comes along.
Last choice until your life is falling apart and you run to Him so He can mend it.
Somewhere on your long list of “to do’s” waiting to be marked off.
And it leaves Him brokenhearted every time.
He gave His all to have a relationship with us… but we don’t give Him fifteen minutes in our day.
He sacrificed His one and only Son for us… but we can’t sacrifice our worldly pleasures that stand in the way of our relationship with Him.
He patiently waits for us to pursue Him, to love Him, to desire Him… and we just pass Him by, leave Him hanging, promising Him that we’ll pursue Him the next day.
And He is left as just another option… for another day.
To be pursued at the end of your life… after you’ve spent all your years on yourself.
To be pursued after you’ve had all your fun with the five “others” that consume your time.
To be pursued when you hit rock bottom.
But God wants to be more than just an option.
He wants to be more than a quick prayer before bed.
He wants to be more than a Sunday morning routine.
He wants to be more than someone you run to only when you have a need.
He wants to be your #1 – above all others.
He wants to be your everything.
Don’t allow God to just be another option throughout your day.
Your #1…. until something better comes along.
Instead… let Him be the One who dictates your every moment.
The One who consumes your thoughts.
The One with whom you share everything that’s on your heart.
Today stop making Him your option… and start making Him your everything.
Be blessed! –Anna… ♥
