From somebody's trash to my treasure. I like to re-style & re-create what was once a cast off. Isn't that what Jesus does with us?

In Hot Pursuit

Dearest Friends  --
I've just learned something so wonderful I had to share it with you! 
Like, as soon as I read it!
Think back to when you were pursued. Chased. (not by a dog or police man. Think good thoughts!)
Stick with me here, this is so good I'm a bit giddy about it!
Are you remembering a guy you were sweet on when you were in school or college? Wasn't it wonderful to get his phone calls? His notes.  How about when he would drop by or give you unexpected surprises?
Weren't those times pure joy. You looked forward to his next advance. And the next.
And he was in hot pursuit!
Well, get this. God is in hot pursuit of you and me. Read Psalm 23:6 . "Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life..."  To follow in the Hebrew is the word radaph. It means to run after. To chase. To pursue. TO HUNT YOU DOWN!
Are you getting this? God's goodness, his love (HE IS LOVE!!!) is pursuing you. He's hot on your trail.
Let this sink in ladies. Meditate on this. Rejoice in this very thought.
Our God, the very God of the universe seeks to follow you passionately. He loves you!! 
WOOHOOOOOO!!! Are you squeeling with me?
This is going to carry me through the next several days!! Maybe weeks. I'm like that.
Be blessed!
