I have not always found it easy to trust Christ. I wanted to, yet most of my teen years I held back and kept control. When Christ finally won me over as a late teen, I continued to struggle with my identity in him. Even though I had trusted him for my salvation I nonetheless found it hard to let go and trust his heart.
Over the years, he has wooed me as a lover desiring a relationship with me. So often I played the unfaithful lover, who would go my own way, yet he has never stopped pursuing me.
I have felt the loneliness of the times he has had to withdraw from me (Psalm 131). How he must have hurt when he had to chastise me, because of my rebellion and how he must have ached for me to pursue him (Matthew 23:37).
Oh, the sweetness of the assurance of his love when I drew near to him he lovingly drew near to me. (James 4:8)
Over the years, I have learned to lean into his arms and to rest with abandon giving wholly to him and not holding back.
Christ is pursuing you! He loves you! He longs for you to embrace him with full abandon.
I want you to experience a love affair with him, to feel the love and safety his embrace provides. I want you to know he is faithful, he is trustworthy and you can trust his heart.
