Intentional Pursuit was conceived 6 months ago as God continued to speak to my heart about being Intentional and deliberate in all I do. It all began last year when we purchased a CD called Deliberate Kids for our children. It really wasn’t the CD (although we love it), but the artists’ (Phil Joel, the former Newsboys bassist) convictions that God used to woo me closer to Him. He and his lovely wife are passionate about living deliberate and Intentional lives. I am a long way from where I want to be in my walk with Christ. The closer I draw to Him…the further I know I need to go, and yet the more of Him he gives.
"Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God,and he will draw nigh to you.” James 4:7-8a
I love the promise that as I pursue God…he in turn,pursues me. I pray that I will live in Intentional Pursuit of my God and Savior every moment of my life. That I can teach my children to live Intentionally Pursuing Christ. I know that I will fall short of my goal at times, but I resolve to get up and begin again. My prayer for my blog…to Glorify my Saviour and King, Jesus Christ…to lift high His great works in my life… and to encourage those who read to live life Intentionally Pursuing God.
