I love it when a song comes on the radio and completely rocks you because it relates to everything going on in your life at the time. I know I reference a lot of songs in my posts, but that’s because music is so easy to relate to. There is always a song that fits perfectly into your life at that very moment. And there are many times that the perfect song comes on when you need to hear it, or someone shares a song with you that totally sums up the situation that you are in. This was my case.
A couple of months ago, I was going through a particular hard time with some things. My dad sent me the new song by Casting Crowns called “God of All My Days” and told me to listen to it. He said it made him think of me and my current situation. The first sentence of the song says, “I came to you, with my heart in pieces and found the God with healing in His hands”. As soon as I heard those words, I burst into tears, because at the time my heart was in pieces. All I could do was cry out to God because I was so hurt and I needed healing that only He could and can give. I have moved on from that time two months ago, but this song still speaks to my heart! And how could it not?! “God of ALL my days”!! Every single day, He in control! The chorus says ” Each step I take, you make a way..”. He makes the way for you. He knows the steps that you are going to take and He helps you along the way.
One of my girls, (one of the Fab Four that I have talked about) had pretty much the week of all weeks this past week. It was just one thing after another and there seemed to be something happening every day, literally. Even yesterday at church, her necklace broke and all the beads scattered on the bathroom floor!! Bless it! Ha! You know how it is ladies, the tiniest thing can set us off, especially after a long day or week! Anyway, in the midst of all of this junk going on for her, He was still God of all of those bad days and still is!! Not only the bad days, but the good days too!! The song talks about the seasons changing for us, but is says that He stays the same!! No matter how many times we stray or fail, or how many times we question what the heck He is doing, He is still the same. He never changes!! How much comfort is that?! Not gonna lie, I got mad at God this past week. I yelled…like actually screamed at Him…more than once. And yet, His love for me never wavered, it didn’t change. He didn’t get mad at me, He didn’t yell back. He just let me yell and cry. Of course I asked for forgiveness a little bit later, and He did, no questions asked. He forgives, always! He loves, always! He is there, always! ALWAYS!
My favorite part in the song are just to words, but they are oh so powerful!! Those words are “relentlessly pursues”. As His children, God never stops pursuing us and we have the choice to choose Him or not. I looked up the word relentlessly. It said “unceasingly intense”. The God of the universe is unceasingly and intensely pursuing you because He wants you to accept Him. He has the best plan for your life and He wants to share that with you! When you have hit rock bottom, when you are heartbroken, when you want to give up because it would be easier, PLEASE know that you have a God that is RELENTLESSLY PURSUING you because He loves you beyond what you could ever imagine!!
He is the God of all your days!!
