Your Love Is Chasing Me

By Luke Finch (UK Worship Leader)

These mountains are high
But your grace is greater
These valleys are deep
But your healing's deeper
I cannot escape your incessant love
So I won't run, I will wait

It's your love, it's your love
It's your love that saves me
It's your love, it's your love
It's your love that sets me free

My life is a path that keeps on winding
And all I can do is your truth believe in
I cannot explain this depth of longing
But I won't run, I will wait

This burden is light but I feel I'm dying
Losing my life and then yours I'm finding
I cannot contain it, this love's
Compelling me to run, but I will wait

I cannot run
I cannot hide
I can't escape your incessant love
Your love, your love, your love is chasing me

The Lie

God defines success so radically different than I do. If I'm honest with myself, I desire personal gain, wealth and, yes, even fame and personal glory. How wrong I've been to believe the lie and the liar! The world's greatest lie is that I'm here for any personal gain, wealth, power and fame. How shallow and empty I feel when that is my pursuit. God, help me to walk in Your definition of success - my loss, Your weakness, Your death for Your life. To live is Christ. A daily pursuit...thankful for His grace.
