He is intense in his pursuit for me. Me! He never let’s go of me. He has used every moment. Every tear. Every disappointment. Every choice. Every smile. Every hope. Every dream. Every pain. Every thought. Every fear. Every beat of my heart. Every word. Every desire. Every thing…

I am reminded that not one detail of my life is wasted with God. Every experience is part of the special story he is carefully writing for me. Everything is important to him. Nothing is wasted. Nothing is edited out. Nothing is forged. And suspense is built into every turn of the page.
