The Pursuit

What does pursuit means?
A following with a view to reach, accomplish, or obtain; endeavor to attain or gain; as, the pursuit of knowledge; the pursuit of happiness or pleasure.

Hm, let's see. There's a story of this girl who cries a lot for really, really sad reasons. And those really, really sad reasons she wants to forget, so she left her place, finding peace in some other land, but to no success. No matter where she goes, these really, really sad reasons haunt her, taking years off her life. No joy, no smile at all. Hope seems lost in her. But a tinge of sunshine seemed to grow out of her. Because of the gift of Grace, something in her was awakened. Her entire self changed, grew, desired for all things good and Godly. Sinner, yes, but consecrated by His love. She's a whole new creation. She was captivated by the new presence in her life. It's all bright, she thought. Bright, colorful, peaceful. Beauty was redefined, Paradise was regained. She's like that sea lion who found the ocean again after a long time spent in the desert.

2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away;
behold, all things have become new.

Now she can really be true to who she is. No more pretensions, fantasies, dark sides and whathaveyous.
It's pure love, baby. If ever she'd cry again, it would be happy tears for sure.
