Return directions in hand, I had driven out of town to be her “person” at the wedding of someone she loved. The wedding ceremony was moving and the reception fun. I had expected to return home early the next day but she was invited to a breakfast with the couple and their family, and since I was her ride back, and she was my “person” aka “sister-of-another-mother” I agreed to go along.
The problem was, I did not have directions to the location where the breakfast was being held. The solution was for me to follow her daughter who knew the location. So I did, but I think she forgot at times that I was following her. I, on the other hand, did not have such lapses of memory. I was following hard after her. Keeping her car in sight. Praying that no cars came between us. Remember I did not know where I was going. It was not a casual pursuit in any way. I allowed nothing to distract me. I was focused and I was following as close as I could.
I wonder, if I were to observe myself following Him, if I would see the same level of intensity and focus as I had that day. I want to be able to say as David did, “My whole being follows hard after You and clings closely to You.”
