In the movie Slumdog Millionaire, the main character, Jamal, is separated from his dear childhood friend who, like him, was an orphan. Jamal pursued Latika relentlessly from the time of their separation until they were reunited. And my favorite part upon their reunion as adults? Due to the abuse Latika had experienced in her life, her face was left scarred and Jamal kissed her scar! As I watched the movie Slumdog Millionaire for the third time, I was overcome with the message the Lord was pouring into my heart. I did not find the Lord. He found me! I was the lost one! Looking back on my life it is easy to see the many times He pursued me even when I turned my back on Him. He kept on coming after me! Amazing! His love for me was and is relentless. He is unrelenting in His passion for me. It was that love, that unrelenting love, that led me to repentance and led me to freedom. My desire is to pursue Him and to love Him as relentlessly as He pursues me and loves me...and kisses the scars of my life with His amazing grace. His love for us is relentless...

What man among you, if he has a hundred sheep and has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open pasture and go after the one which is lost until he finds it? When he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, "€Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost!" I tell you that in the same way, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.€ Jesus

Luke 15:4-7 NASB

Relentless - Lyrics

Verse One

I was alone. So far away.

You came for me though I turned away.

You were relentless!

You were relentless!

Lost in my pride. Trapped in my sin.

You came for me again and again!

You were relentless!

You were relentless!

Chorus One

Like a Warrior gone to battle

Fueled by what He's fighting for,

Laying waste to every foe

Until the Truth has been restored!

Like a Father willing to

Lay down His life to save His child,

Lord, You came for me!

You came for me!

Your love a raging fire!

You were relentless!

You were relentless!

Verse Two

I was so blind, so focused on me.

Still You were there waiting so patiently!

You were relentless!

You were relentless!

Used up and worthless, still You traded Your world

'Cause You wanted me like some priceless pearl!

You were relentless!

You were relentless!

(Repeat Chorus One)

Bridge

Even in my sin and even in my darkest shame

You have always been there - always calling out my name!

Your love, like a fire, burning faithful, burning true!

Burning with a passion even when I turned from You!

Chorus Two

Lover Who is jealous with a passion for His bride,

Facing hell with heaven's fury and You will not be denied!

You are Savior and Redeemer Who laid down His very life!

Lord, You came to me!

You came for me and drew me to Your side!

You were relentless!

You were relentless!
