“Holy” by United Pursuit, featuring Will Reagan is a powerful song about relationship with God and connection to Him. It was the inspiration of the poem above, “Relationship.”

When people talk about “walking away from God (or church)” it doesn’t compute for me. There is a huge disconnect. I think it’s because I have a thriving relationship with God. If you know me, I don’t do “pretend” or “fake.” When I was in college there was a struggle I had, connecting to God so I prayed a bold prayer. I asked God to show himself to me. I wanted more and deeper. I was at a point where I could have walked away, but instead I asked God to reveal Himself to me.

He showed up. He wrecked me like I’ve never been wrecked before or since. In a good way.

It started a completely new way of “walking with God” that has propelled the rest of my life and my relationship with Him. It’s not made up. It’s not a fantasy. It is a real relationship with my Creator, the God of my soul.

By no means am I perfect. I have lot of struggles still and failures. But I do my best to put my relationship with God first above all things and I seek Him with my whole heart. He never disappoints. He always shows up. He is always there and I don’t know what I would do without Him in my life. He walks with me through my ups and downs, struggles and successes.



  1. Beautiful song. I have a tumultuous relationship with God: sometimes I feel like He’s tormenting me, or that He’s angry at me. Sometimes I feel like I can’t trust Him. But overall, I’m glad I believe in Him.
