my pursuit…

So… right now I am in the middle of re-reading a book titled Velvet Elvis by Rob Bell. This has become one of my favorite books. Every time I read it, new things pop out to me. 

So… As I sit here on the floor of my bathroom… one of my favorite reading spots(that’s probably weird, I know)… I am struck by a statement he makes…

“Your job is the relentless pursuit of who God has made you to be. And anything else you do is sin and you need to repent of it.”

For some reason, this time through the book, those two sentences hit me… hit me hard. Am I relentlesly pursuing who God has made me? Am I even half heartadly pursuing it? What does that pursuit even look like? How many things do I do in my day, week, month, year that are ushering me toward who God has made me. How much of my life is just filled with busy work and people pleasing? 

I am finding myself wonder what i am missing out on… How far away from who i am “meant to be” am i living?
