let god come to you.

I don’t hear many stories about people chasing God. I mean, not in a bad way.  However, Angie Smith insists that many Christians are using the wrong approach to reach God in her self-help titled Chasing God, and it makes sense to me now.

This resource is for those of you who have this idea of what your relationship with God should look like, but aren’t able to achieve it. In a way, you are chasing Him, trying to become closer, but it’s not working. Smith states that “when we spend more of our time searching for assurance than we do acting out of belief, we are chasing God”. Trusting in God and his purpose for your life will stop the chase that leaves many Christians doubting God’s love for them, showing the difference between religion and a relationship when it comes to our Heavenly Father. Smith weaves in her life experiences with the scripture stories beautifully throughout the book, and she’s a funny girl to boot!
