Chasing God by Angie Smith

Angie Smith is a woman after God's heart. I was blessed to read, "Mended", and was totally blessed. I was excited to receive a copy of her newest gem, "Chasing God". 

"The goal of this book is not to present you with a formula for living out Christianity. It's to offer my thoughts on the difference between looking for Him and looking at Him." Angie Smith

"You chase Me because you trust your own legs more than you trust Me. You chase Me because you can feel the air in your lungs, not because you want to breathe true life. And as long as you can chase, you will get a stay. You maintain part-ownership of our relationship. You would run forever in the wrong direction if it meant your flesh didn't have to admit the truth. You chase because it makes you feel like you can." Angie Smith

Angie shares in a transparent way. She shares her story. Her intimate walk with Jesus and all she has learned about the chase. She no longer chases after God, but follows Him. There is a difference. This book brought tears to my eyes as I found myself in these words. I too have chased. 

We are to have an intimate relationship with Jesus. Spending time with Jesus and reading His Word gives us power and strength. 

"If we are choosing not to make time for daily meditation on Scripture, we are simply not convinced it has the power it claims to have." Angie Smith

"In other words, we cannot help but to desire to be more like Him. Once we understand the love He has poured out, we are bound to follow through with action." Angie Smith

I LOVED this book. Yes, those special reads that set you on a new course. Those that bring you closer to Jesus. That impact your life to move, to act. This isn't one to read quickly through, but one to take your time with pen in hand. It will be one to go back to again and again. 

If your on the search for a great guide in motivating you to live intentional this was written just for you. A great addition to your journey with Jesus. 

This book was a gift from B&H Publishing for sharing my review with you.
