my friend Julie just recently started blogging… today, in fact. and she really hit it out of the park with her first entry.
here’s what she had to say. if you like it… give her some love.
So I’m guessing I’m probably one of the only people to ever felt convicted by a billboard. I was driving to work today and there was a billboard for KU Med. I know what you’re thinking…how did that convict you. The billboard said “I’m relentlessly pursuing a cure for cancer”. Relentlessly Pursuing. It made me think…what am I relentlessly pursuing? We all know what these words mean, but for refreasher–
Relentless: that does not relent; unyieldingly severe, strict, or harsh; unrelenting; Steady and persistent; unremitting
Pursue: to follow close upon; go with; attend;to strive to gain; seek to attain or accomplish
Again I ask myself what am I pursuing. I can honestly say, I am not relentless in my pursuit of God. Yes I pray, yes I study His Word, but am I relentless in it. I have to say no. So now I search for the next step.
That my friends is how a simple billboard can convict. Never underestimate God’s power and ways to get your attention.
