Velvet Elvis

I just finished reading the book 'Velvet Elvis' by Rob Bell. It was an amazing book about how our faith is painted. Some of the highlights that I took away were...

114 - 'Your job I'd 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.'

116 - kill your superwhatever. The person I am convinced I am supposed to be. The image of how I am supposed to look, act, work, play, talk, etc. The negative voice shouting on my ear that I am not good enough.

166 - Why blame the dark for being dark? It's far more helpful to ask why the light isn't as bright as it could be.
