One thing I am continually struck by in the vocational work of formation that I do is that life with Christ does not look one particular way for everyone.
Each person is unique. Each person’s story is unique. The way each of us were formed by God to be is unique. The way each of us were formed by our own particular lives is unique.
Jesus wants to walk with you in your own particular life.
He wants to be with you as you are.
If you are an extrovert, he wants to connect to your extroversion. If you are musical, he wants to connect to that musicality in you. If you are quiet and introverted, he wants to know you in that quiet, introverted way that you are.
You don’t have to be someone else.
You don’t have to be other than he already made you to be.
This is exciting for someone like me, whose life’s work is to walk alongside others and pay attention with them to their lives and the presence and movement of God in their particular life.
Every conversation is different. It is absolutely glorious and beautiful and amazing. I love to see how God is speaking and forming each person in unique and utterly creative ways.
What are the particulars of your one particular life? How can you invite Jesus into those particularities today?
