“Strive” is the key word; we are doing are best to be who God made us to be. Some folks seem to get there, most of us get pretty close, but it’s the striving that matters more than the arriving.
Each of us is a weird and wonderful expression of God’s image. None of us are the whole picture; we all need each other so that we can catch a glimpse of what God is like. And when we strive to be who God made us to be, those glimpses combine together to reveal the God who loves us as we were made.
Keep sharing, striving, and being the wonderful person you are!
