“Christian perfection consists in the union of our will with the will of God.”
-St. Maximilian Kolbe
It’s a tough pill to swallow when we first start to wade out of the shallows and into the deeper water...
My will, my desires, my wants are now irrelevant. Thy will be done, not mine.
It’s not easy to let go of the reins. Especially when we’ve had a hold of them our entire lives.
But I’m convinced that our best laid plans pale in comparison to was God has in store for us.
We were created with a purpose and a plan. It is in fulfilling that purpose by aligning our will with His, that we will be MOST ourselves and MOST fulfilled.
A tool is most a tool when it is in the hands of a carpenter... so it goes with us and our Creator.
