Becoming More Me

This has been on my heart recently (from my Jesus Calling devotional):

Find fulfillment through living close to Me, yielding to My purposes for you. Though I may lead you along paths that feel alien to you, trust that I know what I am doing. If you follow me wholeheartedly, you will discover facets of yourself that were previously hidden. I know you intimately—far better than you know yourself. In union with Me, you are complete. In closeness to Me, you are transformed more and more into the one I designed you to be.

It reminded me of a C.S. Lewis quote I really love:

The more we let God take us over, the more truly ourselves we become …

During the last few years, I’ve watched Him develop my interests and passions, and shape my heart, revealing bit by bit the woman He created me to be. So far, it’s been an incredible adventure — and it’s a journey I look forward to continuing.
