As C.S. Lewis said…, “until you have given up your self to Him you will not have a real self.” And yet, God does not then toss us aside. He restores us – the real us. As he heals our inner life, he calls us to rise to the occasion of our lives. Once we surrender ourselves, he gives us back our true selves. In fact, the most important journey any person will take is the journey into becoming herself through the love of God. It is a journey that will require courage, faith, and above all the willingness to grow and let go. The journey of becoming is one of increased self-awareness coupled with a surrender of self.
