Speaking of uncut pages

Rest in this:
It is His business to lead, command, impel, send, call, or whatever you want to call it. It is your business to obey, follow, move, respond, or what have you…
The sound of “gentle stillness” after all the thunder and wind have passed will be the ultimate Word from God.

Jim Elliot

The more we get what we now call “ourselves” out of the way and let Him take us over,
the more truly ourselves we become.
There is so much of Him that millions and millions of “little Christs,”
all different, will still be too few to express Him fully.
He made them all.

He invented—as an author invents characters in a novel—all the different people that you and I were intended to be.
In that sense our real selves are all waiting for us in Him.
It is no good trying to “be myself” without Him.
The more I resist Him and try to live on my own,
the more I become dominated by my own heredity and upbringing and surroundings and natural desires.

C.S. Lewis
