E.E. Cummings said, "It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are." Courage to step into becoming who we are made to be. I shudder to think how many people aren't. Think of it...living a manufactured life that isn't the one they are meant for. A life just short of the dreams, desires, passions, adventures, missions...a life outside of one's calling and purpose. For me personally, I believe that each human life has its own unique message. A gift that each person was meant to share with the world...one for which it's lack of release causes all to suffer. How many messages are left unread...?
Hmm. Hmm. Hmm.
The path to purpose? I've come to believe it is in surrender. In fact, I would argue that our degree of becoming is directly related to our degree of surrender. Destiny found in the laying down of all of the things we carry (burdens, idols, anger, hurts, etc.) and opening our arms to the Father's embrace. It can be a tough road, but it's one that leads to a launching pad.
Oh the fullness, peace and hope we can find...becoming.
