The Terrible Thing

December 18, 2012

The terrible thing, the almost impossible thing, is to hand over your whole self–all your wishes and precautions–to Christ. But it is far easier than what we are all trying to do instead. For what we are trying to do is to remain what we call “ourselves,” to keep personal happiness as our great aim in life, and yet at the same time be “good.” ― C.S. Lewis

    I was not aware until now that C S Lewis knows me so well.


  2. Love this quote…it actually hurts us to not grow and let Christ transform us. Really need to hand everything over.

    It is so difficult to do. I keep taking things back.
