Made for another world

"If I discover within myself a desire which no experience in the world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world." C. S. Lewis

Happy Birthday to me!

Today is my 33 birthday! My posts here are usually about what God is teaching me and the transformation I'm undergoing. That work is often painful and messy and I'm certainly my own worst critic. I have no problem sharing what God is doing in my life and I don't mind admitting when I mess up. But today I thought I'd do something a little different. Today I'm going to celebrate me! I rejoice with the psalmist in saying I am fearfully and wonderfully made, I know that full well! I know that God created me for his glory and as an object of his love, mercy and generosity. When I am being the Beck he created me to be I know he is pleased, hopefully other people are lifted up and I am most satisfied. And while I'm certainly not at the end of this spiritual journey or the maturing process, I'm further down the road than I was last year. So YAY God for giving me life and then giving me your Spirit to live that life!
