Equus Passage 6/4

Your most fundamental obedience to God may be acceptance of yourself – yourself as you are, with all your particular strengths and weaknesses, your gifts and limitations, all the baggage you carry from your remote and immediate past, all that your life has made you.  This person is what God wants, and you must want it too; but such obedience is not a static program, because it (also) means consenting to become through God’s grace the person he wants you to become.

The Oblate Life, p. 174, Maria Boulding
