“We are never more ourselves than when we pray. But if we remain only ourselves, then we are less than ourselves.” ~Eugene Peterson
We can only become our truest selves together. It can never fully happen alone. Only together will we ever have the courage and the strength and the wisdom it takes to stop listening to the lies of the world—and our insecure hearts—and listen to the Voice of the One who whispered us into being. Only together will we ever be able to let go of the false self and become who and what we were really intended to be. Alone we will always either cave in or chicken out. Alone we will always be at the mercy of mood and whim and circumstance. But together there is strength. Together we are able to call each other to more—to being all that God desires us to be. Now that really is good and pleasant!
