Quotemeal: Oct. 6th, 2019

Sunday, October 6, 2019

"We fear the search for who we are. Perhaps because we're afraid that having located our true souls, we might not like ourselves that much. So, we shrink to step across the threshold to our inner selves and invite God in. ... But no matter how we love the love the busy world of our relationships, the fast-action theater of our noisy and hurried lives at last empties out. Then we find ourselves in lonely cells of bulky silence that compels us to turn from the outer things and face our inner selves — and our mighty God."
— Calvin Miller
