The Holy Spirit can’t fill you with just the grace you need at just the time you need it in just the way you need it if there’s no room left because you’re already full of yourself, your ideas and your opinions of what matters most in life. This may be a bit unsettling to hear – I know it is for me – because you don’t want to lose, well, you. But the paradox of God’s grace is that it doesn’t destroy your uniqueness – it makes you the best you that you can be. And in the end, you’ll be so grateful you will want to praise God for all eternity.
