“Once you let go of the world in a spirit of detachment, once you remove the things of this world from your grasp and see them without distortion, you will really have them. They will appear as they are, as God intended them. They will no longer be objects for your manipulation or possession but beautiful realities in themselves.”
And in the blink of an eye, I am reminded that in the distortion and corruption of our human senses, the gift of faith renews us into the image in which we were created. As He restores our vision in His image, we appear as we are, as we are intended to be- fully surrendered, truly free, and beautiful in ourselves. I am reminded that only in letting go can we truly have that which is worth having.
