Spiritual Transformation

“Spiritual transformation, ‘recovering your life,’ comes from partnering with the Trinity for change. That doesn’t mean we give the holy Spirit an agenda or a demand. We simply desire. We bring our ache for change, our longing for belonging, our desperation to make a difference. Then we keep company with Jesus by making space for him through spiritual discipline. Our part is to offer ourselves lovingly and obediently to God. God then works within us doing what he alone can do. Our desires don’t obligate the holy One. God is free to come to us in spiritual discipline as he wills, not as we demand. But unless we open ourselves to him through spiritual practices, we will miss his coming altogether.”–Adele Ahlberg Calhoun
