We are each like an egg. C. S. Lewis helped me here. An egg is suppose to hatch in its proper time. If it does not hatch it rots. If it breaks before its time, such as Humpty Dumpty, it is broken. It cannot be fixed. Some of us, me for sure, was once a broken egg. I tried to hatch before my time. I was not ready but self-will and impatience took over. I rolled around thinking I was living life fully, when in fact I was simply rolling around. Eventually, I broke, not in a natural fashion where I would become all I was supposed to be, but in a fallen and unnatural way. This is the Fall. Oh, maybe the Bible is not so off track? I could not be put back together. A mess is still a mess even patched together. I needed to be remade. I could not do this, and that is a good thing. Left to my own devices, I was just going to be broken or a patched mess. The solution is a spiritual one, and in my case, it is God as I seem to have discovered. God took the best of me, my God-ness, and encircled me in a shell to incurbate. The shell is Love. There I waited, because self-will only ruins Love. Eventually, in God's time, my waiting in prayer, patience, trust and hope, I broke out of the shell of protective Love, and began to live, to be this Love in my own unique way. I start small, needing God, but trust that I will fly, even soar. When I stay God-connected I soar best. I am always becoming all God meant for me to be.
