"I'm just beginning to embrace the liberation that only exists at the bottom, where I have nothing to defend, nothing to protect. Where it doesn't matter if I'm right or esteemed or positioned well. I wonder if that's the freedom Jesus meant when He said, 'Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven' (Matt. 5:3). In order for Jesus' kingdom to come, my kingdom will have to go, and for the first time I think I'm okay with that."
