The Main Character

I want to be what God wants me to be. But before that, I must shuffle through a dozen romantic and heroic versions of myself and see God in my stead.

I must let another slay the dragon, another state the intelligent answers, another speak before hundreds, another wear the red dress, and another come in first place. I must be content to let these dreams go.

I must be content to live in the story where God is the hero.
