dying to self

Do not be conformed to this world, 
but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, 
that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, 
what is good and acceptable and perfect.
{romans 12:2}

"When we are fully delivered from 
the influence of selfish considerations, 
and have become conformed to the desires 
and purposes of the Infinite Mind, 
we shall drink the cup, and drink it cheerfully, 
whatever it may be
In a word, we shall necessarily be submissive and happy in all trials, 
and in every change and diversity of situation. 
Not because we are seeking happiness, 
or thinking of happiness, as a distinct object, 
but because the glorious will of Him 
whom our soul loves supremely, is accomplished in us."
{thomas upham}
