Galatians 2:19

It is no longer I who lives, but it is Christ who lives in me.

Little by little we are changed by this daily crucifixion of the will.  Changed, not like a tornado changes things, but like a grain of sand in an oyster changes things.  New graces emerge, new ability to cast all our care upon God, new joy at the success of others, new hope in a God who is good.  God is not destroying the will but transforming it so that over a process of time and experience we can freely will what God wills.
