"My confidence is placed in God who does not need our help for accomplishing his designs. Our single endeavor should be to give ourselves to the work and to be faithful to him, and not to spoil his work by our shortcomings" (from a letter of Isaac Jogues to a Jesuit friend in France, September 12, 1646, a month before he died). How often we get in the Lord's way by seeking to do our thing. We need to get out of the way of the Lord and watch what he can do if we trust him and remain one in him. This is not a passive response but an active one. Jesus is in the driver's seat and I follow his lead.
