"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."  St. Issac Jogues   Do you think he is saying "Get out of the way and let the Lord work through you"? Sometimes we allow our faults and shortcomings get in the way of the Lord, rather than allow him to use our faults and shortcomings to accomplish his works. Another way of saying this is "surrender our plans and follow his lead". His ways are not our ways and our ways are not his. Like the passengers on a two seated bicycle, God is on the front seat with the handle bars directing the journey. We are on the back seat peddling. Easy? No! Necessary? Absolutely!
