We try and we fail. God puts trials in our lives to test our faith. Most of us fail. We fail at unconditional surrender. We fail at trying to sit in silence in a thoughtless state. We fail to become enlightened. Even though we fail to please the Lord, the Lord sees our efforts and our hearts. So now, when grace pours in, in spite of our failures, we cannot take credit for anything. We can only walk with our heads bowed down, crushed by His grace. — Satish Daryanani
