LESLIE: A woman prayed, “dear Father, I’ve been doing really well today! So far, I haven’t yelled at the kids, cussed, thrown anything around in anger, overeaten, overspent, or overlooked my responsibilities. I haven’t watched too much TV, and I haven’t driven too fast. I’ve been good-natured and cheerful, but, dear Father, it’s morning, and time for me to get out of bed now. From here, I’m really going to need your help!” That’s what it comes down to. If you choose to believe that, somehow, God makes up the difference between your efforts and what’s required, then it’s that very belief which puts you in the right state of mind to receive the blessing, even when you don’t deserve it. In all honesty, none of us really “deserve It;” only by the grace of God are we even breathing. So, to reach our goals, what does He require? Do what you can, but you need not run faster than you have strength.
