God does not ask about our ability

but our availability.

To accept the will of God never leads to the miserable feeling
that it is useless to strive any more.
God does not ask for the dull, weak, sleepy acquiescence of indolence.
He asks for something vivid and strong.
He asks us to cooperate with him, actively willing what he wills,
our only aim his glory.

I said, “Let me walk in the fields.”
He said, “No, walk in the town.”
I said, “There are no flowers there.”
He said, “No flowers, but a crown.”

Christianity is at its root
about a radical and thoroughly transforming obedience to God.

John Garvey

The end of the Christian life
is not to do good or get good;
it is just doing what God wills,
whether that be winning or losing,
suffering or recovering,
living or dying.
