I have a lovely icon of St. Theresa of Avila in our home prayer room.

I like it because of her quote. ” God withholds himself from no one who perseveres.”

I believe that most of success amounts to showing up.

God will do her own work, in her own way, at her own time. (See how gender pronouns influence our understanding of God as light, spirit, and love?)

Our task is to show up, again and again, and trust God to guide us and change us according to God’s will.
