I should not strive for success.

I should not hope for any of my efforts to be successful or even for my endeavors to be completed.  .

Rather, I should learn to love with an open and willing heart, so that God’s work can be done in me and through me.

His projects (especially those I cannot see or comprehend) are more vital to our salvation and more important to our lives than anything, finished or unfinished, that I could possibly hope to create or accomplish.
