Through His Grace

Through His Grace are you redeemed. This does not mean that there are not times when you must exert effort. This is the paradox. Of yourself, you are nothing, and His Grace is required for you to return to Him. But there are times when effort is important for you, like when you encounter dry periods, dark nights of the soul, and you desperately desire to feel His Presence. It is not that our effort takes us somewhere. Through our struggles we see that without His Grace, nothing can happen, and this helps us to surrender, to know that we cannot truly do anything of ourselves. Only by the ego being reduced to the small voice it truly is, by becoming like a child, can we enter Heaven.
