I have faith in my strength and believe I am capable of doing all the work.

It is not in your own strength that you should have faith. It is in [new p. 12] the divine force, which works in all who are consecrated to the Divine and sustains them in their action.

I have faith that I am capable of doing all the work. I like the work a lot; so if you don't mind, I would like to continue.

I repeat: having faith in yourself cannot take you very far and it is certain that sooner or later you will feel a reaction and be obliged to stop.

First establish the true attitude, which is to find your base, your support and your help in the Divine alone--then all possibility of fatigue will disappear.
