The second is that we lack reliance on God; we do not think of referring to Him in times of prosperity, nor do we have recourse to Him when we fail Him. In short, we act by ourselves: we try to succeed alone, and alone we contemplate our fall. The result of such conduct can only be discouragement…" Divine Intimacy
