Having to depend solely on God


“It is a dreadful truth that the state of (as you say) ‘having to depend solely on God’ is what we all dread most. And of course that just shows how very much, how almost exclusively, we have been depending on things. But trouble goes so far back in our lives and is now so deeply ingrained, we will not turn to Him as long as He leaves us anything else to turn to.”

C. S. Lewis
Letters to an American Lady 
(Grand Rapids, 1967), page 47, italics his.
