French theologian Phillipe Vernier offers a similar perspective on conducting a life of spiritual purpose: “Do not wait for great strength before setting out,” he cautions, “for immobility will weaken you further. Do not wait to see very clearly before starting: one has to walk toward the light. Have you strength enough to take this first step?… You will be astonished to feel that the effort accomplished, instead of having exhausted your strength, has doubled it‐‐and that you already see more clearly what you have to do next.”
