Let the striving cease.

I recommend a wonderful book called, "They Found the Secret" by Raymond Edmond. It speaks of 20 men and women of faith that learned, mostly through the storm, what it means to abide in Christ and live the Spirit filled life (Amy Carmichael, Andrew Murray, Dwight Moody, John Bunyan...).

This is a quote from Andrew Murray,
"Take time. Give God time to reveal Himself to you. Give yourself time to be silent and quiet before Him, waiting to receive, through the Spirit, the assurance of His presence with you, His power working in you. Take time to read His word as in His presence, that from it you may know what He asks of you and what He promises you. Let the word create around you, create within you a holy atmosphere, a holy heavenly light, in which your soul will be refreshed and strengthened for the work of daily life."
