“How could I not succeed when I am in the service of my Lord?”
When I read Hanuman’s words, tears came to my eyes. I felt my own longing to serve, as well as the doubts that I sometimes experience when the way forward looks difficult. I felt so inspired by Hanuman’s faith and conviction that his Master’s grace would give him everything he needed to complete his mission. As Hanuman described the qualities that Rama’s grace drew out in him—firm intention, flexibility, perseverance, patience—I could touch those same qualities in myself, and a prayer arose that I might attain as much strength of devotion and dedication to my own life’s mission as Hanuman displayed for his. With grace, I feel all things are possible. How can I not succeed when I am in the service of my Lord?
