Lord, the reason for my sadness is that,
in spite of my sincere resolutions, I fall again into the same faults.
I make resolutions in the morning, but in the evenings
I see how much I have departed from them.
"You see, My child, what you are of yourself.
The cause of your falls is that
you rely too much upon yourself and too little on Me.
But let this not sadden you so much.
You are dealing with the God of mercy,
which your misery cannot exhaust.
Remember, I did not allot only a certain number of pardons."
"My child, life on earth is a struggle indeed;
a great struggle for My kingdom.
But fear not, because you are not alone.
I am always supporting you,
so lean on Me as you struggle, fearing nothing.
Take the vessel of trust and
draw from the fountain of life – for yourself,
but also for other souls,
especially such as are distrustful of My goodness."
