And Peter by Watchman Nee
This extract written by Watchman Nee helps me tremendously in my Christian journey. I disappoint the Lord constantly, with rebellion I go against the truth I know. I break the promises I make to God, I forget about His indwelling presence in my life. I get so overwhelmed by life's temptations; I don't always walk in obedience to His commandments and in the leading of His Spirit.When I want to give up and quit; I trust in the goodness of His heart. Though I fall short and I cease to be perfect; He draws me closer to Himself. How easy it is to lose sight of the valuable things! To give what is sacred to the dogs, to throw away our pearls to the pigs! How easy to forget the treasure we possess...how easy it is to be weighed down by the temptations of life! But in God's holy presence we can regain our strength, we can endure temptations, we can rise after a fall, we can run and finish the course. We can with faith and perseverance possess the promises of God, we can bear fruit that will remain, we can be baptized daily with fire. We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.
