[quote=Magicsilence]I cant take it.
Satan is attacking me so hard.
I started off really well a week and a bit ago, praying three times a day. Trying to be Christ.
Well, today was it, I didnt recieve Communion because i think i have fallen so far.
I am in desperate need of help.
How do i be perfect instantly? I could die tomorrow, will what i have done be enough?
Lord Help me.
I think i need to learn patience, and humility.
Any ideas? Or any books by saints or anything?
I cant keep on falling, when I go to confession I say “through the help of your grace Almighty God I will not sin again”.
Any ideas on how to do it?
Hello my friend,
I TOTALLY understand what you’re going through. Remember my terrible trials after my Confirmation? Heck, I left the Church temporarily! The devil loved it too.:mad:
But he didn’t love it when I came back!
It takes much time to be shaped into perfection. Even I asked the same thing, why can’t I be so dang perfect??? We are very impatient when it comes to pefection. We are tempted to give up and say,“heck with it!” and that’s exactly what Satan wants us to do…but how are we going to grow in virtue and holiness by giving up?
I remember hearing Fr. Corapi explain once “you know how steel is strengthened? In the fire!” so these trials could be a gift to strengthen you!
Yes, it take humility to learn and all that. And pride keeps us from doing that. I realized one time that pride keeps us from doing the Will of God and it really DOESN’T make us happy! And yes, it causes us to sin more.
What makes you keep falling back into your sins after Confession (heck, I do this all the time)?
I remember hearing a homily one time and the priest said that the reason why God let’s us “stay in this sin” so to speak is because He is trying to humble us and cling to HIm! He wants us to depend on Him, not on ourselves!
I’ll be praying for you![font=Verdana, Sans Serif, Arial][size=2][font=Comic Sans MS]unity.enya.com/images/smiles/smiles_grin.gif
Whatever you do, DON’T GIVE UP!!!
