Honestly admit your faults & failures to yourself & to the Lord!               

                The best thing to do with faults & failures & mistakes & weak points is to see them, recognize them, be honest about them & then try to somehow overcome them if we can!

                When we make a mistake, God doesn’t just throw us out. If so, we’d have been thrown out a long time ago, because we make so many mistakes! He just tries to tell us how to correct them & encourages us to try again!

                We all have weaknesses, we all make mistakes, but the greatest way we can help ourselves is to face the facts. We must be willing to expose our own hearts & bare our souls to the Lord & ourselves, & to see ourselves as we really are! We must ask the Lord to help us to be honest about ourselves & to see ourselves as He sees us! As Shakespeare said, “If thou canst to thine own self be true, thou canst not be false to ANY man.”–If we can honestly admit our problems to ourselves, then we can fight them!

                Thank You, Lord, that we’re learning, & we can love & serve You in SPITE of our mistakes & faults & shortcomings! We know it’s only YOU! You never fail!

诚实地向自己和主承认你的过失和失败吧!

对于过失、失败、错误及弱点,我们所能做的最好的事,就是去面对它们、确认它们、诚实地承认它们,然后只要可能,就努力去克服它们!

当我们犯错误时,上帝是不会就此赶走我们的。如果他这样做的话,我们早就被赶走了,因为我们犯了那么多的错误!他只是设法告诉我们如何改正,并且鼓励我们再次尝试!

我们全都有弱点,我们全都犯错误,但是我们能帮助自己的最佳办法,就是去面对事实。我们必须愿意向上主及自己坦露我们自己的心和我们的灵魂,按我们原来的模样来看自己!我们必须请求上主帮助我们诚实地承认自己的错误,并像他那样来看我们自己!就如莎士比亚所说的∶“如果你能对自己诚实的话,那你将不会对任何人虚伪。”如果我们诚实地面对自己,承认自己的缺点,那么我们就能跟这些缺点作斗争了!

谢谢您,上主,使我们能够不断在学习,而且尽管我们有错误、过失及缺点,仍能够爱您和服事您!我们知道这全都出于您!您是永不会失败的!
