Editor's note:

Fénelon! How deep and sweet you pierce with so few words. God help us per­fec­tion­ists live into these words, all our pre­tense with God and oth­ers gone that we may be healed and live sim­ply, with­out fear of rejection.

—Brian Morykon

Excerpt from The Seeking Heart

Your spir­i­tu­al walk is a lit­tle too rest­less and uneasy. Sim­ply trust God. If you come to Him, He will give you all that you need to serve Him. You real­ly need to believe that God keeps His word. The more you trust Him, the more He will be able to give you. If you were lost in an uncross­able desert, bread would fall from heav­en for you alone.

Fear noth­ing but to fail God. And do not even fear that so much that you let it upset you. Learn to live with your fail­ures, and bear with the fail­ures of your neigh­bors. Do you know what would be best for you? Stop try­ing to appear so men­tal­ly and spir­i­tu­al­ly per­fect to God and man. There is a lot of refined self­ish­ness and com­pla­cen­cy in not allow­ing your faults to be revealed. Be sim­ple with God. He loves to com­mu­ni­cate Him­self to sim­ple peo­ple. Live day by day, not in your own strength, but by com­plete­ly sur­ren­der­ing to God.
