Introductory 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.
