Father, Please

I fail constantly my lord,
I make promises buy have no word.
Day to day I stumble over pebbles,
Knowing it's my fault and not the devil's.

Day to day I am weak to temptation,
I take it smiling like an invitation.
I ask that you not leave me,
Yet I dissobey you daily.

I know where I'll be if you leave,
Temptation is a cunningly evil thief.
Without your grace where am I to go?
Father please don't leave this foolish boy.

    Hector; It seems to me like you are pretty young and all young people make mistakes. Even the grownups and older people make them. You already have one good thing going for you. You believe in God and He will never leave you. Ask Him to guide your steps everyday. Thanks for sharing this with us. God bless you. Lucilla
