This book helped me a lot Jun 21, 2009
"I understand very well why St. Peter fell (denied the good Lord for three times). Poor Peter, he was relying upon himself instead of relying only upon God's strength.... I'm very sure that if St. Peter had said humbly to Jesus: "Give me the grace, I beg you, to follow you even to death", he would have received it immediately."
This small excerpt taken from this book which, faithful to its title, really collects "Spiritual treasures from St. Therese of Lisieux" happened to be read by my at the right moment(providence)... I too was seeking to find my way relying on my own ability.... and failed miserably... until I understood that, yes, I must rely much much much more on the good God's Divine Love and Mercy.... If only, as St. therese suggested, I whould humbly ask the good God to help me trust more in his merciful love - believe me... it made a big difference.
I pray that if you are reading this and are going through my same experience that you be touched by grace and start all over again, this time relying on the good God's strenth and trusting more in his Divine Love and Mercy..... rather than in your own confused self assessment.
