Overcoming Temptation

Shall you be better able to fight [bad habits] tomorrow than today? Why add today's mistakes to yesterday's? You have to turn to God sometime, so isn't it better to do it now? Just give yourself to Him and say: "Lord, naughty or good I am Your child. You must take care of me." If you keep on trying, you will improve. "A saint is a sinner who never gave up."
