I Won’t Give Up

This prayer of petition goes well with the reflections “IN THE REAR VIEW” on The Spiritual Combat, 5.

Acknowledging personal guilt, acknowledging infinite goodness and might of God.

A tendency will often be, after a fall, to fall in on myself.  It seems the writer of this song recognized that tendency but overcame, rose, and went to God.  This is always the best move after a fall.  Go the the Father who loves.  This is what the lost son did in Luke chapter 15.  Recognizing his desperate situation, he decides: “I shall get up and go to my father” (Lk 15:18).  Persevering and humble faith will rise and go to the Father!
