Particularly with Lent upon us, I thought this was a very good article, well worth passing on!
The part that resonated with me the most was the bit about resisting temptation - number 10. in the article. Handing temptation over to God, admitting to it? That's so simple, and so trusting. Why don't I think of these things? My usual method is more akin to the method of the sort of dieters who fail: I feel guilty about even being tempted, I end up obsessing over whatever temptation I'm currently struggling against, and whenever I do fall, (and of course I do, frequently!), I feel like the dieter who's given into temptation, had that piece of chocolate cake, and thinks they might as well give up trying at all because the diet is broken. I turn away from God, right when I should be turning to him. It's not logical, of course. The way to get back on course is to accept that mistakes have been made, accept God's offered mercy, and live from that point forward.
But one of my biggest faults is being disappointed when I fail to be perfect. It's pride, pure and simple, and it's a turning to self, away from God. Lately, I've been trying to actively offer even my imperfections and failings to Him, accepting that I'm not perfect, that I need Him - a lot.
