I believe we all have a "demon". And by that, I mean a certain "sin" that we are attached to. It seperates us from God. And, the second we seek God, we get sucked back in. We're trapped in chains, and we need to be set free through graces.
Our Lady said:
"These rays symbolize the graces I shed upon those who ask for them.
The gems from which rays do not fall are the graces for which souls forget to ask."
And our Lord and Savior has endless love and mercy for us. We are weak, and we are sinners. We often fall short of His glory. But, God wants us to come to Him with all our struggles and sufferings. He wants to help us. He's our Father, and we are His children. He wants to hold us in His arms. He not only wants to be our Father, but our best friend.
This isn't easy though. Not with all the evil in the world. And once Satan finds your weakness, he'll keep working with that. He'll trick you. He'll decieve you. He'll lie to you. He'll work in his sly ways to seperate you from God.
It's a constant battle. We constantly have to ask for forgivness through the sacrament of reconciliation.
We are involved in a spiritual battle, and hell's army uses big guns. It's hard to survive out there. You have to know your Faith. You have to pray. You have to sail your ship through the two rocks: Mary and Jesus.
The devil will be making the waters rough, but get a firm grasp on the wheel.
Don't let the devil win.
If you keep praying and begging God to set you free of your chains, He will.
I have no doubt of that.
