1726 Christ and Lord, You are leading me over such precipices that, when I look at them, I am filled with fright,

but at the same time I am at peace as I nestle close to Your Heart. Close to Your Heart, I fear nothing. In these dangerous moments, I act like a little child, carried in its mother‟s arms; when it sees something which menaces it, it clasps its mother‟s neck more firmly and feels secure.1727 + I often see snares laid for me by souls who should not do so. I do not defend myself, but entrust myself all the more to God, who sees within me. And I see how these souls become entangled in their own snares. O God, how just and good You are!
