Peter's Broken Spirit

Are you like me even as I am like David and Peter, because they wanted to be like the Lord, but often found themselves failing? After Peter denied the Lord three times and the Lord just looked at Peter, it broke the poor man’s heart. Then Luke wrote this, “So Peter went out and wept bitterly” (Luke 22:62).
My heart goes out to Peter. That verse brings tears to my eyes nearly every time I read it. Like Peter, I want to be faithful to the Lord under all circumstances, but I am not always and it grieves my heart mightily.
Amazingly, Jesus accepted Peter. Oh Lord, please accept me also, and all who hear and obey your word!
