My mind wants to be anywhere but on God. If I open my eyes, my mind goes to the things around me, and if I close my eyes, it goes to imaginings about what the future might look like. My problem isn’t self-control and discipline—it is delight and vision. If I could see God as He is, how could I look away? Lord, let me see you this morning. For the sake of your Son and His kingdom, and let me behold His glory.

I think that one of the deceitful tricks of my heart is dwelling on what I might do for God instead of dwelling on God Himself. It is good to know my enemy, so I can better fight Him. Reveal to me, oh God, my heart’s hidden ways and sins that I might be at the work of putting them to death.

Random Quote

Conversion is not the smooth, easy-going process some men seem to think … It is wounding work, of course, this breaking of the hearts, but without wounding there is no saving. … Where there is grafting there is a cutting, the scion must be let in with a wound; to stick it on to the outside or to tie it on with a string would be of no use. Heart must be set to heart and back to back, or there will be no sap from root to branch, and this I say, must be done by a wound.

— John Bunyan
