Where is my Lord? Why does he not come by. Lord, those who trust in you will not be put to shame. Let not my enemy rejoice over me. For your glory, show him how you rescue the poor and needy—and what soul is more in need of you than one who is as sinful as I?

Apparently, there is a treasure-trove of apathy in me this morning. What else but an apathetic heart can read of such glorious things as Psa. 104:8-9 and not rejoice? Repent, oh my soul, of thy hardness. Lord, grant me distress for my state before you, so that you might deliver me from it.

Random Quote

Again, the principle to be slain is in ourselves. It cannot be killed without a sense of pain and trouble. Hence it is compared to the cutting off of right hands, and the plucking out of right eyes. Lusts that pretend to be useful to the state and condition of men, that are pleasant and satisfactory to the flesh, will not be mortified without such a violence as the whole soul shall be deeply sensible of.

— John Owen
