From Psa. 104, oh my soul, look at all God has made and be glad. Rejoice! for all of nature has been created to honor God and to build up His Church. The mountains, seas, beasts, and rains exist for your sake. Will you not herein rejoice, my soul?

I feel like God’s glory has been at the cusp of breaking in several times. I think the thought that holds me back, more than anything else, is the thought that God is near, I need not be happy in Him—it is enough to know He is near. Oh, that I may rebuke that thought. That it might hold no more sway over me or over God’s churches. Instead, may I REJOICE that God is near! And may I not rest until I do. I have work to do this day.

Resolved, to act, in all respects, both speaking and doing, as if nobody had been so vile as I, and as if I had committed the same sins, or had the same infirmities or failings as others; and that I will let the knowledge of their failings promote nothing but shame in myself, and prove only an occasion of my confessing my own sins and misery to God.

— Jonathan Edwards
