I Saw My Heart Very Vile

Ejsmond The Anchorite“Nov 29:

In prayer I saw my heart very vile filled with nothing but evil; nay, mind and mouth and life and all, void of God. Hence I prayed to the Lord to possess me again, (1) Because he only was good; (2) Because he only was worthy.”

-Thomas Sheppard, Meditations and Spiritual Experiences
