My Path

My path has been, and is, one mainly of trial and temptation, a tempter so subtle, and so many crosses and snares in which my feet are continually caught and entangled.

All here on earth, is labour and sorrow. Our own sins, and the sins of others, will always make it a scene of trouble.

Oh, you hideous monster, sin!

What a mighty power it has–a power which grace alone can subdue. It seems sometimes subdued, and then rises up worse than before. Well may we cry out, “Oh, wretched man that I am!”

“Hold me up, and I shall be safe!”
(Psalm 119:117)
