Such great privileges—yet a life so sadly below them.
In short, I am a riddle to myself; a heap of inconsistency!
Alas! when shall it be otherwise? I have a desire of walking with God but I cannot attain unto it. Surely it is far better to depart, and to be with Jesus Christ than to live here up to the ears in sin and temptation!
But, "We have an Advocate with the Father." Here my hope revives! Though wretched in myself, I am complete in Him! He is my wisdom, righteousness, sanctification and redemption. On this "Rock" I build, for time and eternity!
