“if we know our own hearts, we know more evil by ourselves than we do by any one else in the world” - Matthew Henry
Every time I read or hear this quote, I am disgusted with myself. My guess is, if you are honest about the happenings from within yourself, you are pretty disgusted also. If people knew the thoughts I think, they would run and hide. Wickedness is an incurable cancer, however we are able to be set free from the symptoms and pains of this disease. In order to be set free, you must first come to grips with your wickedness and desire freedom… Next is the part that so many of us have a hard time with, trust, we don’t want to trust that God really loves us because then we are accountable to that thought. The first step is easy, admitting that we are wicked… The second step is worth the risk, I know this from personal experience and can honestly say that life has not gotten any easier but damn, is it more fulfilling than any second that I breathed before I put my trust in the hands of Jesus.
