This has been the best and most blessed year of my life thus far, I think. But I also think that I will be saying that for a long time, by God's grace =) Do you make resolutions for the new year? I have intended to think of some in earnest, which are worth putting great effort into throughout the year, and have been helped by Jonathan Edwards' resolutions as well as Donald Whitney's 10 Questions.
Thus, among others, I echo these three of Edwards';
64. Resolved, when I find those "groanings which cannot be uttered" (Rom. 8:26), of which the Apostle speaks, and those "breakings of soul for the longing it hath," of which the Psalmist speaks, Psalm 119:20, that I will promote them to the utmost of my power, and that I will not be wear', of earnestly endeavoring to vent my desires, nor of the repetitions of such earnestness. July 23, and August 10, 1723.
