I Need to Hear This Again and Again

The sins I had most sense of were pride and wandering thoughts, whereby I mocked God.  The former of these cursed iniquities excited me to think of writing, or preaching, or converting heathen, or performing some other great work, that my name might live when I should be dead.  My soul was in anguish and ready to drop into despair, to find so much of that cursed temper.
