A New Beginning

I made a new covenant with the Lord, which was: of my part, that I would reform these sins by his grace: pride, covetousness, love of this world, vanity of mind, unthankfulness, sloth, both in his service and in my calling, not preparing myself with reverence and uprightness to come to his word. Of the Lord’s part, that he would give me a new heart, joy in his Spirit, that he would dwell with me and, that he would strengthen me against the world, the flesh and the devil, that he would forgive my sins and increase my faith.
