July 8. Continued to hunger and thirst af ter holiness. I longed to arrive to a greater imitation of the perfect 'pattern set'us by our divine Lord and Master. I I had apeeuliar dread of being left to the abusive sin of using what few talents God had been pleased to en trust me with, in the service of an opposing kingdom, and not in his service, and for the augmentation of his declarative glory among men The idea of committing one sin, pier ccd my heart with many sorrows; and yet I was conscious of being guilty of committing them every hour.
