When we find our souls at all de­clin­ing, it is best to raise them up presently by some awak­en­ing med­i­ta­tions, such as of the pres­ence of God, of the strict reck­on­ing we are to make, of the in­fi­nite love of God in Christ and the fruits of it, of the ex­cel­lency of a Chris­tian’s call­ing, of the short and un­cer­tain time of this life, of how lit­tle good all those things that steal away our hearts will do us be­fore long, and of how it shall be for­ever with us hereafter, as we spend this short time well or ill. The more we make way for such con­sid­er­a­tions to sink into our hearts, the more we shall rise nearer to that state of soul which we shall en­joy in heaven.
