Trembling on Monday

Not to us, O LORD, not to us,
But to Your name give glory
Because of Your lovingkindness, because of Your truth
(Ps 115:1).

Some very real pastoral confessions and prayers for Monday morning by Robert Murray M'Cheyne:
June 22. - Carronshore. My last. Some tears; yet I fear some like the messenger, not the message; and I fear that I am so vain as to love that love. Lord, let it not be so. Perish my honour, but let Thine be exalted for ever.

... Alas! how I tremble for my Monday mornings - those seasons of lifelessness. Lord, bless the seeds sown this day in the hearts of my friends, by the hand of my friends, and all over the world - hasten the harvest!

-Bonar, Memoir and Remains (Banner; reprint, 2004), p. 44


  1. Not to wory, Steve. I took an informal survey and found that no one likes the messenger. (j/k)

    On a more serious note, thanks for bringing God's Word to us yesterday.

  2. Thanks for the survey, David... I'll be glad when the election season is past! :)
