Lord, It seems I have lost sight of thee
Self, I remember when I thought clearer of me
There was a time when I saw clearer
But now I just hide from mirror.

A diddy that came to my mind when I was washing my hands. Would like to finish it one day.

"If anyone thinks that Christians regard unchastely as the supreme vice, he is quite wrong. The sins of the flesh are bad, but they are the least bad of all sins. All the worst pleasures are purely spiritual: the pleasure of putting other people in the wrong, of bossing and patronizing and spoiling sport, and back-biting, the pleasures of power, of hatred. For there are two things inside me, competing with the human self which I must try to become. They are the Animal self, and the Diabolical self. The Diabolical self is the worse of the two. That is why a cold, self righteous prig who goes regularly to church may be far nearer to hell than a prostitute. But, of course, it is better to be neither."

"We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased."

- C.S. Lewis (via jeremywatt)

Exemplified in my observation of others. But even more solidified in my introspection of my heart.

"When there is a lack of fellowship with other believers, it is a sure sign that backsliding is about to begin. The Christian life is one of constant growth. We are either moving forward or moving backward. It is progression or regression. There is no standing still. So if you are suddenly withdrawing from church, backing off from your study of the Word of God, and have a pretty much nonexistent prayer life, then you are starting to backslide, whether you want to admit it or not."
