All I Longed For

“Monday, Jan. 23 [1744]. I think I never felt more resigned to God, nor so much dead to the world, in every respect, as now; was dead to all desire of reputation and greatness, either in life, or after death; all I longed for, was to be holy, humble, crucified to the world, &c.

– David Brainerd, The Life and Diary of David Brainerd
