QUOTE (David Brainerd) – Oct 5

October 5, 2014

English: David Brainerd (1718-1747)

“My desires seem especially to be after weanedness from the world, perfect deadness to it, and that I may be crucified to all its allurements. My soul desires to feel itself more of a pilgrim and a stranger here below, that nothing may divert me from pressing through the lonely desert, till I arrive at my Father’s house.” ~ David Brainerd

In honor of David Brainerd, an American missionary to the Delaware Indians of New Jersey, who began ministering to the Indians on this day in 1744.

  1. That nothing may divert me from pressing through the lonely desert, till I arrive at my Father’s… great reminder and challenge


  2. The world has wrapped its tentacles around us too much.
