January 27, 1760

1760 January 27 (Sunday).  A rainy, Stormy Day; yet a Considerable Congregation (at Hopkinton).  I preached on Rom. 8.28 a. and p.m.  May God Himself add His almighty Blessing!  May I experience it in my own Soul!  That I might have the Evidence of my Effectual Calling and that I may bring forth the genuine Fruit of it!  But alas!  What do I, upon Examination find in my Self!  And what Reason to be deeply humbled before God!  The storm was so great of Wind and Rain, that neither Mr. Barret nor I could return home.  I therefore lodged again there.
