“Sinner, tell God your misery even now, and he will hear your story. He is willing to listen, even to that sad and wretched tale of yours about your multiplied transgressions, your hardness of heart, your rejection of Christ. Tell Him all, for he will hear it. Tell him what it is you want—what large mercy—what great forgiveness—just lay your whole case before him. Do not hesitate for single moment; he will hear it, He will be attentive to the voice of your cry.” Charles Spurgeon.
