Guard your heart from sin and despair

“Be attentive to yourself, so that nothing destructive can separate you from the love of God. Guard your heart, and do not grow listless and say: ‘How shall I guard it, since I am a sinner?’

For when a man abandons his sins and returns to God, his repentance regenerates him and renews him entirely.”
-St Isaiah the Solitary
