Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Psalm 51:10
03/27/09 Am I the only one who feels like I am praying this every day, but I get a bit worse in this area as each day passes? I doubt it. I’m sure I’m not the only one who wants a committed heart, an open heart, a heart that beats for the will of God alone. I’m also sure that I’m not the only one who feels that my heart is deceptive and evil by nature. But I must turn my heart over to God each day. I must allow Him access to circumcise my heart. Yes, I mean painful cuts that will trim away what He doesn’t need to be in me. It hurts. But I know, in the end, it will be worth it. In the end, I will bear a slight resemblance to the Lord I love so well. In the end, my heart won’t be selfish and overly sensitive and vindictive. In the end, my heart will look like His. Praise the Lord!
