Create in me a clean heart
Oh god and renew a right spirit within me
Cast me not away from thy presence, o lord
And take not thy holy spirit from me
Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation
And renew a right spirit within me
these days i feel God putting a ton of things on my heart and sometimes i feel so overwhelmed by it that i just don't know where to start or what to do with it. so i guess i start with me. our country is in need of prayer. my children's attitudes and behaviors are in need of prayer. but most of all, i feel like my heart is in need of prayer. God tells us to seek Him first. Lately i feel like i have been completely lazy in that area and seeking requires action. in my days where i feel like i just go in circles, sometimes i feel like the last thing i have is energy to seek. and like i said in an earlier post, He asks me to seek Him first. i think "first" there can mean the obvious of seek Him above all else, but also, before you do anything else, before you roll out of bed, seek Him. seek His guidance. (for us mamas...seek His patience...even though we don't really want to say it b/c we know He'll just give us situations that will test that patience!!)
anyway, i hope you are using your monday to pray. pray without ceasing.
