Willing Spirit

Create in me a pure heart,

   O God,

And renew a right spirit

   within me.

Do not cast me from your


Or take your Holy Spirit

   from me.

Restore to me the joy of your


And grant a willing spirit to

   sustain me.

(Psalm 51:10-12)

It’s only Tuesday, but when emotions ride heavy on your heart, the week seems long. It’s only Tuesday? But I found refreshment and hope on my couch this morning. Sitting in the silence again. Doing nothing but listening for guidance. What do I read? What scripture, which devotion?

How I needed Psalm 51. I could not have orchestrated the words better myself. It is as if the Psalmist looked into my heart and knew exactly what to pray.


Would you like to pray it with me today?

Much grace and peace,
