Psalm 51: 10-12
Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and renew a right[b] spirit within me.
11 Cast me not away from your presence,
and take not your Holy Spirit from me.
12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation,
and uphold me with a willing spirit.
This is a prayer that I need to pray everyday. I need a clean heart every day. I need a right spirit every day. Holy Spirit, You are welcome here, everyday. I need joy that comes from God not my circumstances every day. Being joyful because of my circumstances, that is temporary, but joy that God gives us is eternal. I need to ask God to fill me with that kind of joy. I love partaking in the creative process, whether it is writing, cooking, singing, or other forms of art, but before I start my day, I need to ask God to do his creative work in me. I need to surrender the broken pieces of my life to Him, and watch him create beautiful things out of the dust.
