An EXTRA SHOT for Monday.

"CREATE in me a CLEAN HEART, O God. RENEW a loyal Spirit within me. DO not banish me from your presence and don't take your Holy Spirit from me.  RESTORE to me the joy of your Salvation and make me will to obey you. " -Psalm 51:10-12


3 words stick out to me in these verses. 

CREATE.

-to bring something out of nothing.


-We are all meant to create.

-OUR PRAYER:
let us have God CREATE something in our hearts and minds. 


RENEW:

-to feel clean

-we are all called to live. to breathe. to begin again.

-OUR PRAYER:
-Renew our hearts & minds.


-renew us back to being a young child.....
how they believe in people.
how to LOVE people.
how to serve people.

-Renew what we once thought was gone.


RESTORE:

-to bring back to life.

-to be able to breathe freely. 
-not feeling any pressure.
-not feeling lifeless.
-to have our hearts on eternity 
&
our eyes on Jesus.


OUR PRAYER:
to feel restored every day.





Pray this-
Create. Renew. Restore. ME today God. 

It's no coincident that the end of this verse(12) 
that david leaves us with....

"and MAKE ME WILLING TO OBEY YOU"


It always falls back on us...

Will we obey?
will we choose to walk in HIS ways?

Choose to feel renewed. 
restored.
created.

despite what people say about you.
despite what you are feeling.
despite what you know.
despite your history.
despite your family. 
despite your circumstances.

Choose.
life.




Happy Monday.
