"Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me." - Psalm 51:10-12
Sometimes we need a restoration of joy in our relationship with God. How often we too need a cleaning fresh start! So much can jade our hearts and choke our joy, whether it's our own sin or the busyness and pressures of the holidays. Sometimes we need the honesty of confession and the simplicity of quiet reflection. No matter where we've been or what we've done, Jesus is here, welcoming us with restorative joy. What is coming between you and God? How will you pour out your heart to God?
