Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Psalm 51: 10
With arms open wide, Jesus reaches out to lift us to a place of calm. As we quiet our hearts, He reminds us how to welcome the presence of His STRENGTH and focus on what is good.
Burdens are often difficult to bear. But Jesus lightens the load. He lifts the weight from our shoulders and guides us in the right direction. He helps us learn to TRUST as we faithfully follow Him and open our hearts to welcome His kindness.
The Bible helps us walk in truth and scripture keeps us grounded. “The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us” John 1:14. It speaks to our souls and helps us understand the depth of Christ’s amazing love.
Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me and know my anxious thoughts; And see if there be any hurtful way in me, and lead me in the everlasting way” Psalm 139:23-24 NASB
Jesus longs for us to have a loving relationship and recognize the beauty of His PEACE. As we invite Him to dwell with us forever; we love a little deeper, grow a lot stronger and find courage to admit we are weak.
We can call on Jesus and allow Him to lead us on a path of righteousness. We need Him every day of our lives. Let us welcome the JOY of Christ! He is HERE and HE loves us! He will remain in our hearts forever as we welcome the HOPE He provides and embrace the gifts of God's greatness.
Dear God, Thank you for the POWER of Your holiness. Forgive us when we forget to step in faith and allow worry rob our calm. Quiet our souls, guide us in the right direction and help us refocus on what is GOOD. We will find JOY in Jesus and TRUST in YOU as we welcome PEACE and HOPE. Thank you for nurturing our hearts and helping us remember WHY we need You EVERY DAY of our lives. Amen
