TAKE OUT THE TRASH and CARVE OUT A NEW HEART

Many years ago,  I drew a little heart shaped shovel beside this verse.  I ask the Lord then to go into my heart and clean out the trash…shovel it out.  My prayer is the same today.  Take out the trash and make me more like You. 

Create for me a pure heart, O God! Renew a resolute spirit within me!  Psalm 51:10 NET

CREATE…
Shape
Cut
Carve out
Form by cutting
Make smooth
Polish
Birth

FOR ME A PURE HEART…
A clean heart
A clear heart
An uncontaminated heart
An unmixed heart
A bright heart

O GOD!
Great
Almighty
Exceeding
My Hero

RENEW
Rebuild
Repair
Restore
Cut

A RESOLUTE…
Upright
Plumb
Prepared
Established
Constant
Ready
Right
Erect
Fixed
Set up
Ordered

SPIRIT
Breath
Wind
Life
Thought
Action

WITHIN ME
In the middle of me
In the center of me
In my interior

Do not reject me!
Do not take your Holy Spirit away from me!
Let me again experience the joy of your deliverance!
Sustain me by giving me the desire to obey!
Then I will teach rebels your merciful ways,
and sinners will turn to you. (Psalm 51:11-13 NET)

 I enCOURAGE you all to pray this prayer with me and with resolute heart to remain true to the Lord. Share the mercy of the Lord and His deliverance.   Draw others to Him.

  1. ❤❤❤ It is also my desire to have a clean heart. Sometimes I am aware of what isn’t clean and repent as soon as I become aware. I am sure, however, there are things God considers unclean and I want all that removed!!
