It My Money And I Need It Now It My Money And I Need It Now

Regenerate — 2011

“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.” Psalm 51:10

It is a painful moment when I reflect on the true condition of my heart and realize it’s not in as great of condition as I had imagined it to be.  I liken it to God finally holding up a magnifyng mirror to my spirit and allowing me to see the “real me.” I like to think of myself as a loving, giving, kind person (of course, who wouldn’t). However, when I choose to remove the rose colored glasses that I prefer to view myself through, I realize that my heart has given way to my own selfish desires. I have allowed my unwillingness to forgive others to harden my heart with bitterness and resentment. I have given way to the idea that I’m simply “too busy” to make time for the needs of others and have thus allowed myself to become indifferent to their needs and suffering. I have allowed fear to overcome me and hinder my boldness to step up and share God’s love openly and actively. I don’t like to admit it. I don’t enjoy writing it openly here. But who am I to walk around pretending that my stuff doesn’t stink? That my heart is right where it needs to be, when it simply is not. Thus, DAILY, I have to examine my own heart. Confess my own failings. And allow Him to renew it and regenerate it by first BREAKING IT…breaking it free from the bonds that’s bind it. He waits for me to say each day…”Break my heart, God, for what breaks Yours and create in me a NEW heart and a NEW Spirit. Today. Tomorrow. The next day….and the next…..

Love God. Love Others
