“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.”
Psalm 51:10 ESV
The running joke is that 2020 was dumpster fire. And it was. Most of it. But maybe not all of it. At least for me. 2020 put my life in focus. It slowed it down to a crawl and forced me to face the areas of my life that were rotting away. Decayed. Even the little things that were starting to be a little off putting.
One of my relationships needed healing and restoration. Certain negative thought patterns needed to be replaced by loving, faith filled thought patterns. I needed to heal my broken relationship with food and take a hard look at how the big dreams in my life could nurture, not hinder, my responsibilities as a wife and mother.
I needed God’s renewal in many areas of my life. But first, I needed to face it. Take responsibility for it. Admit and accept my need for renewal existed.
I made a list for God’s eyes alone. I wrote every area of my life that needed renewal, sealed it, and gave it to Him.
If you were to make a list right now, what would be on it?
While you’re at it, might as well get out a piece of paper and just write it down.
Then give it to Him. See what happens next.
