Make a clean heart in me, O God. Give me a new spirit that will not be moved Psalm 51:10
I woke up with purging on my mind! Driving past trees slowly shedding their leaves the thought struck me again and I had to pray. “Lord, really what is left to purge? Before moving I had purged my closet, in hindsight a less than brilliant move because I could wear those clothes now. The yarn stash is coming down,but I have not gifted the pile of goods, yet! Through the years I have shed furniture and belongings like a snake-skin, pieces here and there, so again I asked what? The answer came low but very clear, doubt and fear. Ouch, I have offered prayers and professions of faith, yet like Thomas I had been harboring doubt. Followed closely by moments of hesitant fear. He had me dead right, I need to purge, to have God cleanse my heart, to pray and for God to remove the fear and doubt and to steady my confidence and calm the fear. Father, in this day I thank you for the thoughts and dreams that allow me to confront and call out those things that are a barrier to clearly hearing You!
Making His praise glorious!
