Father God, You keep tugging at my heart until it’s clear I must surrender again. Every morning I meet with You and every morning You make me new. How can I not abandon myself to have all of You? You prove Yourself to me. It’s a power that puts me on my knees, to bow my head, and raise my hands. You give me peace so pure and it replaces my pride. How awesome You are my Lord to bring me back into perfect unity with You. I am always in Your thoughts. When I forget myself, I remember a heart that longs for You. I smile and nod because it’s good to know You. You are so kind to me. You truly have Your way with me. I see Your smiles in the beauty that surrounds me. I see your nods when I count them so. You strengthen my heart with overflowing joy. And it only knows how to express this joy when it remembers who it belongs to. You are the Keeper of my heart, and You are always ready to purify it when I yield to You. Cleans it my Lord so with it I can exalt You the best I can. Take all of me again as I submit and commit whole heartedly. Amen.
Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.
By His Grace, Sheela
