A Daily Devotion for September 1, Tuesday

Updated: Sep 3, 2020

Romans 12:2

Psalm 51:10-12 Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.

These verses are finding me right where I am this morning. I am ashamed at myself sometimes- how angry and indignant I can become over a laughably small matter. Thankfully it does not happen often, but I certainly do have some buttons that can be pushed. I could think of these events as times I get stuck in the mud. Sticky, sucking mud holding me back. When I keep things clean, is it less likely to happen? Rain can bring cleanliness and new growth, and it can make mud. With God’s help, I can and must try to keep my heart clean.

Father God, please help me to see the rain you send to me as a way to stay clean, and to grow. Help me to avoid getting mired in conflict and hurt feelings. Amen
