I was kneeling at the rail. And I was trying to remember the last time when I felt engulfed with the holy spirit.
God is omnipresent, he seeps into every nook and cranny. But not just as one-size-fits-all, he meets us where we're at. He's not going to make everything easy, your problems aren't going to go away. He helps you deal.
I keep surprising myself when I look in the mirror and see black smudges on my forehead. Lent begins today.
|10 Create in me a pure heart, O God, |
and renew a right spirit within me.
11 Do not cast me from your presence
or take your Holy Spirit from me.
12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation
and make me willing to obey you.
|10God, make a fresh start in me, |
shape a Genesis week from the chaos of my life.
11Don't throw me out with the trash,
or fail to breathe holiness in me.
12Bring me back from gray exile,
put a fresh wind in my sails!
