Renew And Be Restored

Begin again…trust God to guide you…surrender your heart and mind…with God all things are possible.  Trouble will come, things will get messed up and times will be difficult, this is to be expected.  Focus on what you can control…how will you choose to respond?  Will you choose hatred, anger, malicious talk and put your efforts into tearing down others?  Many have chosen this way and it brings nothing but destruction.  Will you choose kindness, compassion, listening and patience?  Even with your enemies?  Every single person was created by God…clearly it is time for the human race to go back and read the instructions for life found in God’s word.  If you are unsure where to begin try the Book of Proverbs or look into the story of Joseph in Genesis.  God can renew and restore us if we are willing to turn towards Him.  Amen.

“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.”

Psalm 51:10-12
