God makes all things new. He makes ALL things new. I have seen lives transformed and changed by the power of Jesus.

“And he who sat upon the throne said, “Behold I make all things new.” Also he said, Write this, for these words are trustworthy and true. And he said to me, It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the fountain of the water of life without payment. He who conquers shall have this heritage, and I will be his God and he shall be my son.” Revelation 21-8

A Right Spirit – Lent Two

Lent Letterpress

Yesterday was not one of my better days.

It is so easy for me to allow myself to get bogged down in the mundane daily trials of life. One word of discouragement can lead to a day filled with anxiety and disappointment.

What a waste of a perfectly good day.

By day’s end, I had started my Lenten walk by attending Ash Wednesday services. During the service, we recited the 51st Psalm. What struck me was Verse 11: “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me”.

I’m worried about the trivial but God is worried about my heart. I’ll stick with God and worry less about myself. He knows what is important and uses a solemn service to remind me…

…and I’m glad.
