Day 837 of Giving Thanks

Approaching His throne in prayer gives me so much confidence and comfort and last night was no different. As the words were shot at me, the temptation to respond as I once did entered my mind, as immediately as it did, I stopped and prayed. Father, remove these reactions from my heart, give me a mind of clarity and truth. In that “moment”, I avoided heartache and turmoil. Now to be honest, this was not an avoidance to respond outwardly, but to respond internally, which is harmful and disallows taking forward steps. I am grateful for the habit of prayer, and the urgings of the Holy Spirit as I begin to falter.

I am grateful for this amazing transformed heart that is God’s, and daily for His love and promises.

"Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me."  Psalm 51:10 (New International Version)
