A clean heart create for me, God; renew in me a steadfast spirit.
Whatever you have done to turn away from God…is in the past (even if what you did was seconds ago). That time no longer exists. As St. Paul said, “Behold, now is a very acceptable time; behold, now is the day of salvation” (2 Corinthians 6:2). Now is the only time where God is present…where the kingdom of God comes alive…where God is always gazing at you with unconditional love and acceptance. God always looks at us with open arms. There is no condemnation. There is no question of “worthiness.” Open your heart and allow Compassion itself…your loving Creator…to renew you. During this time of Lent, take the opportunity to simply turn to God. In this moment I turn to you, O God, and bask in Your awesome Presence. As Jesus said in Matthew 6:6, “When you pray, go to your inner room, close the door, and pray to your Father in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will repay you.” Spend some quiet time with God…and be renewed!
