Psalm 5:1-3

“Listen to my words, O Lord, and hear my sighs.
Listen to my cry for help,
My God and king!
I pray to you, O Lord;
you hear my voice in the morning;
At sunrise I offer my prayer and wait for your answer.”
(Psalm 5:1-3, TEV)

Friday Felicities

* Diet Coke in the can straight from the fridge (No FF would be complete without mentioning it)
* Sipping said Diet Coke with the windows open.
* Spending my Quiet Time with God with my windows open.
* Cleaning house while the windows are open (it’s the BEST way to motivate myself to clean).
* Having hubby home today so he can reach the window over the sink.

Psalm 51 according to me.

Be gracious to me God, because you love me;
Because of your compassion, erase the crap I’ve stored up.
Wash me fully from my past and keep me clean from the sin I seem to encounter daily.
I know what I’ve done, and it’s always on my mind.
You are the only person against who I’ve sinned
And done what is evil according to You,
I have made it so that you are justified when You speak
And without any blame when You act in my life.

I came into a sinful world.
But still you expect and desire truth in my heart,
And in my mind You expect me to use wisdom.
Purify my heart and I will be clean;
Forgive my mind and make me white again.
Allow me to hear all that is good,
Let the pain I feel, rejoice to know that I FEEL
Don’t look at all of the dirty stuff in my heart
Clean that all out please.

I want a clean heart God
Fill me with longing for You
Keep me close
Keep your Spirit in my heart
Give me a new fire
Keep me willing to do your work
So that I can teach others about You
and they will come to know You.

Keep me from that guilty verdict
And I will sing daily of your glory
Speak through my words
So that Your name will always be praised.
It’s not about how much I give up, but how my heart gives it up.
You aren’t pleased with the things I do
The sacrifice is in my spirit
Only when I come before you broken and humbled
That is when you love me most.

Be good to the church Lord
Build us up.
Delight in the spirit of the work we do.
In the work and in the way we accomplish it
Our work will be lifted to You.
