What a joy to know that I have nearly 6 weeks with my children at home! It will be amazing! And I am also excited to have my parents come to visit in 3 weeks time! I was thinking earlier today about what I would write and nothing. No ideas came to my mind. I carried on with my grand plan to clean the house with the children! They were brilliant and very helpful, but it is still hard work cleaning when they pretty much want to play! I am exhausted! I am sure you mums out there know exactly what I mean.
Anyway, I have just read Psalm 51 and verse 10 is among one of my favourites:
“Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.”
Many times during my life I have prayed this prayer. I long for the day when my heart will be pure and I will only choose to live to please the One who seats on the throne of my life. I want Him to be in the centre of everything I do all the time. I want my thoughts to be filled with things that He wants me to think about.
Summer is here and yes, I am busier than ever, doing the best job in the world, but I don’t want that to be an excuse to push Him away or take a holiday from being His follower. So my prayer today is that during these next few weeks I can still desire a pure heart and a renewed steadfast spirit within me. For His glory.
