Psalm 51:16-17 (msg Bible)
Going through the motions doesn’t please you,
a flawless performance is nothing to you.
I learned God-worship when my pride was shattered.
Heart-shattered lives ready for love
don’t for a moment escape God’s notice.
Lord God give us a desire to be real with you.
Bring us to our knees ready for God-worship.
Ready for a restructuring of our ‘life’ so we can serve you
more deeply and more intensely.
I am glad you notice my heart when I seek you…
for you have said ‘if you seek me with all your heart I will hear you…’
I know you will listen Lord.
Tonight my heart is heavy.
I wish for ‘a heart of love’ towards others… I try and yet I fail so often.
Thank you God that you care… no matter what I do or say… your love is not
conditional on circumstances or feelings.
Thank you God for your patience for I have failed you many times..
your love is always and true.
Thank you God. Thank you
