Broken Heart

“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.” Psalm 51:10 (ESV)

Who, or what broke your heart?  Did you turn to God or away from Him?  Every time something went wrong in my life, I ran away.  When did you stop running, or have you? 

It was eleven years ago that I fell on my face crying uncontrollably to God.  I humbly asked Him to show me how to rest in His arms.  I wanted to know how to discipline myself according to His principles.  I pleaded with Him to stop me from chasing after my desires.  I couldn’t handle the shame anymore. Another broken heart, and I was too tired to keep running.

As I got up the next day and continued living as I always had, God got up and went to work on me!  God does create a clean heart in us.  But we first have to be willing to give our hearts to Him.
