make a fresh start… [day 21] …31 days of expecting Jesus

I’ve written about the new season here and here and He’s changing me from who I have been.

My prayer has been that during this time of fresh starts and lots of spaces of time for focusing just on me is that I won’t.

Oh that I won’t focus on me at all.

My prayer is that He makes a fresh start in me.  That He turns my heart and ears and mind completely towards Him.

Completely away from me.

God, make a fresh start in me,
shape a Genesis week from the chaos of my life.
Don’t throw me out with the trash,
or fail to breathe holiness in me.
Bring me back from gray exile,
put a fresh wind in my sails!

Psalm 51: 10-12 MSG

He has a fresh start for me, I can feel it… I just don’t want it to have anything to do with me.

What fresh work is He doing in your life?  How are you encouraging others around you?

  1. I absolutely adore you Dedra and love this passage in the Message. Just might have to steal it. I pray for you all the time. God is doing a mighty work thru you my friend.

  2. Dedra – I love it (and at the same time am ashamed) when I can say, "Wow! I didn't know the Bible said that"! What wonderful verses and very much needed today! Thank you…

    1. Thanks for your authenticity Beth! So glad you stopped by. I love it when God reveals a new Word to me through a different translation…always rocks my world.
