“Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore me to the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me… You do not delight in sacrifice or I would bring it; you do not take pleasure in burnt offerings. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.” Psalm 51: 10-12, 16-17
It’s been a tough few days with little joy for me, but things are better. I was just overwhelmed and feeling the weight of a lot of responsibility. Good thing my joy doesn’t come from myself, right? 😉
Matt and I have our 5K tonight, and we are ready! I don’t know if I’ll be setting a PR or anything, though. I haven’t been training for speed, but just barely chugging through the running at all. We shall see.
