It’s impossible not to be affected by all the hurt and pain we experience. We must develop the maturity and skills to process it all. Still, the effect on our soul can only find true healing in God. His Spirit alone purifies us. Go to Christ and be clean again.
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 to me the joy of your salvation
and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.
