Psalm 51:10-12 echoes the cry of anyone ready to return to God’s love after a time of living their own independent way. I will forever love this beautiful prayer: “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from your presence, and take not your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit.” God answers the cry of a heart. He can create, renew, restore, and uphold you. He restores lost joy. Ask God to let the Holy Spirit take over and give you that right and willing spirit.
