So now we are into spring what a mew beginning with lots of sunshine love, joy, and happiness. I am a little late with my cleaning but no worries it should be done. I’m not going to be doing any heavy cleaning like I do for the holidays but I definitely will move some chairs to get the dust ball, and transfer my plants I think they out grew their pots , God is good all the time.
A Pray of Repentance
Psalm 51King James Version (KJV)
51 Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.
2 Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.
3 For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.
4 Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.
5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
6 Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.
7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
8 Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.
9 Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.
10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.
12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.
13 Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.
14 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.
15 O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.
16 For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering.
17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
18 Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem.
19 Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar.
I am coming to the end of lent in preparation of the celebration of Easter. It’s a time for baptism, joy, life and rebirth. After all the praying and fasting there is one more thing left for me to do, in order to go forward with a clean soul and enjoy every moment in this joyful celebration. I am going to be making my first confession ever, I always do the whole 40 days of lent but never shed myself of my sins. I remember my mom always used to tell us going to school, we don’t have to confess to anyone but God, so when we had confession time I wouldn’t go, but coming back into church and getting to understand more I know now I have to do this. I saw a video of (Archbishop Fulton Sheen) and he was talking about confession and why we should go and he said, when we suppress our guilts it is there for eternity unless it is forgiven, when it is forgiven it’s completely bolted out, well how do we now through the mercy of god and the fullness of faith in christ how are our sins forgiven? by confession, what is confession? nudity of the souls stripping ourselves of all false excuses and charm pretenses and revealing ourselves as we really are. I take this as a recycling of our life and a rebirth of a new life, God is good all the time. Have a great Easter.
Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
I am creating a gym in my hallway where I can do my workouts, right now I’m doing it in the living room but that’s a bit daunting because I have to bring everything there and take them back. So now I have the perfect space for it. I love working out outside so when the winter comes I have no choice but to take my workout indoors, I really don’t do well in the cold so going to a gym would be a big no for me . It takes to much motivation to workout during the winter let alone going to a gym, don’t mind I want to try a cold weather run one day. Also the cost and getting there and don’t forget all the naked people in the changing room. I once had a membership in a gym and I couldn’t used the equipment I wanted because someone always hogging it, or I would find sweat all over the mats that I started to bring my own. But don’t get me wrong home gyms isn’t for everyone some of us need to get out of the house or we simply can’t motivate ourselves to exercise regularly. These days there are so much on line Gyms, DVD or even Youtube. You can created a little space in your own home and start exercising whenever you are ready without leaving . So if you guys are a gym person or like to workout at home like me or whatever you do to get in that exercise enjoy God is good.
