Remove My Stony Heart
God has gathered me up and brought me back to my true identity in Christ. As I keep my gaze off myself and on Jesus' beauty and purity, I am cleansed. God gave me a new heart and showed me that His Holy Spirit lives in me. God has removed my heart of stone and given me a tender, responsive heart.
God has put His Holy Spirit in me and because of His love and grace I am moved to live in a way that pleases and glorifies Him. I am His child and He is my God, my Father, "Daddy", "Abba". God has saved me from my self-condemnation. He is giving me an abundant life where famine has been. He is opening my storehouse of fruitfulness where guilt and shame had taken up residence. All praise goes to Jesus Christ, my Savior.
