Christmas was great, but I don’t just want to move on and forget to be grateful and celebrate all that Jesus has done for me.
I have a tendency to become really grateful the weeks coming up to Christmas Day and then forget what just happened. I go back into the daily routine of just floating along through life.
As I continued reading in Psalm, I came across this verse today, and it spoke to that in me.
“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.” – Psalm 51:10
I am going to pray this every day for a least a week. I don’t want to make too lofty a goal at the risk of falling off the wagon, so I’ll just go a week at a time.
I want to stay focused on Jesus. I don’t simply want to forget the beauty of the King who humbly came to earth to redeem the ones He loves. I don’t want to forget the beginning of the gospel until next year. I want to remain in awe of the moment God said, “It’s time.”
