Impossible boast

Proverbs 20:9 Who can say, I have made my heart pure; I am clean from my sin?

Not me.  I’ve spent years trying to make myself a ‘better’ person.  Trying to stop myself doing the things I know I shouldn’t and to do the things I know I should.  All it leaves is spiritual exhaustion, a sense of failure, feeling far from You and wondering what the point is.

The point is that I can’t make my heart pure – You can.  You’ve paid the price to bring me to You and are daily transforming me.  I have not made my heart pure – You have and are doing so.  I cannot do this on my own but I thank You that I am not doing this on my own.  I’ve given up trying to do it myself – partnering with the Creator of the universe seems like a much better idea.
