Create in me a clean heart, O God,
And renew a right spirit within me.

Caste me not away from Thy presence;
Take not Thy Holy Spirit from me.

Restore unto me the joy of Thy salvation;
And renew a right spirit within me.

In my earliest memories of church, I can remember singing these words during worship. We sang this hymn so often, I knew it by heart without ever consciously setting out to memorize it. We sang it so often, I also tended to forget to meditate on its words. I tended to forget that in asking for God to create a clean heart in me, I was also admitting that my heart was in need of being cleaned.

Ever happened to you?

This week, the Daily Fast Fuel is serving up our thoughts and meditations on what it means to be CLEAN. After all, it IS Spring, the time for new life!
