I love it when my heart feels soft and tender to God's Spirit.
It reminds me of a field all plowed up, with all the rocks, sticks and roots removed,
all ready for seed to be sown in it.
Or, a free flowing fountain with nothing hindering the flow of the life-giving water.
On the other hand, I hate it when I know my heart isn't right with God.
When I'm struggling with any sort of sin issue my heart feels hard.
It reminds me of a field full of stubborn roots and buried rocks.
Or, a fountain all stopped up.
I want to live a life of repentance.
I need God to create a clean heart in me everyday.
I need Him to renew a right spirit within me constantly.
I want to live with my heart soft and tender to God's Spirit at all times.
