Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a resolute spirit within me.  – Ps 51:12

Reflection.  Sometimes the emotional connection between our brain and our body is dull.  We know intellectually that God loves us at every moment of the day, but we still remain listless.  St. Paul said, “Rejoice always” (Phil 4:4).  Just do it, and don’t ask so many questions.

Prayer.  Lord, quicken my spirit that I may live in Your joy more fully.
