Repent – Verse of the day – Day 59
Dear father I repent from my old way and turn to you today for forgiveness. I accept your holy spirit and walk in the newness of the spirit. Down with the old man and in with the new at baptism.
What a glorious day when we shall meet you and receive our new glorified bodies. No sickness and no death shall conquer us anymore.
Today as I go about my way I will reflect on the greatness of your name Jesus Christ. I will follow your word and receive the holy spirit with a repentant heart of gratitude.
David W. Aucoin
Reflection passage: Psalm 52 (Like Psalm 51 King David pours out his heart)
1 Why do you boast of evil, you mighty hero? Why do you boast all day long,
you who are a disgrace in the eyes of God?
2 You who practice deceit, your tongue plots destruction; it is like a sharpened razor.
3 You love evil rather than good, falsehood rather than speaking the truth.[c]
4 You love every harmful word, you deceitful tongue!
5 Surely God will bring you down to everlasting ruin: He will snatch you up and pluck you from your tent;
he will uproot you from the land of the living.
6 The righteous will see and fear; they will laugh at you, saying,
7 “Here now is the man who did not make God his stronghold but trusted in his great wealth
and grew strong by destroying others!”
8 But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God’s unfailing love
for ever and ever.
9 For what you have done I will always praise you in the presence of your faithful people.
And I will hope in your name, for your name is good.

Quote for my day:
O Holy Spirit, descend plentifully into my heart. Enlighten the dark corners of this neglected dwelling and scatter there Thy cheerful beams.
