Loving God means wanting to avoid those sins altogether. But when temptation creeps in (as it inevitably will), we must guard our hearts with the armor of God at all times so as not to give in to sin. Confession is key if you want a clean heart – admit your mistakes honestly before God and turn away from anything wicked or sinful that might be holding you back from living your best life possible. Remember: You are never alone in this journey towards purity; others have struggled just like you do now but have come out victorious on the other side! If you can relate to the fact that whatever sin you are involved in, such as alcohol or drug abuse, sexual sin, or whatever flavor of sin we sometimes entertain. I want to you know that there is hope for you, just as there has been hope for me. ~ Bill Greguska.
How Can God Create In Me A Clean Heart? Psalm 51
The Tea Bag Analogy!
We can fool others, but we can not fool God. God looks at our hearts and can tell if what we do has been done with a pure heart or a heart filled with sin.

Peace in My Heart
(This section is from The Book I wrote)
Lord, I am on the right track to find peace when I come to you in prayer, asking for your will, not mine, to be done. I have tended to overlook prayer in the past. Help me to keep in mind that with you, Lord, I can have peace in my heart. I know peace is not something that just happens if we wish for it – it has to come from you. I need to live in a way that reflects what you intend for me. I want to trade my broken pieces for your peace.
Help me to realize that without you, I cannot have lasting peace. Thank you for comforting and watching over me as I plod through life, with its joys and heartaches.
In high school, in sports, I had a coach who told me I was much better than I thought I was and would make me do more in a positive sense. He was the first person who taught me not to be afraid of failure. ~ Michael Krzyzewski, Duke University men’s basketball coach.
