Do You Know God Can Give You A Clean Heart?

Please contact us if you have questions or comments or want encouragement.

If you can relate to the fact that through what ever sin you are involved in, such as alcohol or drug abuse, or sexual sin, or what ever flavor sin you are entertaining. I want to you know that there is hope for you, just as there has been hope for me. Can you remember the feeling of getting out of the shower and putting on fresh, clean clothes? That is an excellent analogy of what God does for us when we confess our sins and repent, and He forgives us. There is nothing like a clean heart after we dirty it with our sins such as anger, lying, lust, etc.God forgives me and gives me a pure heart when I confess and repent from my sins, but that does not mean I ought to keep on sinning. Loving God prevents me from doing that, at least not on purpose.

If you want a clean heart,  confess your sins to God, and turn away from the wickedness that makes you and I sinners. We all get tempted to sin sometimes, but temptation is not sinning. When we give in to temptation, this is that sin which is why we always need to guard our hearts and have the armor of God on to protect us from the evil that can so easily entangle us. When we confess our sins to God, that is the closest way I believe we can have a clean heart because God is faithful and will forgive our sins..  ~Bill Greguska.


Psalm 51:1-2  Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion, blot out my transgressions. Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin.



Is God Concerned About Those Who Have Dirty Hearts?

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.

When difficult times come, that is like hot water; you are like a tea bag. When you are put in hot water (problem or a stressful difficulty) when the teabag (you) is placed in hot water, will it bring out good or lousy tea from you?


Wash Away All My Iniquity And Cleanse Me From My 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 sport, 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.
