Have mercy on me, O God, . according to thy steadfast love; according to my abundant mercy blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin. Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right "spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence, and take not thy holy spirit from me. Restore me to the joy.of.thy salvation and uphold me with a willing spirit. (Psalm 51) We can blame the whole world for our misfortune; we can make excuse that others placed obstacles in our pathway to keep us from success but eventually we come to the place of facing self. .Just as Nathun accused David saying, "Thou art the man," The Holy Spirit places hands on our shoulders and says, "You are the person." We must take a leap in the dark and take a look into the very center of self ... the very core of our being. God^is in the depths of our soul and will open the way for us to see our true relationship with Him. As we begin to discover who we are then we realize who God is. then we realize who God is. When we are out of fellowship, with God, a chain reaction sets in and things continue to grow worse. By coming face to face with the center of self, we realize our disobedience and iniquities. Once we are honest vith God realizing what is wrong and what we can do about it, we must act upon this knowledge. God will help and strengthen us by His mercy and Grace. Then and only then, will we return tc the joy of.our salvation and know the peace of God which passeth all understanding. . Given in marriage by her. brother, Edward E.
