Admitting in the Shower

Create in me a pure heart, O God,
and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Psalm 51:10 (NIV)

What a perfect place to sing a song of confession and forgiveness…in the shower!  As the water washes the dirt from my skin, so God’s Holy Spirit washes through my soul, scrubbing me and making me new.  Welcome back to Singing Week at My TEA CUPP Prayers.  We’ve been sharing another way to enjoy a TEA CUPP during a busy day – singing.  Here’s a song for the ADMIT part of our prayers…

I first learned this song around a campfire at church camp. As we sat on the hard logs and gazed into the golden flames, our hearts would ponder the pastor’s message.  He asked us to write our sins on slips of paper.  One by one we carried our papers to a wooden cross near the fire, and nailed them to that cross.  With a hammer and our own hands, we pounded in the nails.  Because all of us helped pound those nails into Jesus’ hands. Then when all were finished hammering, the pastor laid the cross in the campfire.  And we watched as our sins were burned away.  As far as the East is from the West, our sins are no more.  While gazing into the flames, we sang this song of David from Psalm 51…

Create in me a clean heart, O God

And renew a right spirit within me

Create in me a clean heart, O God

And renew a right spirit within me

Cast me not away from Thy presence, O Lord

And take not Thy Holy Spirit from me

Restore unto me the joy of Thy salvation

And renew a right Spirit within me – Amen

One thought on “Admitting in the Shower

  1. One of the all time favorite hymns around the campfire for forgiven sinners must be Amazing Grace. God always brings healing as we sing the beautiful lyrics…

    1. Amazing grace! how sweet the sound,
    That saved a wretch; like me!
    I once was lost, but now am found,
    Was blind, but now I see.
    2. ‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
    And grace my fears relieved;
    How precious did that grace appear
    The hour I first believed!
    3. The Lord hath promised good to me,
    His word my hope secures;
    He will my shield and portion be
    As long as life endures.
    4. When we’ve been there ten thousand years,
    Bright shining as the sun,
    We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
    Than when we first begun.
