Give Me Joy Again

Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and uphold me with a willing spirit. (Psalm 51:12)

We’ve gotten so used to making these mud pies in the slums that we don’t even know what we’re missing out on until we slow down and read words like Psalm 51, verse 12. And we don’t just read them, but we hear them; and David is not just praying, he’s crying: “God, restore to me the joy of your salvation.”
