I Will Give You A New Heart

The sponge was dry and stiff; devoid of moisture.
Then it found a clear, warm, pool of refreshing water.
It absorbed the wet warmth, drinking, taking in, filling every empty and needy space.
Now the sponge is pliant, full, soft and has some wet warmth to give back.
It must stay in the pool in order to receive and give.

My soul was dry and stiff; devoid of moisture.
Then it found the presence of God and His people.
The Holy Spirit filled all the empty and needy spaces.
Now my soul is pliant, full, and soft.  It has some warmth to give back.
I must stay in God’s presence in order to receive and give.                                          
                                                                                       From my journal 7-8-92

I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.  Ezekiel 36:26

Blessings, Dottie


  1. Dottie,
    I had just written (like 10 minutes ago)about an answered prayer concerning this very thing. Thank you for posting this, it serves as a confirmation that God has truly done something in my life today.

    I took the verse you said here and added it to my own post, because it's exactly what God is doing for me. Thanks again!

  2. This is very inspiring. Thank you for sharing it with us

  3. Thanks for all the comments. I think the Holy Spirit inspired this. I wrote it 22 years ago a couple of years after we returned to faith and to church. Praise God.
