Bible Verse Poetry – Create in Me a Clean Heart

I’m so invigorated by the passion flowing within me as I set aside time every day to read my Bible and let God speak to me as I write. I am working on a new project. I am writing poetry inspired by Bible verses. I have written 12 poems so far, with a goal of having 50 written by my birthday in March 2020.

What is your favorite Bible verse(s)? Share in the comment section and I will work it into my project!

“Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.” – Psalm 51:10

 

Dusted in ash,

My heart often lacks

What I need to be a worthy servant.

 

Create in me a clean heart,

Dust off the parts

     In my soul

So that better I can know

     You.

 

Create in me a renewed spirit

Color me wonderfully vivid

So that I can praise

     Your name.

 

Create in me a pure soul,

So I may honor You

     Wherever I go

That I can live a life that shows

     Your light.

  1. Ps 42 especially vs 1
    Psalms 42 ​ As the deer pants for the water brooks,
    So pants my soul for You, O God.
    My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.
    When shall I come and appear before God?
    My tears have been my food day and night,
    While they continually say to me,
    “Where is your God?”
    When I remember these things,
    I pour out my soul within me.
    For I used to go with the multitude;
    I went with them to the house of God,
    With the voice of joy and praise,
    With a multitude that kept a pilgrim feast.
    Why are you cast down, O my soul?
    And why are you disquieted within me?
    Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him
    For the help of His countenance.
    O my God, my soul is cast down within me;
    Therefore I will remember You from the land of the Jordan,
    And from the heights of Hermon,
    From the Hill Mizar.
    Deep calls unto deep at the noise of Your waterfalls;
    All Your waves and billows have gone over me.
    The Lord will command His lovingkindness in the daytime,
    And in the night His song shall be with me—
    A prayer to the God of my life.
    I will say to God my Rock,
    “Why have You forgotten me?
    Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?”
    As with a breaking of my bones,
    My enemies reproach me,
    While they say to me all day long,
    “Where is your God?”
    Why are you cast down, O my soul?
    And why are you disquieted within me?
    Hope in God;
    For I shall yet praise Him,
    The help of my countenance and my God.
