Renewal Mountain, © 2010 Robbie Pruitt


heart of stone
taken out
put in a new
heart of flesh
washed clean

dirty idols
thrown down
New Spirit within
His people
walking the promised land
with our God
delivered and clean
we trod

Listen to this scripture and poem here: Ezekiel 36:24-29 and Renewal

Ezekiel 36:24-29

“ ‘For here’s what I’m going to do: I’m going to take you out of these countries, gather you from all over, and bring you back to your own land. I’ll pour pure water over you and scrub you clean. I’ll give you a new heart, put a new spirit in you. I’ll remove the stone heart from your body and replace it with a heart that’s God-willed, not self-willed. I’ll put my Spirit in you and make it possible for you to do what I tell you and live by my commands. You’ll once again live in the land I gave your ancestors. You’ll be my people! I’ll be your God! “ ‘I’ll pull you out of that stinking pollution. . .”
