Psalm 24

Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?

She that has clean hands and a pure heart, she who has not lifted up her soul unto vanity, or she that has not sworn deceitfully.

She shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of her salvation.

This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek his face, O Jacob. Selah.

I have been blessed by two teenage girls in my life. I have watched them grow up and am watching them bloom before my eyes. I have seen them accept Jesus Christ as their Savior and I have seen them standing up for the Gospel. I have seen their hearts break for friends that deny Him, and I have seen them bring friends in their life that need stability and family.

I just want it to stay this way. I don't want them to get dirty hands and souls filled with vanity and hearts that are not pure.

But I'm not the one that can make sure that doesn't happen.

So, I will lift them up to the God of their salvation and keep praying for them to seek His face every day.
