The Messiah, deliverer of our darkest thoughts and actions, is the only answer to our soulish woes. Our TRUE atonement lies in His resurrection power. As David once pled, “Create in me a clean heart, Oh GOD, and renew in me a resolute spirit…” (Ps 51:12 CJV). Oh how I treasure this season as we enter into the fall feasts into the season of our joy! Please allow me to share personal experience which occurred on the cusp of Elul.
