This is such an important message Dear Sister Deborah!
This line you wrote brought this message home for me like a bolt of lightning flashing before me because is sums up many things that I’ve learned through my experiences, some the hard way and from the Holy Scriptures which have enabled me to realize how lacking people really are in “complete genuine humility.”
“His sacrificial love for us, and how sinful we are, we could feel that deep brokenness in our heart. We could finally realize and feel with all genuineness that we are nothing without God.”
Only when most people are desperate or reached the end of their rope do they stop being belligerent and so self-serving as they go on living life as trouble makers or takers and not givers! Especially now, these times we are in with so much to be had or tempted by; fool’s gold if you will, and all that glitters is not gold!
These abundant temptations set before our eyes in today’s world are a tantalizing and hypnotizing allure for so many who are seeking to get more and have everything they can get their greedy hands on; when they already have far too much already to be simple and genuine humbled children of God! When people have so many things and want more stuff to pile on top of what they already have, they are not able to be humble or truly appreciate even the gift of life itself but are instead possessed by the things they think they own, but that actually own them, all trappings of the Devil in his material world of temptations, desires and pleasures which all pull a person’s soul away from living in the Spirit of God which is totally separate and above all of this materialism! Madonna sang how she is a Material Girl, Lady Gaga sings Born This Way, while Taylor Swift in a horrific film montage music video of pure decadence and materialistic perversions which are so far removed from anything Godly, and for us in this world, being totally devoid of Christianity but full of giving homage to Satan!
What I’m saying is that people nowadays have slipped into an acceptance of a beastly materialistic way of life and mindset that is destroying everything that is good in this world, especially anything sacred or innocent just like what Adam and Eve lost in the Garden and more importantly “that spark of purity in themselves” the remaining “Remnant of God,” His actual “Holy Spirit,” and thereby turning their hearts to a toxic mix of debauchery and sin.
Far too many people now give lip service to religion and then go about continuing their sinful pleasures or for the most part leave God and Jesus on the back shelf just in case they get caught up in something they can’t seem to get free of, or even satisfy with more stuff; then and only then will they get down on bent knees trying to be humble and plead in prayer to Jesus for help. But many won’t even do that because they’ve lost that “heart connection with Almighty God” if they had it to begin with, because it’s been smothered and extinguished by all of this decadence and wild freewheeling behavior. So it appears humble supplication is getting more and more nonexistent in many people; and true devout worshiping of God in heaven through our Savior Jesus Christ is not important enough in many people’s lives.
“Jesus answered him, “If you wish to be perfect [that is, have the spiritual maturity that accompanies godly character with no moral or ethical deficiencies], go and sell what you have and give [the money] to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me [becoming My disciple, believing and trusting in Me and walking the same path of life that I walk].” Matthew 19:21
So to me this Scriptural Psalm you’ve included, which one you were so wise to place here, because, this needs to be taken to heart by everyone that seeks their Salvation and wants to live in accordance with the “Will of our Father in heaven.”
“Behold, you desire truth in the inward parts. You teach me wisdom in the inmost place. Purify me with hyssop, and I will be clean. Wash me, and I will be whiter than snow. Let me hear joy and gladness, that the bones which you have broken may rejoice. Hide your face from my sins, and blot out all of my iniquities. Create in me a clean heart, O God. Renew a right spirit within me. Don’t throw me from your presence, and don’t take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of your salvation. Uphold me with a willing spirit.”
– Psalm 51:6-12 (WEB)
Thanks to God Almighty in the precious name of Jesus Christ our Lord, Savior and Redeemer for His word and our opportunity while here on earth to gain access to His everlasting life, the eternal kingdom of God; Paradise!

Repentance involves both emotional and mental reform. What our mind thinks, our emotion feels. In a healthy and normal human body, these two work in coordination. It is difficult to be sad when your mind is happy. It is difficult to be happy when your mind is full of sad thoughts or angry thoughts.
Look back to those times when you did not feel like going to church. Recall the times when you had little desire to open the Bible to read. What was in your mind? Maybe, you were thinking you’re tired and you needed rest, and so you felt unmotivated to go to church. Maybe, you were thinking that you can read the Bible some other time, so you did not feel the urgency or delight to read it right that moment. We think before we feel. This applies too with our thoughts and feelings when we repent…
