My thoughts are lifted up, and my life is renewed.

The ashes used in many traditions for Ash Wednesday come from burning the prior year's palms. In the same way, I release old habits and thoughts as I prepare for the arising of new life in me. Today I pray:

"Lord, help me walk a path of renewal. I lift up my old life for purification, confident a new life rises from those ashes. I release every limitation I believe is true about my worth and power, my beauty and creativity. I sweep away every debt I believe anyone owes me. I cast off every condemnation I carry. I pray with an open heart, releasing limits, pain and false beliefs with ease. I accept new wisdom, understanding and peace with grace. For the gifts of my journey of purification and renewal, I am grateful. Amen."

No one puts new wine into old wineskins ... but one puts new wine into fresh wineskins.--Mark 2:22
