Cleaning out the detritousPosted Wednesday, May 20, 2009, at 8:39 AM
EEK time to clean
The Shed is the place all the unwanted things go, the I might need this things, the save this for later things...
SO I started.
First the old vacuum parts went, then boxes i have been saving for Ebay sales..whenever.
Then old car polishes long dried up, and a mattress that does not inflate anymore.
There was so much accumulated junk. I could not believe it.After I cleared everything out, I was able to reorganize and place things so they could be easy to get to.
Cat carriers for emergancies, Have-A-Heart traps for strays,
then Ebay boxes and Lawn mowers.
Man it was amazing, and looked so much better.
I was thinking our spiritual life gets like this too.
We hold onto resentments, old feelings and unforgiveness like I had those old vacuum parts.
These things clutter our spiritual life and make it too stuffed with extras to allow the Holy Spirit to speak to us and clear the air.
Allow God to clean your shed of clutter.
Are you hanging on to a old hurt? Get rid of it, sweep it clean.
Do you have unforgiveness tword someone, I did. I allowed the Holy Spirit to brush that away and fill me with peace.
The resentment went into the Spiritual Wastecan.
Allow the Lord to work in you this week, you'll be glad you did.
