Cleaning HouseFriday, May 20, 2011
It is also a good time, as it is every day, to open up the curtains of my own life and examine the contents of my heart. Are there areas within me which need to be dusted off and wiped clean? Is the beauty God wants to reveal covered with a layer of dust? My desire is to have a pure heart and so I come before my Lord and ask Him to make me aware of any areas which need attention.
Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life” (Psalm 139:23-24).
What places are there in our lives where we have let grime accumulate? Does a critical or complaining attitude need to be adjusted? Is there resentment brewing that needs to be dealt with? Or, are we ignoring guilt and past sin? Any area, large or small, that needs to be cleansed can be made new and sparkling when we open the shades and let the Holy Spirit’s light in. As He reveals the areas in our lives that require His touch, God will come alongside us and give us what we need to become right before Him. And when we become right before the Lord, He will bless us with the beautiful, sparkling benefits of a clean house.
Living for Him,
