What A Mess

Recently we put our home on the market so we could pursue our lifelong dream of building a house. Whoop Whoop….

Who knew selling a house could be so much work? How on earth did all this stuff get into my closets? Where did all this dust come from? These are the questions that kept going through my mind as I was getting the house ready to put on the market.

All the time I was cleaning I kept saying…

What A Mess!

Then it dawned on me, our lives become much the same. Before we even realize it our lives become cluttered with negative thoughts and emotions, stress, illness, unhealthy habits, white lies…Hmmm wait, let’s just call it what it is…SIN

As with keeping up a house so to avoid clutter, dust, and depreciation, we must perform routine maintenance on our lives. And, just as there are times we are forced to ask for help around the house,we must call on the name of Jesus; an ever-present help in time of need for a Spiritual cleaning.

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9

Confessing our sins is our Spiritual house cleaning…What is it that is cluttering up your Spiritual Life? It’s time to clean it up so we no longer have to say…

What A Mess

  1. Lee, that is the same way God showed to me about my pond. I was out there trying to clean it, moaning & groaning as I went “man is that ever filthy & the slim is so bad how it ever get this bad” God then spoke to me. “Have you checked your heart lately?” I realizied I had some unforgivness & anger I had not talked to Him about. It was such an eye opener & I have been attempting to keep the pond clear as well as my heart. Fact is that is where a lot of the heart cleaning takes place…setting at the water talking to Him. I love you so much & am so proud of you as well as all my family.
