Spring Cleaning for Your Spirit
(www.whatchristianswant to know.com)
Spring is in the air! It is time for a fresh start! Many of us dread this season because of the projects we have and how much time it will take to complete them, yet we have to agree it is wonderful when our work is finished.
Just as we work on cleaning our homes, it might be time for a spiritual cleaning so we can be prepared and used by God.
Dust off your Bible - (I have kept thy precepts and thy testimonies: for all my ways are before thee. Psalm 119:168).
Wipe your eyes - (...weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. Psalm 30:5)
Vacuum up the influences of the world - (Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 1 John 2:15)
Shampoo away the build-up of an unforgiving attitude - (And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil. Luke 11:4)
Wax and buff your time in prayer - (And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint Luke 18:1)
Reseal your faith commitment to God - (But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation 1 Thessalonians 5:8)
Polish your thought life - (For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: Matthew 15:19)
Clean up your motives - (Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.1 Corinthians 4:5)
Rake up the brush and deadness from seasons past - (For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. Romans 8:13)
Those who long for a new start in their spiritual walk are unafraid of what it takes. Your Heavenly Father longs for you to grow spiritual fruit in the abundance of grace that He has granted you.
