Out With The Old

I have been doing some spring cleaning which I think I started a little late.  It feels good to purge things that are no longer being used or get rid of old and unwanted items that just seem to collect dust on my shelves.  I am starting to feel like I need to make room for something.  I am not quite sure what it is yet, but I will keep on purging.  I sang  these words  in church recently  “my storage is empty and I am available to you” and it reminded me to think about the life God has given me and how I want to give back to Him.  I need to ask the Holy Spirit to just clean and empty out the internal closet and dust off the shelves.  I can’t let sin settle in or pride trap me in. It amazes me how God controls the pouring in as I do the emptying out.  I love 1 John 1:9 (ESV) which says if we confess our sins God is faithful and just to forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.  God’s word promises that He will fill us, strengthen and renew us. 

Prayer: Dear Lord, clean out my cabinets of sin, remove fear and doubt, cleanse me, and wash me  inside and out. Release me from the stuff that holds me back, the old and messy things that try to hide inside my heart. Purify me Lord and make me to be what you would have me to be. Amen

  1. My storage it empty and I am available to you. Amen sister Lori. Purging is of great value to us and it helps makes room for what is good. Overloads leaves no room for growth and blocks the positive flow and lead to stagnate results. This is a relatable reality for many of us. This remind me of why I render the service to others of “Keeping It Neat’ πŸ‘πŸΎπŸ˜ŠπŸ’― thank you for this wonderful write up.
