Spring Cleaning of the Heart

I know I have to do it each year, but sometimes I don’t.  I know I should do a more thorough cleaning than normal each Spring to get ready for summer.  Either with open windows or the ac running, the last thing I need is a dust storm inside my house.

My back can feel it when I move the furniture, but having it clean in all the hidden places pays off way past the happy finish of strain.

I sensed a prompting of the Spirit this morning to take a look at my heart as I read these words Matthew 15:8 ‘This people honors me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me;” (NRSV)  What is the condition of my heart today?  Am I harboring any resentments, anxieties or fears?  Has my precious faith been covered with dust from lack of use?  Am I trusting God with every area of my life?

Today I am going to let the Holy Spirit vacuum out all worries, doubts, and sins so my faith in God will be in good working order.   He does the strain and I get the gain.
