Housekeeping

MJOF-Devotions

If you’re like me there seems to be precious little time to keep house these days. Early this morning as I was putting my makeup on I noticed the runners in the shower doors were full of crud! How had I not noticed this before! I clean the walls regularly, but somehow had missed this area. Deep in the recesses of metal and glass were areas I had not dealt with. Obviously I had let this go! I decided I needed my eyes checked and proceeded to clean them then and there. I knew I would probably forget it if I didn’t get right to it.

Oh beloved, you are the temple of the Lord. And when God brings to mind things that need housekeeping touchups, run quickly to Him. Let Him fix the things He brings to mind quickly so that you are free to move on to better and brighter things! Just a few moments spent with the Savior, contemplating His mercy and concentrating on His Word will clean your heart, set your mind right and give you fresh insight into what He’s doing today.

God loves you and He’s for you. We have to make time to let God inspect our hearts and clean where it’s needed. There’s always time to get with Him and plenty of time left to do everything else we are all called to do! You are a shining example of His mercy and grace as you live fresh and clean in the Light of His Glory & Grace!

Psalm [51:10] Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. NAS
