It’s cleaning day at the Garibaldi house!
We’ve enjoyed a wonderful week with family visiting and now it is time to get the house back in order. As I was cleaning the bathroom today, my heart was convicted. Admittedly, cleaning the bathroom is not my favorite chore. However, one aspect of the task that I do love is that there is such an obvious reward when the work is done. Clearly the bathroom is grimy and dingy, then…clean…clean…clean…and miraculously, it sparkles once again! If I am focused at the task, this can all happen in a matter of minutes!
The scrubbing today made me think: Wouldn’t be wonderful if my heart was as easy to clean? I’ve been so focused today on the housecleaning, but maybe what I really need is some good heart-cleaning!
“Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow…Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.”
(Psalm 51:7, 10 ESV )
Take a minute today to put down the to-do list and check your heart. If you, like me, need a little spiritual scrub-a-dub-dub, rejoice in the fact that we have a Savior who is a miracle-worker! He can clean a heart in an instant – and He doesn’t even break a sweat!
