Cleaning Time

Philippians 3:13 Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead

Ever since a young child I have always dedicated the week between Christmas and New Years to clean my room. As an adult I go through the house and donate or trash what can be donated or trashed. After I met Jesus as my Lord I started adding something to the house cleaning. I now include spiritual cleaning during that week. I take time to ask God what in me needs to have His light shed and where I need His cleansing. This time goes deeper than my normal times of confession and repentance through the year. I have a long way to take hold of the fruits of God’s Holy Spirit, which reflect His image, but I am determined to push on with Him. Won’t you join me?
