Yesterday (April 14) we had a good "spring cleaning" at the church facilities. We cleaned out and swept the attic, washed windows, scrubbed and sanitized the nursery, did some much needed landscaping, cleaned out closets and cabinets, dusted the window blinds, and did those necessary things that generally get put off for lack of motivation, time, or weather. There were 19 brave souls who ventured to the building to do these things that so desperately needed to be done. Thank you to those who were able to give of your time and energy! The church facility looked fantastic this morning! Again thank you, thank you!
Sometimes I think we need to do some "spring cleaning" in our spiritual lives. We need to look at our lives to see if there needs to be a re-arrangement of priorities or a "throwing out" of apathy, bitterness, wrath, doubt, fear, malice, hate, and other sins of the heart and life. Maybe we need to "vacuum up" some bad habits, or "dust off" some good intentions, or "organize" our thoughts and motives. Come to think of it, we may need to go off on a spring mini-retreat for half a day with just our Bible, a pencil, and a yellow legal pad. Spend some time away from the phone, computer, etc., and pray about your relationship with the Lord. Ask Him to help you do some "spring cleaning" on your life and living.
