The Law Of “Clean-A-Tivity!!”

Standard

If you know me…

Or, you’ve read my blog during this year…

You know I hate cleaning!

Oh, I love a clean house…

And basically work hard to keep it that way…

But when it gets away from me…

I give up

It defeats me!!

So I think there should be a law!

So everyone will know the state of the “clean-a-tivity” of my house!

The Law of “Clean-A-Tivity!”

My house is spotless=Come visit, stay over!!

“I just got done cleaning my house from top to bottom…

Dusting fans, cleaning windows, dusting furniture, mopping floors!

So come on over and stay a few days!!”

My house is clean=Come for lunch or dinner!

“Let’s have party!!

Ha!  Even use the bathrooms!”

My house is messy=Let’s meet somewhere for lunch!

“I do this a lot!!”

My house is dirty=Even I can’t stand it!

“Have company????  No, I really couldn’t!!”

Keeping a house clean is hard work…

Maybe you have help…

I have my son!  Ha!

For days on end, this summer…

I didn’t even get past the mailbox after cleaning…

It was such a mess and I was so far behind…

I just had to keep at it!

Day after day…

I kept thinking of my goal!!!!

I was determined my house would be cleaned BEFORE school started back again…

And BEFORE my summer vacation was completely gone!!

Talking about a clean house…

Makes me think about having a clean heart…

It’s hard to keep either of them that way!

Help me, Lord!!

Psalm 51:10

“Create in me a clean heart,

O God;

and renew a right spirit within me.”

Yes, Jesus, I pray…

Renew my mind and spirit…

Purify my heart and motives…

Sanctify my life for You!!

Is your heart right???

Can Jesus come and stay in your heart???

Or, is He just allowed to visit?

Can He just pop in?

Or do you say, “No way!”

Or, do you need to know when He’s coming???

Another Law of “Clean-A-Tivity!”

My heart is spotless=Jesus lives there!

My heart is clean=Jesus can visit!

My heart is messy=Jesus, let me know when you’re coming, so I can straighten up!

My heart is dirty=Jesus, you wouldn’t want to pop in here, even I can’t stand myself!

Jesus creates in us a clean heart…

Guard your heart!

It takes diligence on our part…

Ask for forgiveness immediately…

Don’t let things get away from you…

And pile up…

To the point where you’ll feel defeated…

And give up!!

Keep your heart clean…

Be aware…

Pray!

Ask Jesus for help!!

It’s much easier to keep a spotless House/Heart clean…

Than constantly picking up in a messy, dirty House/Heart…

Your mind is clear…

Not distracted by chaos and clutter!!

Let Jesus do the heavy cleaning to change your heart…

You’ll then be able to see the smallest speck of dirt…

And deal with it immediately!!

By confessing and receiving forgiveness!!

Proverbs 4:23

“Above all else, guard your heart,
   

 for everything you do flows from it.”

Amen!!
