Spring Clean

24 04 2009

Hey guys,

 

So the last couple weeks we’ve been remodeling the WYM office and it’s been a chance to reorganize and do some spring cleaning and purging of stuff.  It’s a real cleansing process to do spring cleaning not only of your stuff but also of your self.  

 

Are there things in your life that are cluttering your time and energy?

 

Are there people who take more from you than they give?

 

Are there mindless, time-sucking activities that are consuming time that could be spent in another way?

 

How does it affect your life when you are in need of a good spring clean?  As busyness consumes us we find fewer and fewer uncluttered spaces in our lives.  How do you think God feels about that?  Last weekend we celebrated Easter…we celebrated the death and resurrection of the One who came to make our lives clean.

Now we look inside, and what we see is that anyone united with the Messiah gets a fresh start, is created new. The old life is gone; a new life burgeons! Look at it! All this comes from the God who settled the relationship between us and him, and then called us to settle our relationships with each other. God put the world square with himself through the Messiah, giving the world a fresh start by offering forgiveness of sins.  2 Cor. 5:16-19 (MSG)

 

Are you living your life as a new creation in Christ inside and out?  Most times the outside, our lives, is a good reflection of the inside, our hearts.  We find ways to stay busy and preoccupy ourselves with more and more things and more and more obligations so we don’t have to clean house.

 

Even as you find yourself running around in your busyness, may you take some time to do a little spring cleaning of your heart and of your life.

 

To the King!

Katy
