Deep Clean


by: Sis. Risha Cross


Sometimes we need a deep clean. I was cleaning this morning - more than the usual dust, vacuum, wipe counters, etc. I was on my knees and reaching into places I don't normally get to on a regular basis. Found some dirt and mess that needed to go. Feels good to have it gone.

Sometimes we do what we should - I read my Bible everyday this week, I prayed and I thanked God for my blessings... the "usual," and I was sincere. But I need to be deep cleaning - on my knees asking God to renew me, remove anything He doesn't like and search me. It is definitely humbling to be on our knees and ask God to remove anything that needs to go but it's necessary if we really want to be more like Christ. Nothing is hidden from Him - but we need His help to see it sometimes...before it becomes sinful.

"Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: and see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting."

Psalms 139:23-24
