Morning Prayer, Friday, April 19, 2019 - WORD(S) OF THE DAY: SPIRITUAL SPRING CLEANSING
Father God, help me to rid my heart and life of anything and anyone that prevents me from living my best life. Amen
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans 12:2
Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right[b] spirit within me. Psalm 51:10
“We would do ourselves a tremendous favor if we would get rid of the people and things that are no longer of service to our highest good.” Every year, millions of us go through and clean out closets and other areas of our home and call it “spring cleaning.:” The reason we go through this cleaning process is because there are things in our homes that serve no useful purpose and are just taking up space. Some of that stuff we really do not want to get rid of so we push it back in the closet but for the most part we do clean out some of the things no longer needed. What if we did that in our lives? Think about this. What if there are some people in your life taking up space that really belongs to someone else. That person always around you with negative vibes. That person you choose to give your ear to when crisis or struggles strike. Yes, we sometimes give our ear or attention to people who do not mean us well. Look around at your circle of influence. Is it healthy, whole, positive, and inspiring? Do the people you hold near and dear encourage and uplift you? Or, is your life cluttered with people who seem to pull you down? Maybe this is a good time to think about the spiritual clutter in your life. Sometimes, that clutter could be thoughts we are holding onto that we need to let go off. God may be wanting to bless you, but you are too busy listening to people you think have vital information to your level of happiness or maybe you can't hear God because you are listening to your own mindset, thoughts or ideas. Now would be a good time while you are doing spring cleaning to do a little spiritual cleansing to get rid of that which is not beneficial to you living your best and blessed life.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.." John 3:16
