I have a mighty mountain of garbage in front of my house – because the garbage person has failed to haul it off. No, I don’t pay anyone to take off the trash. I ain’t the man. I’m the woman. There ain’t nobody else to load it up and on out – nobody but me. And this week I’ve fallen short in doing my duty. The longer I wait, guess what. Right on. More trash. This reminds me if I don’t seek the Lord daily in examining my heart, and if I don’t confess, seek, and receive forgiveness daily from Him and others when I need to, my molehill becomes a mountain.
And mountains of garbage don’t just smell. They stink! I am blessed the Lord allows me to come running to His mercy seat each time I mess up so I don’t have a not-so-pretty-to-say-the-least pileup of sin. I had a friend in town this week and didn’t want to take the trash to the dump with her in the car, so I waited. But one thing is for sure about the messes in my heart and life. I don’t like to wait.
The Lord is always waiting with open arms, His love and mercy never running out. There is no trash company to haul off my sin; it’s my responsibility to go the one whose mercy endures forever.
When was the last time you hauled off the trash? Why not start now………..
1Jn_1:9 “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
Psa_106:1 Praise ye the LORD. O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.
