In keeping with the Lent theme, I am doing some spring cleaning. Even though our house is immaculate (my hubby is retired Air Force), there still seems to be places where dust bunnies hide. They have a way of creeping in when and where you least expect. It's always best to pull out appliances and large pieces of furniture to find the obvious hiding places. But right out there in the open, can you see it? It's over in the corner where you were sure you had cleaned dozens of times.
Have you ever felt that way in your spiritual life? Where you are sure you have dealt with old hurts or long ago, forgotten emotions that somehow find their way back into your daily life. It has been that way for me recently. Honestly, I'm not one to share about myself. I long ago built a wall around myself and my emotions. Yet, it seems that God has been dealing with me in this particular area.
I have been finding it more and more difficult to write or come up with ideas for this blog spot. An idea will pop into my head only to be dismissed by notions like: that's not very interesting; no one wants to hear that; or you'll only open yourself up to ridicule and hurt. STOP! I know in my heart there is not a single one of you who would purposely ridicule or hurt me. But those old dust bunnies that still linger in their hidden spots have a tendency to rear their ugly little heads.
The best way to deal with them is to bring them out into the open and expose them to the Light because darkness has no power over the Light. So today, This Day, I am exposing dust bunnies to the Light. The Light will open my eyes so I can see as He sees. Not with fear, but with love and compassion.
Peace and Joy,
