Spring Cleaning

Well, yes, I'm doing some Spring cleaning. De-cluttering in all kinds of ways. Closets, cabinets, drawers, and even my heart. Clutter builds up everywhere you don't want it. My heart has been so heavy with what is going with another person, along with what they think and say.

Heavy is the perfect word. I let my heart fill with emotions till it weighs me down and everytime I think of this person, it isn't positive at all.

This is not my character.

This is not me.

During this Easter season, I have to be reminded of His love and constant grace for me, His flawed and sinful child. Jesus gave his life for me. I need to extend this LOVE to someone who needs it. I need to let all the hurt go and forgive, even if they never acknowledge what's been done or said. UGH, this is hard, but I have to cleanse myself.

My life is filled with God's incredible blessings!

Prayer from a December 2010 Proverbs 31 Ministries devotion:

Dear Lord, help me to forgive one person today. I lift up my heart. I won’t pretend that it doesn’t hurt, but I am willing to forgive. I’m not always big enough, but You are and I am grateful. I won’t forgive based on a person’s response, or even what is fair, but instead I will trust that You desire my heart to be free so that You can love in and through me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
