Day 8... A Bad Habit
At some point however, things need to be brought out in the open and put away. I plug away at this bit by bit. I sit crosslegged on the floor in my bedroom and sort through bins of crayons and soap carvings, drawings and toys, tools and craft supplies. And I think....this habit of mine is a little like sin.
He who conceals his transgressions will not prosper,
But he who confesses and forsakes them will find compassion. Proverbs 28:13
My spiritual health can too be plagued by 'stashing'...by tucking little things that 'don't really matter' into corners of my heart. At some point I need to look them square in the eye and confess them, correct them, clean them out.
I am doing pretty good at conquering this physical stashing habit. Once all the kids are grown and gone, I'm sure I will have figured it out. The spiritual one however, won't be completed until I step into the presence of Christ. And I am thankful that He is willing to do the cleansing.
