This House Won’t Clean Itself

Has your house been hit with colds and flus this winter?  Ours just got through about two weeks of first colds, then flus.

Yuck.

The house finally feels good again.  Laundry is caught up again, or nearly anyway (is it ever really caught up?), real meals are being made again, mommy is actually getting dressed in the morning again, and much coffee is being had, let me tell you.

I think everyone is more grumpy when the house is mid-virus and mommy is exhausted and sick too.  I began to rebuke sickness in the name of Jesus’, it was keeping us from the areas we serve in at church, my productivity was depressing, and I pretty much begged the Lord to help me have a more productive week.

It’s not the first time I’ve said it on this blog, but asking the Lord to intervene in your day/week/moment really makes an enormous different.  He’s a gentleman and sometimes He’s just waiting for an invitation.

And I do love putting my praise and worship music on (or the kids’ praise and worship on) and creating an atmosphere that welcomes the Holy Spirit.

Because as much as a house needs to be cleaned physically, it’s even more important to have spiritual cleaning from time to time, and daily welcome the Holy Spirit into your home, and into your day.  It’s the best place to start before attempting to conquer your list.

I’m so thankful for God’s grace.  I’m so thankful that nothing can separate us from the love of Christ.

And I’m so thankful these colds and flus are GONE!  YES!!

Romans 8:31-39 NASB
What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us?  
He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things?  Who will bring a charge against God’s elect? God is the one who justifies;  who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is He who died, yes, rather who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us. Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Just as it is written,
For Your sake we are being put to death all day long;

We were considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”
But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Hope this blesses you…
