November 15

I don’t know about you, but my home office can become a big mess! Stacks of mail, file folders, and other office stuff can pile up, and become a catch-all for clutter or things I’m trying to hide from guest. When I’m home, I get a little lazy, and preoccupied with television, food, and the recliner, so paperwork gets no attention until it becomes necessary. I spent a good portion of the day filing, and moving all that mess, and still didn’t get to the bottom of the stack, but at least I made a little headway. We are closing in on the end of the year, so I need to get everything in order, because tax season is just around the corner. Have you ever noticed that our daily lives reflect a spiritual truth? Things can get messy in our heart, fear, pain, and other thing left unchecked can pile up, making us miserable. As Christians, we need to be free of the clutter. We must get out of the recliner and make an effort to cleanse our hearts. “Tax day” is just around the corner, and we need to be prepared. Make your confession to the Lord, pray, and trust what He’s doing.

"let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water."  Hebrews 10:22
