Lord, it is not the
dirt and clutter in plain sight that nag at me.
It's that hidden dirt..... You know.....
behind the refrigerator, in the closets, under the bed.....
Dirt that no one sees or knows about but me.
It's the same way with
my life, God.
It's those hidden sins I can't keep up with......
those petty little grievances, the grudges, the resentments,
the unspoken harsh feeling, the superior attitudes.
Thoughts and feeling that no one knows about but me.......
and You, God..........
Help me Father, to
clean my heart as I clean my home.
(actually I need help to work on both of them")
Take away all dust and cobwebs of pride, ill feelings, and prejudice.
The dirt behind my refrigerator will never hurt anyone.
The dirt in my heart will.
