Junk



Psalm 51:7
Purify me from my sins, and I will be clean. Wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.

Time to get rid of all the junk that we carry around.
Junk that slow us down. Junk that sucks the very strength and life we need to make it through the day. Junk that we have picked up, piece by piece every day.
It didn't seem heavy at first. We barely noticed. But string together some days.....which add up to years, and you find yourself with a burden and a load that our shoulders were never meant to carry.
Maybe that's why the apostle Paul wrote.."Cast all your cares (Anxieties) on Him because He cares for you.

So if you did a "junk" inventory, what would you find.
Would it be junk like:
Bitterness
Unforgiveness
jealousy
self-loathing
anger
sexual immorality
pornography
bitterness
lying
manipulation
greed....
Turns out that the junk we carry is a whole host of things that eat at our soul, fill our head with junk thoughts, and keep us from seeing and hearing Jesus and the truth.
Chunk it today....
Tell Jesus, " I am so tired of carrying this stufff around. I give it to you. Forgive me for trying to live my life and control it without you. Please let Your Holy Spirit come and juice me, fill me, dwell and live inside me.I will follow you."
Amen and Amen

God on you today....
