Welcome to the Greene Street Letters. It has become my venue for sharing what is going on at Vineyard Recovery Church. Don't let the word Church scare you. The Greene Street Letters is a daily posting to simply say that there is more to life than what you see. More to life than "stuff". My simple take of 60+ years of following Jesus. Some days were good days...some days I managed to get off in the ditch. He is worthy of the pursuit, so that is what I do........I pursue Jesus in everything I do. Not the Jesus of the church. Not the Jesus of the denomination. Nothing wrong with those things, but Jesus is so much more. Thanks for dropping by and I hope you return from time to time to stop and ponder your own relationship with Jesus. God on you....mb

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....
