Good morning friend! It is Friday and it is time to clean out the gutters, and put out some pine straw! You are more than welcome to come by and help. I will cook up some good old fashioned hotdogs, and we could have a great time.
This is the first house I ever owned with gutters. I understand it helps direct the water flow from the roof, and it works great when the gutters are free of pine straw and leaves. I am guilty of not cleaning them out as I should, and I have allowed them to get out of hand. Now the water flow is restricted and my gutters are not directing the water to the proper areas. I have been putting this task off for some time, and I have used every excuse under the sun to not get it done. No more excuses! I will free my gutters and let the water flow once again! I will get it done!
What about your spiritual gutters? Has trash and other things clogged them up? Has the spiritual flow been restricted? Have we been so busy with everything else that you have neglected what really needs to be handled? Let today be the day you get it done, and stop making excuses for neglecting your spiritual gutters! David knew what it was like to have his spiritual gutter full of trash, and his water flow all clogged up! He was miserable and desperate, so he cried out to the Lord for help. Hear his cry in Psalm 51:1-2, “Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion, “clean out my gutters.” Wash away all my iniquities and cleanse me from my sin.” Psalm 51:10-12 says, “Create in me a pure hear, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Don’t cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of my salvation!” David used a prayer of forgiveness to clean out his spiritual gutters and it allowed his spirit flow to move again! His joy was restored. Today is the day. Get before the Lord and get it done! Love ya.
