Spring Cleaning

“Praise be to the name of God forever and ever; wisdom and power are his. He changes times and seasons . . .”
Daniel 2:20–21

Spring cleaning affords us the opportunity to clear out the cobwebs of winter and sort through the items we may have accumulated while indoors for so long. We can open our windows, sweep out the dust of the past few months, and welcome the warmer weather and gentle breezes of spring.

Clearing the clutter out of our lives, however, requires more than sorting through our old clothes and cleaning our closets, although those tasks certainly help. When we get rid of what’s no longer useful, especially items that drain us of time and energy, we’re pruning our lives to make room for new growth.

Sometimes God prunes our branches for us, even removing items that we may enjoy that aren’t strengthening our faith. He makes room for each new season.

Pray: “Dear God, clean out the worries, guilt, and sinfulness in my heart today. Thank you that you are with me through every season.”
