During spring cleaning seasons I to go through our closets, attics, and garages to figure out what’s for keeps, what’s to give away and what simply needs to be thrown away. It always amazes me how much stuff we have. And I never realize it until it’s time to clean. Honestly, any other time of year it’s easy to just keep all that junk out of sight and forget that it even exists. But when it’s time to clean there is no more pretending. I must eventually come face to face with all my junk and do the hard labor of cleaning it up.
I think the same is true for our souls. We all have some junk that needs cleaning. Some issues we would like hidden behind the walls of our hearts. But then struggles come; the type that bring out all our issues, and there’s no more room to hide. So in this week’s study, we discuss the importance of being honest about the issues we have hidden deep inside our hearts. You’ll be encouraged to know that when Jesus is with us, there is no secret too dark that His light can’t penetrate.
