Putting out the garbage

When I got home tonight I went out and dragged the garbage out to the curb. It was a busy day and I was tired. I almost decided to let it go. But I knew that if I didn't tend to this tonight, that I would end up being sorry about it later.

A thought hit me after I came in. The same thing is true with the "garbage" in our lives. God calls us to dump it on him every day. Actually he calls us to come to him and confess our sins so he can forgive us and restore us. If we don't do this on a regular basis, it builds up in our lives and creates all kinds of mess. We get piles on top of piles and the problems seem to multiply exponentially.

So it is a good idea, no matter how busy or tired or whatever other excuses you have... to make sure you spend a little time with Jesus every night. It will be a blessing to you and you will be able to get a fresh start to your day.
