Then you need to feel the need to clean up the mess – throw the empty trash out, throw the dirty laundry in the machine and tidy up your cupboards. Clean the refrigerator, throw out rotting food and wash your dishes. You need to move furniture around to reach the dark forgotten corners and clean your windows from all the dust and rain of past seasons. Lastly, you need to open those windows to allow fresh air into your house. So it is with your spirit. Spiritual trash and spiritual rot exist. We allow pain and trauma to pile up in our lives without cleaning our spiritual houses. There are rooms in our spirit that are dark and scary, from things that have been done to us and things we have done to ourselves. Things that turn our spirits septic from the lack of care we render.
