Haven’t joined in with the writers at Lisa-Jo Baker’s 5-minute Friday in a while, I thought today I’d come out of hiding and write on the prompt: MESS; funny, how nemesis kind of sounds like mess and my laundry room is mine.
I consider myself a fairly organized person but there is a room that just seems to get beyond control. Our laundry room. MyMess.
But this week I am “gettin’ her done” once and for all. I am determined.
The dreaded corner.
The clutter that has to GO!
Clean, tidy shelves. Hope my daughter sees this!
Still some stuff – but hey, we live here!
I’m only one-third of the way through the room but it is already looking better and by week’s end it will be like a brand new space!
This morning as I pondered the room and the fact that it’s Wednesday, which means new blog post, the Lord reminded me that He has NO nemesis – nothing and no one is beyond His reach and His interest. He can take our mess and turn it into something glorious and worthwhile. This week as I clean and de-clutter I want to be mindful of what the Lord has done in me – the messy, dirty, and cluttered life I laid before Him years ago and pleaded, “Fix me, God, because I sure cannot fix myself.” I am a work in process with a plan of action and my goal is to honor my Lord and Savior in everything I do and say and write!
Time to ‘fess up, do you have a nemesis?
