Come On In

Open the door of my heart.
Let yourself in!
*
Don’t mind me, while I am getting this place cleaned up a little.
Don’t mind my clutter.
I am working on throwing some of it out.
*
Lord, I am sorry for making such a mess of this place.
Are you sure you want to live here?
*
I have been collecting many of these things for years.
They seemed so valuable.
But now, they weigh me down.
I kept this stuff, thinking it was of worth.
Now that you are here, I feel silly for thinking these things were treasures.
*
Did you say you want to help?
But what about…? … You know…?…
That place way in the back of my closet?
You don’t want to go there, do you?
*
You have already seen it?
OK! It’s all yours!
Every room, every corner, every hidden place.
I give you my whole heart.
Thanks for coming in and cleaning up!
Thank you for your promise to stay until it is finished.
*
being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

About Heidi Viars

“If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth ...” ― C.S. Lewis ..... In my pursuit of self, I found utter darkness. In my pursuit of truth, I found Jesus, who dispelled the darkness by His forgiveness. Now I follow Him and try to understand Him better. I am a wife, mother of 6, blogger and love taking photographs of sunrises.
