Pick up what’s left behind.
I mop and clean things that aren’t mine,
Scrub stains which I can find.
One by one, I clean your rooms,
Throw trash out you don’t need,
Clean up dishes, use my broom,
Wash windows – help you see.
But there’s a place where I can’t clean,
You find there many stains,
A room that’s locked, no one has seen,
Your heart, where sin remains.
Give Christ the key and let Him in!
He wipes the toughest spot.
Open your heart – repent from sin!
He cleans stains with His blood.
(Heidi Viars, 2013)
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
1 John 1:9 (NASB)
“Father, help me, even in the seemingly small ways, to shine for you.
Thank you for having cleansed me from all unrighteousness.
Thank you for having washed my heart with your blood.
I could have never cleaned it on my own”
