After 3 years in the making, she is finally here—my first Devotional—God Has A Scrub Brush. There were many days spent in agony and tears as God walked through the rooms of my spiritual house. There were some rooms I did not want to even enter, much less clean out. I wanted to keep those old hurts and haunts buried there in the midst of my soul. I thought as long as they were buried no one else would get hurt, but that is not the truth. Those bags of trash—Unforgiveness, Jealousy, Bitterness, Resentment and dare we say it, Hate were killing me. I was the one who was being hurt. I would and could never live up to my potential in Christ as long as I allowed those things to have dominion in His territory. I learned through many tears, that it was only by placing them in the hands of God that I could be totally free. Now I am not saying that I still don’t allow a piece of trash to be thrown in every now and then. But, I try with all my strength to see it for what it truly is—A stumbling block to stop me from being who God destined me to be. It took me about 6 months to write chapter 3. A long 6 months. There were days that I did nothing but cry. I could not explain what was happening to others, except that God was doing a work here. It was hard going through those bags of trash with Him. So very hard. But I can promise you it was well worth every tear, every anxiety attack and every heart break. The best way I know how to describe the experience is like this—Have you ever held on to a helium balloon? They long to be free and until you release them they will beat you to death. If you are not careful they will wrap you up in their long streamer, tripping you and causing you to fall. If you are not careful they can strangle you. But, if you will let them go, they will go sail towards the sky quicker than you can blink. All the while , they are doing a happy dance and singing, “I am free! I am free!”
