getting rid of toilets :)

 I had a movie moment from “The Help” yesterday when I took the trash out.  We recently had to replace a few toilets in our house for various reasons & I hauled the broken ones to the curb, along with our other trash, hopeful that the trash guys would pitch the “thrones” into a place of higher glory ,)  Thankfully, we kept the old toilets in the boxes that the new toilets came in, hoping to avoid offending the sensitivities of more delicate people.

With all that being said, I thought about how our really nice trash guys come by once a week & haul away the collection of trash that the five of us have accumulated over the course of a week.  Maybe I take this trash maintainence for granted because it’s just part of life’s routines – which has started me to thinking.  I think that from time to time, we need to clean out the trash in our thoughts & stuff that corrupts our hearts / minds by allowing the Holy Spirit to shine truth into our lives & de-clutter the accumulation of dribble, froth, deception, dysfunction & general refuse that we can accumulate in our hearts & minds.  Paul says that whatever is true, honorable, right, pure, lovely & a good report that we are to think on these things – the rest can get thrown into the trash & washed away by Jesus’ blood 🙂

  1. Last week I had a “retro” moment only to come t othe realization of what I used to think was “up-beat / hip / cool” was actually mello-dramatic babble that was about “defeat / debt / trouble / heartbreak & dysfunction”. I mean the tunes are still cool and of course I new all the words to sing along, but what was my inner-testimony and daily-confession. Yikes! I mean it was sweet , but it gave me no rightousness, peace, or joy in the long run. Maybe just confessing or singing along was what I was going to get. Watch OUT!! The tough thing was I was at a public work-out place doing my cardio heart conditioning but my soul was taking a beating because of the old imprints from catchy tunes I used to sing-a-long with that were not edifying. So if you can’t beat them, then time to get your own MP3 player and jam on out to Jesus! Amen.

  2. Yes, it is amazing how trash gets inro our minds. My sister hits on me for money a lot, and, especially, her attitude, makes me extremely angry. i need to memorize Paul’s scripture.
