Clean · Forgiveness · Repentance · Rest

cleaning…

What is it about cleaning…? everything seems lighter… brighter…?

In the clean… I feel a lightness… like a burden lifted…

For those who believe… who’ve had their souls cleansed by His blood… we don’t always feel clean…

In this time of the Lord’s favor… we live in sin-full flesh… with souls eternally set free from sin…

It’s an odd time… but with regular recognition of sin… seeking forgiveness… choosing repentance… striving toward holiness… we can… here and now… rest in the clean…

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

1John 1:9 ESV
