“Your Iniquities have made a separation between you and your God” Isaiah 59:2
“How on earth did this basket of socks fill up so fast?!” I thought to myself. I remembered over the Summer emptying the dryer and saying to myself “I will get to those later” and “Socks, they aren’t that important…it’s sandal season!” . No big deal, right? Well, it’s Fall now and guess what…we need socks. UGH. Just look at all these socks I have to go through and pair up. My “putting off” added up quickly didn’t it? Boy do I wish I would have just paired them up as they came out of the dryer…the shame! (hehe)
My little predicament really makes me realize how quickly my sins add up if I don’t get to the heart of the issue soon enough. A little sin here…a little sin there…then all of a sudden I have a overwhelming amount of catching up to do …repenting, making amends, fixing to do. Just a few sins a day add up to 1,095 a year…which is probably the number of socks I have in that silly basket. Ridiculous.
Please take a moment Dear Friends and think about something in your life that has been “adding up”…arguments, negative thoughts, bills, missing church…whatever the case may be, we all have a basket of socks. Ask the Lord in this very moment to search your heart and have the strength to change what is wrong and what is crippling you. Be free in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Now, excuse me…I have some catching up to do….
“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord”
