I need a maid...

    This morning I decided it was time to tackle cleaning and re-caulking the shower in my master bath. As I sat in the floor of the shower scrubbing the grout I thought surely there is a better way of doing this.  I climbed out of the shower and headed to the garage where I found several strong cleaning products plus a screwdriver, caulk scraper and old rags. With determination to get this job done I sprayed down the shower with cleaning products and about knocked my self out from the smell. I decided it would probably be wise  to let it air out a little (while I checked my facebook) then I started washing everything down. I realized a regular rag was not going to cut it so I grabbed the closest thing ,you know it, my toothbrush. I have to say it worked very well. Then came the hard part of pulling out all of the old caulk and grout so that I could  make everything look fresh and new.  This is where I hit the wall.  I pried and scraped with very little progress. I can't believe it I even started praying that God would help me get that old stuff out. Finally I leaned back and decided I just needed a maid who would keep my house so clean we would never have to do this kind of stuff again
        How many times do we want to make growing in our Christian walk easier.  You go to church every Sunday expecting the pastor to spoon feed you.  You think maybe I can just buy a product (book, CD, bible study) that will clean me up without any work. Maybe you think, I will just sleep with my bible on my night stand and it will all jump into my head while I sleep. Sometimes this Christian walk of mine is hard and I want to give up and let someone else do it for a little while.
     This week keep your eye on the prize and know that a relationship with our heavenly father is worth the work.                           (Yes I did buy a new toothbrush)

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
Galatians 6:9

  1. Glad you splutter on the new toothbrush but the old one was probably disinfected from the cleaning products. Hey. Maybe there is a deep truth in that! Lol!
