Love Trash Day

Posted by admin in September 3rd, 2009

Thursdays are trash days around here. I love trash days. I love the idea that we can go through the house and load up all our accumulative trash, put it out at the end of the driveway and know that it’ll be picked up and taken care of. I’ve lived in countries where there is no trash collector. Not pretty. Let me assure you. So, part of my domestic bliss experience here in the US of A is trash day. Love it. Look forward to it every week. Love an empty trash can!

One of the many amazing and wonderful attributes of God is that He gives each of us a trash day too. And believe you me, I need it. I’m blessed that the steadfast love of God never ceases and His mercies never come to an end, in fact, well…they’re new every morning (Lamentations 3). EVERY MORNING! I thank God that as often as I need it, and seriously it’s a lot, I can gather up all the trash in my life and lay it at the cross. I screw up on a regular basis. Screw up here means sin! I’m so thankful that I can take all my sins to the Father and through Jesus’s shed blood on the cross, I can get clean again. First John 1:9, “If we freely admit that we have sinned and confess our sins, He is faithful and just (true to His own nature and promises) and will forgive our sins and continuously cleanses us from all unrighteousness—everything not in conformity to His will…” (Amplified). Wow. Continuously cleanses us. Mmmmm. That’s good stuff. So today, all day, as many times as I need it, I can take the trash out and be clean ‘cause of what Jesus did on the cross. Thank you Jesus. Thank you Father. Thank you Holy Spirit. I love being clean! Let me close by kickin’ it old school. Remember this old hymn?

Nothing But the Blood

What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Refrain
Oh! precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

For my pardon, this I see,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
For my cleansing this my plea,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Refrain

Nothing can for sin atone,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
Naught of good that I have done,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Refrain

This is all my hope and peace,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
This is all my righteousness,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Refrain

Now by this I’ll overcome—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus,
Now by this I’ll reach my home—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Refrain

Glory! Glory! This I sing—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus,
All my praise for this I bring—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Refrain
Oh! precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Peace.

Amen, sista!

Love, Love that song. Adored it the first time I can remember singing it and feeling clean, really clean inside and out.
Remarkable words, true words, mighty words, devil chasing words…
