When Your In One Place But Your Heart Is Some Where Else

My Life, My Love, My All by Kirk Franklin

Where your treasure is therefore your heart is also Matt 6:21
For sometime now I feel like I have been in this struggle of where I belong since the closing of my former church home. I have been in this place of searching or more like transition for what I felt was “home” For 37 years of my life I was in 1 place. Never went from church to church, because I was always taught to be committed where you are. Then God decided to disrupt my life in every way manageable with what felt like a stripping away, cutting back, pruning or surgery which all doesn’t feel good. Over the years I haven’t gotten comfortable with where I was whether it was my job, place to live, etc. because the moment I became comfortable here comes God shaking stuff up. Transition is always continual in life as we go from Glory to Glory. But what happens when you find yourself in a compromising state where you are in one place but your heart is somewhere else.You love where you are to some degree, but yet your unsettled, you haven’t found at one point you thought was “There”. You are still unfilled in the purpose of God for your life. When what’s in you has grown outside of where you are. It leaves you in an uneasy position or feeling like ok God what do I do now, do I leave or do I stay, but where shall I go. It’s like when you’re in a torn relationship. You know the time has come to end it, but instead of letting go you hang on. You become comfortable and settle. You become distant, on edge, irritable and you have no peace. You care about them, you even love them, but you’re not in love with them. Then there’s someone else who has peaked your interest. When you see them you get these butterflies in your stomach. There is this peace you feel when your around them. Your compatible in every way. Everything flows as if a perfect fit when sticking your hand into a glove that is the right size, your hands feel warm, secure and protected. Your desire to be with them becomes stronger the more you are around them or communicating with them. You get that gut feeling and the sense of yeah!this is the one, this is where I belong. Even in that you still have to use caution because everything that “feels” right doesn’t mean it is right. In all things we still have to consult the council of the most high God. In spite of what we feel we don’t want to make a hasty decision without the direction of God. It’s all in God’s timing and we must trust Him still. #CLEANTHISHOUSE

The Oven Cleaner

You Have My Heart by Farris Long

Nobody Greater by Vashawn Mitchell

I was starting to clean out the oven in the apartment and Wow what a challenge this is going to be. I have never had to clean out an oven before, thank God for that, so I’m clueless.  My mother told me exactly what to do. So I started spraying the oven immediately. It immediately foamed up and dirt began to surface, but the fumes OMG! So as I let it set I began to clean up else where. When I came back to it was filthy and had picked up so much stuff. I kept rinsing the rag repeatedly until the water was clear, but to my surprise there was still a lot left in the oven because I had only scratched the surface of what remained. So in order for me to get rid of what was left I was going to have to continually repeat the process so it would be completely clean to where there is almost no evidence or trace of it being used. Most of us have only scratched the surface of what had happened in our life. Though we came out of the fire, we made it through the storm and rain we are now only surviving because that’s what we have been taught. We didn’t deal with the damaged it caused or the residue it left behind. So when the next storms come we go into survival mode, but what it left begins to pile up and now we are trying to recover from all. Had we only done the proper maintenance after each storm.  #CLEANTHISHOUSE

Introduction to Clean This House

Break Every Chain by Tasha Cobbs
Clean This House by Isaac Carree

I was going through the process of transition as I was exiting one season of life and entering into another one.”Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it. I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert” Isaiah 43:19 God began to deal with me and take me through a healing and a cleansing process. As I was going through this transition in my life He began to reveal them to me as if in parables. As it is in the natural so it is in the spirit. He uses natural methods of cleaning our physical house to cleaning our spiritual house.Through this was birthed “CLEAN THIS HOUSE”I noticed the more transparent I became and the more I released the more freedom, the more peace that I felt and the chains that once held me captive and kept me in bondage began to break in my life.My prayer is that as we take this journey together that God will give you a new look on life and that you will find the courage to #CLEANTHISHOUSE
