The ‘Soul Scanner’
I love a good spring clean! I have to admit at being a bit of a clutter-free freak and a cleanaholic!
I love to see my albut empty neat & tidy cupboards. My hubby gets nervous when he sees me on my way to another charity shop carrying a black bin bag in case there’s something in it of his! And every 3 months he has to pull out our bed, sofa, fridge, & everything else so I can check and clean behind them as I am also extremely spider phobic. Some say I have OCD but it’s simply that I derive pleasure from living in uncluttered, clean, and minimalist space. But also knowing that a spider isn’t lurking anywhere just to see me jump out of my skin!
At this time of isolation due to the Coronavirus, it could be a chance to de-clutter and spring-clean your home which got me thinking about the soul, and how it’s also a good idea to inspect our soul from time to time, to check if there’s any clutter that has been lurking there for way too long!
Maybe some ‘rubbish’ has got a little too comfortable there! Maybe there’s a bit of unforgiveness that’s got too well-bedded there! Maybe there’s a spec of resentment, rebellion, selfishness, anger, or even some jealousy that just needs throwing out!
Our soul is as visible to God as our body is to other bodies! “If there is a natural body there is a spiritual body” (1 Corinthians 15:44).
Just as we communicate by mouth, God communicates to the soul. It is the spiritual connection between us and Him, “Give heed and keep your soul diligently” (Deuteronomy 4:9).
Our soul can meet God’s needs as well as Him meeting ours! But if the soul is full of stuff that needs throwing out – we could we be depriving ourselves of hearing that still small voice more clearly and more often.
God bless. Christine.
