Lord, some say that “cleanliness
is next to godliness.”
Yesterday we had the rugs cleaned
in our apartment.
My husband moved all the small things
off the floor onto the furniture
so the man could do the job.
It’s a relief to have dirt removed.
Lord, it reminds of the relief we feel
when we come to you,
confess our sins, and receive forgiveness.
You forgive when we ask, even when
we don’t know what we’re doing..
Thank you, Lord, for your loving mercy. Amen.
1 John 1: 9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
