Well, probably. Will there be a mess in the garage again? There may be. But pick it up while it's small. Get up quickly. You attack the mess when it's small, and you start a new day clean. You start a new year clean. You don't need to acknowledge that mess again; you need to attack it.

And He knew that what was hidden in my dark places would blow up my life and my eternity. So He acted to defuse it with the most extreme act of sacrificial love in history. He absorbed the "blast" Himself so I could board the flight to His heaven and be with Him forever.

Like the song writer said, "All I had to offer Him was brokenness and strife, but He made something beautiful of my life."

Things will not get better until you do. Your problem may not be what it appears to be at all. Maybe that's just the symptom. The problem may be sin that has not been confessed; not repented of; not cleaned up.

See, our grandchildren had gotten to it and they left their artwork there with markers, and pens, and crayons. Well, not long ago, a friend was helping us with some work at the house, and she decided to use this special sponge on those marks. I think it’s called Miracle Erase. Well, we were stunned at the result! It was like we got a new table. My wife said, “I never thought I’d get rid of those.” Snow in the Bible: Psalm 51:7 http://biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalm%2051:7&version=NIV 2009-08-24T16:35:00-05:00 "Whiter than snow"--that's how clean we are when God has "washed" us and removed our sin and shame. The imagery of cleansing is often used to describe the spiritual effect of God's work in our lives: we once were dirtied by our sin, but now are clean.
