Perhaps it was paint fumes or the thrill of watching the paint dry, my mind began to wander. Looking over the past 40 years of my life, I couldn’t count the numerous times my life was covered in stains, dust and plain old dirt and grime. The choices I made caused my mind, heart and soul to become muddy.
With every stroke of my paintbrush, a fresh new life to the room was created. Just like the new coat of paint, Jesus has cleansed my life. Forgiveness clears away any muddy residue. Like after a few years, the fresh new coat of paint dulls and needs a new fresher look. My life is just the same. I must continue to ask for forgiveness and repent from my sins.
There is nothing like a nice clean room with a fresh coat of paint. Likewise, there is no feeling like being forgiven and freshly cleansed from repentence.
I’m sure it was the paint fumes!!
