Do you ever just feel dirty? Like, maybe you just touched something disgusting and your hands feel just not clean? Or maybe you saw something revolting and you felt that yucky feeling? Have you ever done something, and then afterwards felt bad about it? Like, that guilty feeling inside that says Man, that was wrong. I shouldn't have done that.. Have you ever felt just unclean? Tainted? Impure? Yeah, it's a lot of questions, but there's a very specific feeling that I'm talking about.
I sometimes feel dirty. In life, sometimes I feel this feeling of guilt, regret, and remorse like I just tainted myself. We all have ways of dirtying up our lives. What we let come out of our lives, like our words and actions, and what we let into them, like what we breathe in, look at, eat or drink, or even keep inside of our lives like negative thoughts, these are all ways we can really mess our lives up and leave us feeling disappointed, disgusted, and dirty.
I don't know about you, but I hate this feeling. JB makes a lot of mistakes, but the feeling never goes away. So what do we do? Should we just tune it out? Become numb? No, we need to make an effort to stay away from those things in our lives that leave us feeling that way. Because really, we make God sad when we dirty up the lives He gave us. But don't worry! I'm so glad I know a God of love, and with His loving heart, He can and will make us clean. Let's talk about it.
