In the midst of our remodeling, it hit me...
The dust that settled over our entire house (have a definite hatred of drywall dust now) has become a part of my life.
A friend of mine warned me that this dust will be around forever, just when we think we have gotten rid of it, we'll find more. She's right... it hangs out on everything. We've scrubbed and scrubbed.
Just when I think it might be gone, I get dressed to go out... to work, to church, whatever... and then there will be a big white streak across whatever I've worn.
Just as sin creeps into every corner of our life. Just as when we think WE have it under control, we look down and see it's ugly stripes across our soul, our life.
WE can't control it, WE can't "fix" it. WE have to trust and turn it over to HIM.
