Clothed With Joy

So clean house! Make a clean sweep of malice and pretense, envy and hurtful talk. You’ve had a taste of God. Now, like infants at the breast, drink deep of God’s pure kindness. Then you’ll grow up mature and whole in God. 1 Peter 2:1-3 MSG

In recovery, we refer to Steps 4 and 5 as the housecleaning steps. While the 4th and 5th steps are crucial in a thorough tidying-up, the truth is it’s all 12 Steps that are needed to make life neat, orderly, and fresh. Before we can begin the actual heavy lifting needed in Steps 4 and 5, we must first assemble all of the necessary tools required to build the foundations for our new lives in recovery. It is Steps 1, 2, and 3 that we need in order to prepare ourselves for the big housecleaning.

The first thing to do is admit that we have a dirty house. Some of us come to this understanding right away. We know that our living standards have been subpar, that our homes would have probably been condemned if there were life inspectors. Others have worked tirelessly to keep outside appearances looking great, becoming exhausted in an effort to keep anyone from seeing the mess we have inside.

Steps 2 and 3 are where we realize that we are in way over our heads. In Step 2, we learn we have become accustomed to the insanity of living in filth, and in Step 3, we invite God into our homes to help clean up the mess that permeates our lives. God doesn’t care that we come to Him with dirty houses. He is ready to take us as we are. sweeping and scrubbing. All the old that kept us dirty is thrown away, giving us more room for God. Our new clean home is where Christ resides.

Written by Jackell.

Today’s Prayer

Father God, be with us as we clean our early houses of all the old and useless junk that we’ve accumulated over the years. Help us to let go of what we no longer need so that we can have more of the things you are giving us. Amen.
