Every good housekeeper understands the benefits of keeping a clean house. When one’s house is free of excess clutter, dirt and dust, cobwebs, smudges and stains, garbage and waste, it’s a more pleasant place to be. Thought is free to soar into productive healthy places, rather than worry about how to find a wanted item hidden in the clutter somewhere or allowing the mess to get so out of control one gets discouraged about ever cleaning it up.
The same rule applies to our state of thought. The cleaner thought is of mortal mind clutter and mess, the easier it is to hear God’s voice and pray with success.
To keep moving down a path of progress with ease and delight, keep a clean mental house! Throw out the garbage; any fascination with disease, simmering resentments, low level anger, or high-level rage, unnecessary fear, doubt, despair, fretting, fussing and fuming. Anything that is not coming from God doesn’t belong in your mental home. Welcome angel thoughts of Truth and Love. Kick anything ungodlike out the door.
Just as it’s a delight to walk through a clean home that radiates love and care, it’s a delight to walk through one’s day with a clean mental house. Inspiration is found quicker. God’s presence is clearer. Healing happens faster.
