It seemd like last week every top or t-shirt I put on had a stain or spot on it. A couple of the t-shirts didn't matter to me; they are getting older. But I have a couple of summer favorites that each had a new spot on the front of it. One had been too close to another item; some color had bled on to it. Now what?
Yesterday when I started to wash, I worked to get the spots eliminated. Get the spot remover; rub it in. Put extra soap in the washer load. Will they be returned to their former state?
I wasn't sure, but I had done what I could. Two had the spots removed. Two had some stains remaining; one I am giving away and another I am 'lowering' to everyday wear. Not as good as they once were.
Sort of like our lives. If we live long enough, we attract some spots and stains. Try as we might, we can't get them cleaned up. We can't do it!
But God can!! We have to bring our spotted and stained lives to Him and He will do the removing. We will be returned to our restored state of cleanliness; we can sparkle and shine. Praise God; praise Jesus!!
"Just As I Am"
"Just as I am, and waiting not
To rid my soul of one dark blot,
To Thee whose blood can cleanse each spot,
O Lamb of God, I come! I come!!
