Is It Time for Spring Cleaning?
By Beula Postlewait
You will never hear me say that I love to clean the house. I would rather pull weeds in the garden beds, take a walk, or read a good book. However, I love the feeling I have when everything is in its place and the house feels fresh and clean. I do not like clutter, and I hate it when I can’t find something that I need. There are the weekly cleaning times, and then there are those seasonal cleanings when all the hidden places and surfaces are cleaned.
In the Nazarene church where I grew up, we usually had a fall revival and a spring revival. Now, these revivals were not weekly or week-end events. They would be scheduled for two weeks! It was a good time to search your mind and heart for any attitudes or actions that might need some “cleaning” or correction. My church invited some very well-known speakers who would challenge us to be up-to-date in our relationship with God. My church was a lively church with good music and good speakers. You never knew when the Holy Spirit would come upon the service and people would shout and praise the Lord. One man was known to run up and down the aisles. These services made a huge impression on me as a child. Though I was young, I knew that I needed to keep an up-to-date relationship with God. The speakers encouraged us to search our hearts and minds to see if there were any attitudes or actions that would impede that relationship.
So, I am thinking about what I need to put on my list for spring cleaning this year. First, I need to ask myself if it really is spring. On Easter Sunday, April 1, nature played a joke on us in Kansas City by sending us sleet, hail, and snow. I am grateful that this happened in the afternoon, and we were able to have a wonderful worship service that morning. However, it was so cold, that it did not feel like spring. The weatherman says we are in meteorological spring. And eventually it will become warm. So, I need to set aside time to plan for the spring cleaning of my house and yard.
I also need to think about a time to think about my spiritual life. During the winter doldrums, have I allowed myself to harbor attitudes or actions that might keep me from being my best for God? Have I become accustomed to being inside the house and less aware of the needs of people around me? Have I spent more time with electronic devices and less time socializing with people who need someone with whom they can share their needs and burdens? Do I need to shake off the dust of winter and open my heart and mind to the fresh air of spring? Do I need a spring revival?
“Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting,” (Psalm 139: 23-24, NIV).
