Me, My Hoover, and JesusJan 24
And now for the promised picture you’ve all been waiting for…
…whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31
I just did it last week. Must I do it again? These were the thoughts rattling around in my head last Friday. Friday is my clean day. It is the time I reserve every seven-day-stretch to straighten, scrub, and vacuum. Normally, I strategize my day and approach it with dread. Not this day. I got the idea to use my I-pod while I vacuumed. I strapped on my I-pod, cranked up the praise tunes, and powered up the Hoover wind tunnel.
Listening to tunes about my precious Jesus fueled me. I have never cleaned with such a passion. I vacuumed like no other. The dirt was Satan and the Hoover was my Redeemer. I swept Him over the floors, not missing a spot. And just like that, my carpets were clean. Friends, if you saw a big, ole’ sunbeam shining down on Buford, Georgia last week, it was just Jesus putting a spotlight on my praise show. I did some dancin‘ and some shoutin‘! You won’t believe what happened.
When I got to the last room, I had this funny feeling – like when I’m on the last bite of Grandmother’s homemade chocolate cake with fudge icing. I didn’t want to be done. Suddenly, I understood the verse …whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. I was vacuuming for Jesus. And, friends, it felt good.
