Last week while on Staycation at home, I was pressure washing our fence. Amy looked under our back deck and asked if I could get rid of the two faded, algae covered doghouses that were left from a couple of previous pets.
I pulled the smaller one out. It is a two piece "normal doghouse" style house like you have seen at stores. I used the pressure washer and was amazed at how clean it got.
I then pulled out the bigger, heavier Doggloo type house. It is about the biggest doghouse I have ever seen of this type and it was nasty-dirty. It was literally green, brown and black.
I began to pressure wash it and was blown away that it was actually white beneath all of the filth. It then became a fascination with me to see how clean I could get it. It took about 45 minutes but it looks brand new. When I finished the doghouses and went back to the fence I noticed I had really small white flakes on my legs. It was pieces of fiberglass that the pressure washer had blown off of the doggloo while giving it a deep cleaning.
Our lives are like that. We carry around the filth of the world-our sins and failures. They discolor our lives and give us an appearance that we were'nt created to have.
When you give your life to Jesus, He uses His Holy Pressure Washer and removes all of that sin and shame. Sometimes it cuts deep-it has too because of how tight the sin is holding on-but it is neccessary.
Let God get a hold of your life-give your heart and life to him and see what He can do. That will get you "out of the doghouse"
Now if I could just get our two outside dogs into the doghouses!
