The Poop Scooper

We have two dogs. The Stinky Dog, and the naughty dog. They both go outside in a dog run to poop, and if we don't get it scooped up every day; it can get pretty stinky.
This morning, I got to visit with several ladies and our conversation reminded me of the value of having a poop scooper. I can get a lot of stink in my life sometimes, it's called sin. And, God is like a poop scooper, He scoops it out of my life everyday.  I know it's a stinky analogy, and we laughed about it this morning, but it was very fitting for our conversation and so true for life. But so often, I don't want to look at sin for how much poop there is and how stinky it gets. I need God, the Poop Scooper. He calls it what it is, and He takes it.
I know that everyone has issues. I know I do. Some people like to pretend that they don't, and others point fingers. I've been in both places. Either way, it's an issue. I know that God scoops me up either way and loves me for Who I am, not for what I do or don't do. He cleans the stinks off and washes me anew. He brings a freshness and a beauty to my heart that gives me hope.
Jesus, Say That Again, You are the Poop Scooper, You clean me up every day and I live IN You. It's a good thing.
