Cleaning out Clogged Drains

In early November, I noticed our garage gutters were clogged and not draining properly. I got a ladder, and pulled the bulk of the leaves out in one swipe. Immediately a gush of water plummeted down the pipe. It continued to drain for a while. Today, I thought what in me is clogged up, that is preventing the joy of the Spirit from flowing freely? Is it judgment, unforgiveness, pride, fear, expectations? God, whatever is blocking me from a more joyful life in my vocation, ministry, relationships, set me free. Clean out of me the leaves of competition, comparing, resentment and let the light and sunshine of the Spirit flow freely through. Letting the love of life, God and others flow ever greater is a gift worth seeking during this season of Thanksgiving. I’m grateful for God speaking to me through an act of service.
