I never thought I’d be sharing something so personal as my shower floor. But here it is in all it’s sparkling glory. It hasn’t always been like this. The last time was shortly after we moved into our house about four years ago. My mother-in-law had cleaned it and it looked great, but over time soap scum and water residue had turned it into a lovely brownish gray. I tried everything to get it clean. Vinegar, Comet, Tilex, Method shower cleaner but no matter how hard I scrubbed it still looked awful.
A few weeks ago, I was reading on Pinterest (love it!) about a simple solution that would clean it without any scrubbing. I doubted it could be true and so easy, but thought to give it a try. So I mixed:
1 part warm vinegar
1 part blue Dawn dish soap
in a spray bottle and sprayed my entire shower. I let it soak and then it just washed away clean.
Such as simple solution but I wish I had found it sooner. The same was true in my life. For many years I felt the yuckiness of my heart. It was always there but I didn’t really know what to do about it, even though I grew up in church, went to Bible school etc. I wondered how a person could be effective if they couldn’t figure out how to scrub the dirt away.
Over years of searching…finally breakthrough. A friend helped me show my heart to Jesus so he could wash it clean. It was so simple and I didn’t have to do anything except be transparent with Him. There is truly a cleaner that cleans and a healer that heals. Jesus is the best cleaning product for the human heart.
So I can’t resist adding a song here…Healing is in your hands…have a listen if you have some time. (Sorry about the quality)
