I awoke this morning to the sound of an alarm. The alarm on the septic take is alerting
us to a failure in the tank. It is not a pleasant wake-up call.
A septic failure means no removal of filth. No flushing the potty, no baths, no laundry, no clean dishes. It means toxic back up into our lives.
If the failure is not attended to quickly, then in time diseases which can lead to death are real possibilities.
I begin to think about the septic tank and sin in my life. What if I could not remove it, what if I could not wash daily in the Word, or know that when I gave Him my filth it would be completely removed.
What if my only robe had no hope of having all spots or wrinkles removed.
He has awakened me with an alarm this morning and caused my ear to be attentive to His voice, reminding me to begin each day with Him, confessing our sin and need for His salvation, to wash in the Word, and to robe ourselves in His righteousness, and to learn His ways and share them with others.
