The dust is flying at our house. It seems to stay covered in it. In a constant state. The joys of reconstruction. We have to mop and dust every day.
Sheetrock, drywall, woodwork going up, bricks or tile coming down, it makes dust.
Some of the laborers working in it wear masks. Most don’t. We try not to breathe it if we can help it. By staying behind closed doors when they are working. But it still seeps in, onto every surface.
Dust is defined as fine dry powder consisting of tiny particles of earth or waste matter lying on surfaces.
Do you have any waste matter seeping into your life that would be best to keep out? I’m speaking figuratively here. Sin.
My advice to you is to close those doors! Don’t let it in!
We all need to dust and mop every day! Spiritually that is! Keep our lives clean of waste matter that weighs us down. Keeps us from breathing in the purity of Christ to its fullest!
It is true, we all come from dust. Our origin. Adam was created from the dust of the ground. Adamah (earth). God breathed into his nostrils the breath of life.
And to dust we all will return. Our human bodies are mortal.
Let’s all allow God to breathe life into us. Fresh each day. And leave the dust. The waste matter. For the dustbusters to remove until we are no more. Then we can be dust. For our spirits will soar.
All go to the same place, all come from dust, and to dust all return. Ecclesiastes 3:20
