In nature, spring is a time of rebirth and rejuvenation as we move from the chilly days of winter and into the blossoming of warmer days. For some, that may mean it’s time for deep cleaning, like washing windows, cleaning out the closet or replacing landscaping. For Christians, spring is also a time of renewal, from reflection and self-examination to deeply spiritual spring cleaning.

As you refresh your space at the start of this new season, don’t neglect the space inside of your heart and soul. Maybe your spiritual life just needs a new coat of paint—but whatever it is, spring cleaning can be a time of joy and renewal.

“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.” – Psalm 51:10

Spiritual Spring Cleaning

Like the sun shining through the windows of our houses, the spotlight of the Holy Spirit investigates the corners of our hearts which may have accumulated debris through the winter of our souls. It’s time to discover and clean your spirit; keep the spiritual dust and grime cleared away from the corners of your spirit. Clean hearts lead to better habits, more joy, more forgiveness and a beautiful soul.
