Today was junk riddance day.I called a junk man known as a
kabadi wala and sold him all the useless stuff lying around gathering dust and rust.Irreparable things...bits and pieces falling apart.
I also gave away the things someone said they could fix.
The kabadi walas or junk collectors patrol the city streets on the lookout for folks wanting to get rid of their rubbish..
Old newspapers, books , toys , furniture and appliances ,
just anything you don 't need anymore is taken off your hands
usually after a lot of haggling over the price.
The junk man takes the stuff to his junk yard where he disposes it off as scrap etc.
There is another kind of junk which I need to get rid of
and I don 't need a kabadi wala for it.
It is done through prayer, repentance and submitting to God.
Over time I collect junk
like old memories which disturb
They cloud my thinking
making it easier for Satan to shoot
is fiery darts at me (Ephesians 6)
O Lord remove all this junk
from my heart and soul
so that I may live a sanctified life
pleasing to you.
Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice.
Ephesians 4:30-32 NIV (BIBLE)
1 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
Romans 12; 1,2 NIV (BIBLE)
