Peace and love y’all!
I’m so excited to write about my favorite time of the year…SPRING!
Flowers are blooming, leaves are growing and dancing, rain showers are here and it’s getting warmer. Well, at least on some days. This sister is still wearing winter coats here and there.
Before I knew I was a Hebrew Yisraelite, this time of the year mattered to me in a natural sense. Why? Because it just felt new. Come on, bright colors and beautiful flowers return. I love flowers and nature so much, thus I love to watch the plants & flowers bloom to be beautiful and become their purpose. There’s much symbolism there. Such as obedience, joy, order, and peace. (But that’s another blog post!)
What I do enjoy about spring or the arrival of it is….
Yesterday I can home from work early and decided that I can start cleaning out my closets and dressers. I let go of clothes, shoes, papers I thought took space and no longer needed. Then the thought was placed in my mind that spring cleaning is so deeper than searching my closet!
Spring cleaning has a lot of symbolism in it for me in a spiritual sense that I’d like to share.
Cleaning out my things is symbolic to purging my life, like a detox. Today, I went through my clothes and belongings to see what I use or don’t use, what’s taking up space and what’s useful. It helps declutter and just bring about a renewed peace. Letting go is apart of the process, and depending on your will, that can be the hardest part of the process. But we’ve got to clean up!
Being a Hebrew Yisraelite, I recognize that the Feast of the Most High Yah, Passover is approaching. Spiritually, it is a time of self-reflection to see if there be leaven/sin (yeast) in my heart. And when sin is acknowledged, the purging begins. This is similar to throwing things out, The Most High takes an active part in His people’s lives by showing them their sins.
“Search me, O Ěl, and know my heart; Try me, and know my thoughts; And see if an idolatrous way is in me, And lead me in the way everlasting.” Psalms 139:23-24
In becoming a better woman, I want to let go of so much that binds me to the old girl I used to be. It takes more than writing this blog. Just as cleaning out a room can take up time (depending on the clutter) purging takes action/work.
I’m so grateful for spring! I’m so grateful for this new year!
If you desire to become a better woman, while you search your closets, search your heart for any negativity you’ve been harboring. My hope is that you let it go and gain positivity .
