Removing The Dingleberries Of Life

My mom has a little shih tzu, named Lucy, that’s rotten clean to the core! Lucy has clothes hanging in the closet. Lucy has a toy box. Lucy doesn’t go outside to potty. Mom leaves the tv on for Lucy while she’s at work. Mom also wipes Lucy’s butt with baby wipes! I kid you not! Mom says, “lay down Lucy and let momma wipe your butt.” And the dog jumps on the bed, lays on her back ready for the wiping! It’s the funniest thing I’ve ever seen.

Mom says if she doesn’t do that Lucy will get dingleberries. The truth is, that’s highly doubtful, the poor dog thinks poo is a snack! If mom doesn’t change the pad quickly, after she goes, Lucy gobbles up one of her ‘good jobs’ for a snack! . I guess precious Lucy is too good to clean her own butt, like real canines.

If you think about it, that’s how our Heavenly Father is with us. Sometimes we get ourselves in ‘poo’, and He wipes us clean. No matter how messy we get, the minute we ask, He’s ready and willing to cleanse us of all our sin, commonly referred to as the dingleberries of life. Ok, maybe that’s not such a common saying, but I just coined a phrase!

I’m thankful that we serve a true and living God, who is the God of second chances! I’m thankful He allows us do-overs. I’m thankful that like Lucy, because of Christ, we too have clothes hanging in our closets, and that we don’t have to go outside to potty. And I’m thankful that he wipes away our dingleberries of life.

Repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord; Acts 3:19
