Checking The cluttered Closet

After years have passed, I now try to remember
what it took for to last so long
This made me want to search my closet again
to check to see, what I'm doing wrong
I began to examine, every nook and corner
from the bottom to the top
First to see if any cob webs were hanging there
that would cause my growth to stop
Did I add any shoes, that I did not need
Did I try to wear, another one's hat
What was wrong with the one's I already had
and why couldn't I live with that
Then soon my hearts closet began to crowd up
with things I once rid of
and began to take up that place in God
trying to smother out his love
Then it came to me, it's clean up time
Get the trash bag and then start to work
First get a hold of those shoes, and dump them
that treaded on places where evil lurks
You can get caught up with things, oh so fast
and it comes a time to throw it out
Go and burn it quickly, without hesitation
then let God direct your route
Those coats you had, with pocketed memories
now you again, must let them go
For they are only weights to load you down
and will only dampen, the spirits flow
When the Lord first came into your heart
He swept it clean for you
Which lightened every area that was dark
and made that space brand new
He gave you a heart full of forgiveness
by putting his love in there
Which moved out hate, strife and malice
then the closet became under his care
Those many pains that held you strong
The boxed up anger you had within
But when you chose to give it all to him
He brought them, to an end
Now O' closet I'm here, again once more
for my God will need the room
And he just won't accept, a little space
so let me go and get my broom
For I'm fully aware of what's creeping in
trying to steal my peace in God
By letting in junk, to clutter up the heart
just to bind me up inside
But to the trash bin, you must go
Bags filled, with every, un-healthy deed
and I feel renewed, in my soul
because, the word of God my heart did heed

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
