Come In


Extending invitations to guests for a house-warming, can be an extremely exciting time. Your home is new, and everything about it brings you great peace. When guests arrive, you begin the tour. Showing off every closet and crevice to invite them to share in your joy. But once the joyful laughter of the house-warming fades and months begin to pass by, things change.

The excitement has faded and now anxiety and loneliness creeps around comfortably. Spider-webs make themselves at home in the confines of the spaces you choose to ignore. And, the very rooms of your home, you once openly invited to guests, become closed off. What has caused such a shift?

Truth is, once you settle into a place old habits return. The very things that were once held at bay, begin to invade your space. And it becomes easier to hide your sins in various rooms of your home, because the house-warming is over. There’s nothing more for you to display. You figure it’s your home, it’s just the way it’s supposed to be.

But, what happens when the home gets more cluttered? When what seemed to be under control becomes too much for you? Where you can’t even open a closet door without sins and shame falling out? Some give up, and leave things as they are. But as for you, you have a better choice.

I know it’s been a while since you’ve let anyone into your home. But today, let me encourage you to ask Jesus to, “come in…”

Scripture(s) Meditation:

“Help me, O LORD my God! Oh, save me according to Your mercy.”

Psalm 109:26 NKJV

“Save me, O God, for the waters have come up to my neck. I sink in the miry depths, where there is no foothold. I have come into the deep waters; the floods engulf me.”

Psalm 69:1-2 NIV

Reflection Question(s): We invite you to discuss below.

What rooms/closets of your “home” have restricted access? Was it always this way? Did something shift, to cause what was once open to now be restricted? What keeps you from allowing Jesus to come visit those spaces? What will cause you to remove the yellow tape and let Him “come in”?

Lol I couldn’t resist commenting especially with the references to home clutter 🗑️❤️😁. Anyways, I used to have my basement closed off for safety and personal reasons. It flooded my first few months moving in, so I wasn’t able to have a housewarming actually. But after spending a bunch of money to rehab and remove the toxic mold, I got extremely sick from the exposure and flooded my finances (what a coincidence 🙃). As a result, I kept the basement closed off even after the mold was removed. It was supposed to be my art studio and the family fun space but the only time I would spend down there was to go out in the backyard to smoke weed,…
