Time to clean house


Spring is in full swing, love is in the air and you’re…still single. It’s ok; this should be considered a special time where you can do whatever it is God has purposed for you to do without interruption or restriction. For those who desperately desire a man at this time in their life, feeling content in the single zone is hardly considered “a special time”. Don’t worry, I feel ya.

Consider this… if God were to send you the man of your dream today would you be ready? Is your house clean enough to have a guest over? I’m not just talking about aesthetically clean (that is important too) but have you cleared your spiritual house of emotional clutter? Does an ex still have his stuff in your house? Do you have delinquent bill mail pilled to the hilt in a corner somewhere? How about bitterness, un-forgiveness and lust, are they occupying rooms in your house? If so, IT’S TIME TO CLEAN HOUSE!

To help you get prepared to have the capacity to embrace your new life, here are a few house cleaning tips:

  1. Clean your physical house!

  • From top to bottom, hit the corners, every nook and cranny. Make sure you clean your windows. You will be surprised at how therapeutic this activity can be.

  1. Get your body right

  • Detox! Do a all natural body cleanse.

  • Work out.

  • Eat right, change your diet if you need to.

  1. Remove clutter!

  • No hard working, educated, successful, fine got-it-going-on man wants to look around your place and see laundry, boxes and stacks of papers. Nor does he want to have to “excuse the mess” as he climbs over boxes and junk to go use the restroom. This is a bad sign of confusion and negligence. Author Carol M. Olmstead says this about clutter, “

  • Get a new wardrobe. Discard clothes you don’t wear and can’t fit. This also makes room for new.

  1. Clear your name

  • Financially: Are you buried in debt? If so, you don’t have a good name. Responsible men care about who they give their last name to. If you expect a man to attach you to his legacy, you should have the kind of character that would not want him to connect to a sinking ship of debt. Although some of the most responsible people in the world experience temporary setbacks, the key word should be “temporary”. Take that stack of bills you’ve been avoiding and go through them. Call up the debtors and make arrangements. It’s really that simple. If you can’t clear it all at once, do it little by little. Most men can deal with you trying to resolve credit issues. However, they will run like the dickens if they find out that on the outside you’re an et while inwardly you’re a liability (especially, if he is wealthy).

  • Personally: Do you need a cleaning in the attitude department? Do you have a bad reputation? Ask yourself, family and friends, am I actually a nice person to be around? If you find you have work to do in this area allow God to reveal to you what needs to be restructured then implement it. This is a must! In order for love to reside in your life you must it!

“Neither do men put new wine into old bottles: else the bottles break, and the wine runneth out, and the bottles perish: but they put new wine into new bottles, and both are preserved.”~Matthew 9:17

  1. Let go of the past

  • If that man left you or you know he’s not good for you let him go! Not just in your head but in your spirit. “They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us: but , that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.”~ John 2:19 THIS IS IMPORTANT! Break those soul ties and get those hindering spirit out of your house. You cannot have 2 husbands at the same time, someone has to go! So make room for the new!

Once your house is clean, keep it that way! Then GET OUT OF THE HOUSE! Get a life, get busy and get involved in a worthy cause! There’s a whole world out there waiting for your gifts and talents. Now’s the time to be Single on Purpose! My sisters, God is not trying to deprive you, he’s ready to bless you. Believe this. Believe it so much that you MAKE THE DECISION to get your house in order because your guest might arrive sooner than you think! ~Jordi Bostock, author of Single on Purpose
