Let me give you a glimpse into my weekend, shall I?
Eden was working on a craft project, which was totally fine and normal. She came inside to throw away what she didn’t need, and she missed the trashcan… resulting in red. paint. EVERYWHERE.
Of course she got upset. Of course I was mad in the moment… as most people would be. But you know what? I quickly realized to not cry over red paint.
You see- we all make mistakes. We ALL mess up. NONE of us are perfect. We might FEAR that our mistakes won’t wash out of our lives… but guess what? With the power of Jesus, they certainly do.
Let this red paint represent our sins… splattered where everyone can see. No matter how much we might try and clean it up and hide what we’ve done, we can never truly wash it out…. on our own.
The bible tells us that by confessing our sins to Him, He will COMPLETELY wash them away- and leave us white as snow. How powerful is that? How comforting is it knowing that we ALL make mistakes… but HE forgives us and cleanses us totally.
And for my brick floor? Thankfully, I knew without a shadow of a doubt that this red paint wouldn’t phase it one bit. I have TRIED to tell y’all how easy it is to clean, but I am not sure you believe me!!!
I have a whole post dedicated to how I clean my brick flooring, but I wanted to give this tutorial a moment of glory… because if this doesn’t make you believe that my brick flooring is where it’s at, then I’m not sure what will.
All I used was hot water, a towel, and dawn dish soap.
And look… it’s completely clean. There was literally no trace of the red paint anymore.
Just like when confessing our sins, we are completely clean.
Thank you Jesus for little “God Winks” (as I call them) in life… and for revealing yourself to me in little ways like this.
Moral of the story: God forgives our mistakes, and my brick floor from Old Mill Brick is amazing! If you have any questions or concerns about this flooring… be sure to read my post that tells you EVERYTHING you need to know!
But that black and white rug… not so much. LOL!
