Wash Me

Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow (Psalm 51:7).

The birdbath in the picture sits just outside my office window beneath an oak tree. I watch as different birds bathe in the cool water—or fight throughout the day. (I took this photo last month.) Bluebirds will take turns or bathe together, whereas sparrows fight to go first. The one thing they all have in common is the need to be made clean. And boy, do they enjoy the process! They frolic in and around the edge, dipping, splashing, and flapping.

The psalmist declared, “Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.”

Do you remember the night you came to Christ? Were you happy to be made clean? Do you still have that joy? I imagine in the last 18 months we’ve struggled to remain happy. But joy? We can have joy when everything is going wrong. Because no matter what is going on in this world, we have a Savior, and He has washed us whiter than snow. Think about that for a moment. That truth alone should make us splash and flap about in joy. 🙂

Blessings, dear friends

  1. Beautiful photo and imagery. I do remember the day I gave my heart to Christ and how truly clean I felt, inside and out. Even thinking back to that day fills my heart with joy. Thanks for sharing this.

  2. I do remember when I asked Jesus into my heart when I was about 8.
    Moving forward, I’ve since rededicated my life to Him. I’m still struggling at times but try to focus on prayer and praise to get me through the valleys I’ve been in for several years now.
    Through it all, I can say that I do have joy, which only comes from knowing Him as my personal Saviour.

    • In those times of struggle, when all we can do is focus on prayer, it’s comforting to know Jesus is near. Sandra, please know you’re not alone. I pray your physical struggles will soon be over, dear friend. Praying for health and healing! 💞
