Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
I have only partially defrosted my fridge twice in my rental apartment since moving in eight years ago. Ice keeps growing in the attached freezer day after day resulting in less and less room for me to store frozen food. The good thing that has happened is that now I eat more fresh and healthy food. My iced-up freezer prevents me from buying ice-cream or frozen pizza as there is just has no room for that.
Every time I look at my freezer, it reminds me of my sins and the sins that we have been struggling with. Rather than worrying, complaining, stealing (even taking a paperclip from workplace), lying, cheating, getting addicted to different forms of substances, or lusting. If I do not do anything about it, sins keep piling it up as the ice keeps growing thicker in the freezer. I cannot live my life with such burdens. It is good for me to go to God and ask Him to unshackle these struggles for me and be filled with His Holy Spirit and righteousness. No more will I feel worry or guilt, because Christ will forgive and set me free from these bondages. Hopefully, one day I will learn to live a life without sins. Wait a minutes! Does it mean I need to defrost my freezer? No...God helps me please!
1 John 1:8-9
If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
