Our 20+ year old dining room floor has become very weak causing concern for sometime now. We finally decided to rip it out and replace it this weekend. We could tell where water had run under from heavy rains over the years compromising the integrity of the wood. Continually allowing moisture to reside near wood will inevitably lead to rot. We had to clear out the room, roll up the linoleum, remove the decking, reinforce the joists and add pillar supports; we then had to replace the decking and roll back the linoleum. It was a lengthy process but each step was necessary. Continually allowing sin to reside in a life will lead to rot. Ok, maybe your body won't rot away but your mental and emotional stability will. We cannot just ignore it and hope it will fix itself, had we done this with our dining room we likely would have fallen through the floor sooner or later. Removing sin from our lives is of high importance "bad company corrupts good character" 1 Corinthians 15:33. It may be a bit of a lengthy process but God will help with each step and He promises to restore you unto himself. "In his kindness God called you to share in his eternal glory by means of Christ Jesus. So after you have suffered a little while, he will restore, support, and strengthen you, and he will place you on a firm foundation." 1 Peter 5:10 NLT
