Dirty House, Tells Tales

Watching the show Hoarders was blood-curdled disturbing to me. I wanted to put on my rubber gloves, face-mask and have oodles of garbage bags at my disposal. I gaped with disgust and tried to imagine that somewhere beneath all the filth lays hidden potential.

What in tarnation causes people to reach such a secret pathetic state? Its one thing to have a chaotic mess from time to time, but it’s quite another to have settled into one. Not just an average-run-of-the-mill mess—I’m talking biggie.

Weird psychological conclusions baffle me. Squalor syndrome,Diogenes syndrome, Havisham syndrome,Plyushkin syndrom,and who knows what other drome. They live with tons of rubbish, and vermin!

As usual, the Holy Spirit whispered “Imagine what sinners without Jesus looks like.  Imagine the mess of man. Imagine the mess in the world.”

We are all sick from sin. Man can call it any other fancy names, but the truth be told we are all hoarders of bad habits and a sinful nature, and we all need an intervention—Jesus.

Luke 11:25 - And when he cometh, he findeth [it] swept and garnished.


  1. i know exactly what you mean, diane... i knew one some time ago and it was fruitless... so many prayers... i was being judgemental so the prayers i prayed went along with the wind... we must pray for Jesus' intervention, not ours to do... † ೋღ

    1. I know exactly what you mean. It's so quick of me to judge and try to force people to feel shame. Jesus is working over time on me for that!
