Life is like a tight collar.
Do you dislike flossing? I know I do, sometimes. At least when I think about flossing, it's often something I am reluctant to do, because it takes time and is an awkward experience. But once I actually do it, my mouth feels so clean, I feel lighter, my whole day feels better and I feel better about myself. And the more I floss the less it feels like an awkward “have to” experience and the more it feels like an enjoyable cleansing.
I pondered these things as I was flossing the other day and then God revealed something to me. Spending time with the Lord is a lot like flossing. Perhaps you start your day reading his word, praying to Him and listening to Him speak; this is your spiritual flossing. You're allowing Jesus to weed out the junk between your teeth that you have been chewing on, that you shouldn't have, and then He feeds you His own spiritual food.
Do you ever feel reluctant to spend this time with the Lord? Do you find it an awkward revealing experience that shows you just how many dirty things you've been chewing on? I know I definitely feel this way from time to time. This reluctance is rather hurtful since God loves us so much and wants to sanctify us, growing us in the likeness of His dear Son. But when we actually let Him do this, we feel so much lighter, our whole day feels better and we feel better about ourselves. And the more we partake of this spiritual flossing the less it feels like an awkward “have to” experience and the more it feels like an enjoyable cleansing.

I'm a lover of Jesus, and he has called me to love and obey Him. One of the ways He has me do that, is by glorifying Him through media.
