You'd think my dogs would know by now that when I get out the vacuum cleaner, I am not going to hurt them. I can't count how many times they've been shown that they are safe...but then again, I'm no better.
When God decides to pull out his vacuum cleaner to clean up the dirty things in my life, I tend to "run to the other room", or cower, or bark (tell him off or yell). I should know by now that when he cleans up my life with his spiritual vacuum, he has my best interest in mind.

The Bible reminds us constantly to trust the Lord. 

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do
 not lean on your own understanding.
Proverbs 3:5

For I know the plans I have for you, 
declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not 
for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Jeremiah 29:11

Blessed is the man who makes the Lord his trust,
 who does not turn to the proud, 
to those who go astray after a lie!
Psalm 40:4

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and 
supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known
 to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses
 all understanding, will guard your hearts and your
 minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:6-7

When I vacuum the house, I am trying to keep us clean, healthy, and in better living conditions. you'd think the poochies would be grateful ;)
God wants us to be grateful too, and to trust him. Good many times has he shown me that I can trust him. Now if I only will, without having to be reminded of his faithfulness....through three silly dogs running away from a vacuum, at that.
