In theory, spider webs are pretty easy to remove. All you need is a broom or a vacuum cleaner with a hose attachment. Once you're armed with one of these cleaning tools, just remove the spider web. That's all there is to it.
Of course, sometimes figuring out how to remove spider webs can be a little tricky. For example, you could run into trouble if you're trying to clean the web off of a popcorn ceiling. Spider silk is both durable and adhesive, making it difficult to extract from the uneven surface of these ceiling types. In this situation, you can wrap duct tape — sticky side facing out — around a paint roller to remove the web. And that's about as challenging as it gets when it comes to spider web removal. If using a broom, it's better to gently lift the web off rather than trying to sweep it off.
The spiders that I am dealing with build webs outside my door between the railings and in the corners with the siding meets. Others are outside under the windows, wherever there are cracks and crevices to sustain their webs. Well, I have a window in my kitchen over my sink. I have been observing this relatively large spider. It spun a rather large web on my outside window screen. I notice though; it had what appears to be a cocoon that it hovered over. I don't know if that was its egg sack.
I watched Charlotte's Webb a lot as a child and read it to my students, but I could not remember what a spider's egg sack looked like.
Yesterday afternoon, I decided to try to get rid up it all together, it was annoying me. I took my kitchen sink water sprayer, turned the hot water on and began to
Spray the water and dismantle the web and kill the spider. I let the hose run for at least 4 or 5 minutes. It looked as if the spider web was floating in the air like a parachute. It had detached from the window, but something was still holding it fast to the window. When I looked for the spider, it had climbed to height, so that much of the water did not harm it. I looked way up, and it clung to the frame of the window.
This morning when I got up, I looked for it, but it was gone. But there is this one unusual thing about spiders. You can think that you have seen the end of them. But they tend to return to the same spot and spin another web in the same place! They are persistent and resilient. They don't take no for an answer.
I began to think, why do we as Christians give up so quickly? Why don't we have the tenacity of the spider? When things in life try to disrupt us, blow us away, tear down our security and hurt our physical body, why do we give up and allow the enemy to win! We as a people must learn to stay focused. We must learn to stay connected to the things of God that help us to overcome all the obstacles in our life. We must be able to stick with a mission, project, and ministry that God has entrusted to us. We must work diligently toward that goal, purpose or assignment is completed.
God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind. The Lord has given us Grace to Win. God intends for us not to just survive, but to thrive in an atmosphere that is antithetical to your existence. We are not just conquerors, but more than conquerors in Christ Jesus.
When that water hose hit that spider, he immediately crawled out of its web and headed to higher ground!! That is a word right there. When the enemy tries to knock you down, tear you apart, unleash the armies of hell against you; don't give up, don't fall into the trap of saying, "Woe is me, why has this happened to me?" You must look up, you must get up, and you must climb up to a higher place so that you can look down upon the situation to get a greater perspective of how to handle such circumstances. That spider stayed up on the ledge until I stopped firing that water at the web and it. I am sure it is waiting for the "All Clear," and then it will be back. Lol.
There are those of you out there, who have been building your ministry or business in a corner. You feel isolated because people usually like to be front and center when they are showing off their gifts. They love to be the object of people's affections. They love center stage with all the lights shining on their success. But let me tell you something, it is the individuals who have been on the back side of the mountain that God is raising up in these last days. There are those of who have been in a corner persistently and consistently performing your work, taking care of people, working in the ministry that God has given you. You have been faithful to your calling and have paid your vows unto the Lord.
God sees your labor of love, and he will recognize, remember, reward, and make the devil pay you back with interest. If you are one of the ones that have been working in a vacuum, working in a corner, diligently serving without a title, support, accolades, finances, make some noise out there today.
People may come and try to knock you down, disparage your ministry and your gift, but do not get discouraged. Get right back up and build again. You must do like that spider I spoke of earlier. Go up to the high places. Look to the hills from whence cometh your help, and know that God is with you. We are seated in Heavenly Places with Christ Jesus, which means that we are in a high position! When you are up there, you can see much clearer. I suggest that you allow The Lord to give you the plan and purpose He has specifically designed for your life. Get up and build it, develop it. Write the vision, create a web of ideas for your business or ministry and place it in plain view.
Get Spinning, and God Bless You. And:
Don't forget to say your prayers.
