Keep. Toss. Sell. Donate. My brain has been dominated by these four categories for the past few days. Clutter was everywhere, and I reached that point finally. I was done. Over it. Everything must go. I made a giant to do list, sold a bunch of stuff I wasn’t using, and started going through the house room by room. I’m slowly chipping away at the clutter in our house, but what about my spiritual clutter?
Just like our houses get cluttered by material things, our spiritual lives can get cluttered as well. Distractions lure us away from what our focus should be, and our priorities get all out of whack. Sometimes we have to eliminate things that are getting in the way of our relationship with our Heavenly Father.
Worry, stress, fear, anxiety, disappointment, negativity – these are things that go in my toss pile. I throw them into a big black garbage bag, tie a knot, and take them to the curb. The bag starts to rip, and all that spiritual clutter slowly starts to creep back into my life. Thankfully, God doesn’t toss me out. He waits for me to return to Him. He offers second chances time and time again.
Today is a good day for clearing the clutter.
