The Heaviness of Clutter

Clutter is heavy.  It weights us down physically and emotionally.  It seems inescapable.
However, that is a lie meant to destroy and keep us from moving on in our lives.


So, do we have to live this way?
Do we need everything that is weighting us down and making our lives heavy 
and our souls frustrated?

No.

We can find a better way.
The first is to trust in God to help us see exactly what to keep and not to keep.
You are not sure.  Ask Him.  It all belongs to Him anyway.

Next, trust that He will answer you in your heart.  Listen for His voice.
What does He whisper to you?

Does He tell you to trust Him even in this mess -- the mess of your heart and your home?
Does He tell you, I love you?
He does.  He really does.
He would not have sent
 His only son Jesus to die for your sins
 if  He did not love you.

So, you can ask Him to help you with this, and not feel guilty about it.
 He cares about this burden you carry, and he wants you to have peace in your heart.

  1. I am so thankful for you and your posts. I don't seem to be able to make it over here often, and it occurred to me tonight that I could just subscribe by email to make sure I don't miss any! Don't know why in the world I didn't do that before...but, anyhow, just wanted to say hi, and I hope all is well with you.
