Today’s Inspiration Station With Rhonnie Scheuerman
Create in me a new clean heart, O GOD
Filled with clean thoughts and right desires. psalm 51:10
Author: Dianne Neal Matthews My daughter Recently got inspired by the “40 Bags in 40 days De cluttering Challenge,” which encourages people to inspect one area of their home at a time, removing at least one bag of unnecessary stuff from each space. One logger has completed the challenge as well annually since 2011 and claims that it has “changed my life forever,”as well as the lives of thousands of other people.
I’ve only seen the TV show Hoarders twice because I find it hard to watch. In both episodes, forty bags would barely make a dent. It’s hard to understand how anyone to let his or her home get so crammed with junk that it’s difficult to even walk through a room. But once these people get help clearing out their houses, their demeanor and attitude toward life seems transformed.
Clutter can be a problem in an emotional and spiritual sense too. I may allow my life to be filled with harmful habits or destructive relationship. My heart and mind can get crammed with worries, doubt, fear, or immoral thoughts and desires.
Wouldn’t it be great if we could lug bags of jealousy and it’s not that simple, but greed, anger, and the like to the curb to be picked up? Obviously it’s not that simple, but Jesus wants to help us clear the undesirables out of our hearts and minds. We just need to invite Him to show us what has to go and then depend on His power day by day to keep from allowing it back in Jesus challenges us to a de cluttering that is truly life changing.
