As I entered into 2016 the words that resonated in my mind and heart were unclutter and organization. I have been praying to God to give me physical strength to get rid of many things I have stored away for a long time. I literally need to open boxes I have had closed for a long time. It just seems I need days to do it all and maybe another pair of hands.
As this has been tugging at me, I sensed the Holy Spirit saying, “Just as you have stuff to get rid of, you also have thoughts that have been weighing you down. Unclutter your thoughts and feelings of unworthiness, insecurities, what if’s and fears”. Bam! I understand this is why maybe the boxes have not been opened for not wanting to face what is inside and dealing with what to do with the “stuff”.
I want to let go of all that is tugging at me and as I fast and seek God all I want is His peace and comfort. I want more of Him and less of me. I feel a sense of accomplishment as I go about uncluttering my home. I am realizing that what I do in the physical has an impact in the Spiritual.
I want to honor God and I know that by seeking Him more and more, my thoughts are becoming transformed with His Presence. As I listen to His Word and less to what the media is constantly bombarding of “what my needs are”, the more peace I feel. “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” Romans 12:2
Join me this 2016 to seek more of God, listen to His voice, His sweet whisper. Let the presence of Jesus fill you. Jesus is the perfect role model to follow. Allow the Holy Spirit into your life. He comforts and empowers you with His gifts. “… the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.”
In Christ’s love,
