A few years ago, I heard about a woman who created a business for herself “de-clutterizing” the homes of clients whose clutter quotient had gotten out of control. I could relate. Have YOU ever felt like there was so much stuff stuffed in your house that they might just find you buried in it all if you didn’t do something about it?
According to Karen Kingston, author of “Clear Your Clutter,” the four main categories of clutter are: 1.Things you do not use or love; 2. Things that are untidy or disorganized; 3. Too many things in too small a place; and 4. Anything unfinished. I would add something else to that list – something that has way more of an impact on your happiness and well-being than anything you might find in a junk drawer. I believe there is such a thing as “spiritual clutter.”
Too many of us are carrying around the debris of anger, selfishness, and sins of all kinds. The Good News is that God is the ultimate clutter-buster. God is more than happy to take your junk off your hands – and do it for free. Is it time in your life for some spring cleaning?
