Clutter and Grace…

It’s hard to believe that we’re already in February! Most of the month of January was spent planning for the year ahead, decluttering, and getting things organized. I love to see the progress that comes with decluttering. First, it’s the mess, then the organized chaos of donation piles, trash, and items that are being kept. Followed by a squeaky clean room and lots of stuff to relocate.

I know that this sounds incredibly odd but I LOVE being able to get trash or donation piles out of the house. It gives me a sort of excitement and motivation to keep going. We still have a LOT of reorganizing to do this year but we made a huge dent in the attic…

As I keep thinking about all that we accomplished in just a few short days, I can’t help but see the resemblance to my own life.

As I’ve mentioned before 2020 brought a lot of heart issues to light. Things that I had stuffed down and tried my hardest to ignore and deny. In some ways, it felt like the light was turned on in the attic of my heart unveiling the immense amount of clutter. Things that I have been holding on (or clinging) to for years. Past mistakes, words that others said to me that I’ve let define me, and the opinions of others.

This process is not easy by a long shot, but it’s one I am thankful for. I’m thankful that the light was turned on in the first place. Because without that light I wouldn’t have been able to see the need for change. And most importantly, I’m thankful for God’s grace. As someone so eloquently stated “God’s Riches At Christ’s Expense”. I’m thankful that He’s giving me the desire to make the desperately needed changes, and the time and resoures to make that change.

So, here’s to a year of decluttering Spiritually and physically!

“Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead”
Philippians 3:13

Until next time,

  1. Clearing the clutter is always a great way to start a new year, new month, new week, or new day!! Taking the time to decide what belongs in each season of life creates space for new opportunities and adventures. Good for you, Bailey!
