We are knee deep in remodeling AGAIN! I’m beginning to wonder if this process will ever end. We’ve torn apart our master bedroom and everything is out in the garage. I have to admit – going out to the garage to find what I am going to wear is totally not my style and way of doing things.
However, I’ve noticed a few things while everything is disarray in the garage.
1. There is so much that needs to GO. If we haven’t worn it or used in months it’s time to let someboby else enjoy it.
2. Many things need our attention — to be cleaned, dusted, mended, or shined.
3. Amid all the clutter, it really is hard to see the special things we have.
4. And our bedroom – while empty – seems simply peaceful, and free.
Relating this to my spiritual life – I see the same benefits to cleaning “house” — my inward self “God’s house.”
It is gut-wrenching to take time out of our busy lives and haul everything out of our inward self to take a good look at it, but once we do we realize there are things that need to go and things that need attention. While all those things clutter our hearts, it is hard to count our blessings. But yet, once we take the time to clear our spiritual house we soon feel God’s peace and freedom!
Is it time for you to do some remodeling? If so, come join me on this freeing journey.
