Simple living isn’t just a fad. It’s real. And, it’s growing. And, if it’s in you, you have it for all eternity.
So, on that note, let’s get rid of some stuff!
Yet again I have forged ahead into donation zone. But, now it seems I’m at a deeper level. Now instead of things I don’t like or need, it’s the very items that I’ve been keeping for 20 years that God is getting rid of.
And, I’m letting Him do it. And, it’s refreshing.
My stuff shouldn’t control me. I should control my stuff. So, when He says to get rid of it, I then add it to the pile.
I haven’t missed a thing.
All these beautiful candle holders, lamps, clothes…all things I thought I needed, have now been added to the donation pile.
I’ve also noticed that the more stuff I have, the more time I spend taking care of it.
The less stuff I have, the fewer worries I have to go along with it.
Matthew 6:19 states:
19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. (King James Version)
So, I shall store up for myself treasures in heaven, and let these worldly possessions go. God bless’em!
Thank you, God, for Your clarity, Your judgment, and Your divine love.
In Jesus’ mighty name, Amen!
