Spring is a good time to revisit the idea. The season of Lent also reminds us that the things we own will not get us any closer to God. Savvy reminded us Sunday that our focus needs to be on God’s dream for us and the world, more than the “American dream.”
I don’t know about you, but I am feeling called to clear the clutter, so I can connect with the center of my being and with God. If you want to join me, here is a link that can help us to declutter, organize, and live freely and simply so others can simply live! We do not have to start big. We can start with one drawer, one closet or one room- whatever comes easier to you. The joy we feel when we accomplish that one space will motivate is to move to the next step.
Hopefully, this process will also help us with our spiritual decluttering! What do I need to let go of? What do I need to unlearn? Who do I need to forgive? Who do I need to seek forgiveness from? What am I holding on to, that is not life-giving to me? These questions and more can help us with our spiritual decluttering and re-centering.
