Clutter in Your Life

Piled high in clutter!

Piled high in clutter!

In the book of 2 Chronicles chapter 34, some pretty amazing events was happening.  Josiah, who became king at the age of eight, came from the the lineage of David.  A lot had changed in the land since King Solomon reigned. Evil and wickedness had come upon the land.  Eight years into his reign, King Josiah began purging his kingdom of all things ungodly.  He had a clean sweep of the idols.  Ten years into this effort, the king decided to make some repairs to the temple.  His men were sorting thru things in the rubble and came across the Book of the Law of the Lord.  They had found the very scrolls of Moses.  What a find!

 If you were to tackle your basement, garage or  off-site storage area, what you find?  Do you even remember what is in there? If you haven’t missed it in a few years, chances are you can do without and purge it.    And how are you honoring what is stuffed in this space? If it is important enough to keep, then you should have it properly stored. You don’t want to discover that it is moldy and not worth anything to anyone.

God wants you to live life to the fullest.  One way is to remove the clutter in your life of things that are hindering you.  People hide behind their stuff and try to convince themselves that it doesn’t bother them rather than face the reality of the situation.

But you never know what you might find; a missing piece of jewelry; your cherished record albums of old;  family photos? Who knows?  Some of what you purge may be trash if it has no life left in it. If it is usable but you no longer use it, bless others with it.  It is a win win situation.  You have more freedom to move about your space and the person blessed has something they can use at an affordable price; perhaps even free. That would be a real find for them!
