Several Days ago I knew that Jesus clearly asked me to SIMPLIFY things in my life. I often say that I have a knack for doing the opposite of that. Sometimes I laugh & say, “Why do anything the easy way when I can make it more complicated!” Honestly, I’m pretty good at creating several steps out of one tiny job.
Then, on New Year’s morning God spoke through Genesis chapters 1 & 2. Everything that God created had ORDER, PURPOSE and BEAUTY.
So, this is my plan…
ORDER – Each week clean/organize two small spaces, like a drawer, section of a closet, corner of the basement, etc (I already started this. Two shelves in a small cupboard are cleaned out & decluttered. It took about 10 minutes & it feels so wonderful!)
PURPOSE – When rearranging & weeding out, I will keep only things that serve a purpose in our lives.
This must apply to the choices I make with my time and priorities.
BEAUTY- Carefully add at least one thing a month to our decor that adds beauty, starting with the items that are lurking around in boxes & storage spaces. I’ll use what we already have; repurpose it. Or dig out a project I’ve already started; complete it.
Simple things. But they’re gunna make a big difference.
