The wave of decluttering that has swept, so many people’s homes has not skipped over our house. The picture above was my guestroom and the final frontier after our move over a year ago. I am on a mission, over 6 trunk loads of clutter has left my home since January 1st. My kids expect to make a drop off at Goodwill on errand day. If they haven’t played with a toy in a while, they know it is fair game for purging. I’m finding the drawers and cubbies that have been cleared of the stuff I move and shift to see the things I really use genuinely refreshing. Instant gratification is so satisfying, and completion still seems so far off.

I honestly believe this “trend” is also happening in the spirit. God is calling His kids to release all the mindsets and added doctrine that no longer serves them. The thoughts that don’t produce life, the looping memories that stir up regret and never lead anywhere else.
The Word of God will bring renewal and clearing away. We merely have to choose to bring it in and release what it highlights.

This is indeed the season I find myself in. I’m totally digging my organized knife drawer and simplified sock bin. Even more the clarity and quiet of the picture painted on my heart is like a refreshing breeze laced with the scent of honeysuckle.

Allow the Holy Spirit to enter the stuffed away places and a well-guarded hoard of old memories. He is waiting to bring refreshment!

Ephesians 4:22-23
And he has taught you to let go of the lifestyle of the ancient man, the old self - life, which was corrupted by sinful and deceitful desires that spring from delusions. Now it’s time to be made new by every revelation that’s been given to you.
