It’s a gift we give ourselves really. The gift of letting go of what we do not need in order to give to others. It takes time to sort out piles of items we want to keep or donate. But once the deed is done there’s a shift in our thinking, our being. Some people experience a “lightness, a weight being lifted” that continues to grow. It’s the opposite feeling of a shopping high or a successful hunt for the perfect black dress. By releasing and removing clutter, worn out items, unused shoes or clothing, you are freeing up room in your physical and spiritual home for a prayed for goal or a surprise blessing. Don’t sabotage yourself with second guesses about keeping anything that causes hurt or a distance between you and God or your loved ones. The Bible is against idol worship for good reason. Your Heavenly Father wants you to have healthy, positive, peaceful relationships as much as it is possible. You can’t do that if you are living in a fantasy having unrealistic expectations about items everyone but you are willing to admit will never be used by anyone in your house again.
Thank you to Goodwill and The Salvation Army for accepting donations from furniture to clothing to shoes and even vehicles. I pray in 2020 you make the decision to not let the month of January go by without making donations a part of your New Year’s resolution.
Take care and God Bless!
