I cleaned out my closet and drawers today.

How in the world did I accumulate so much stuff?
There were seriously things from years ago that I have been holding on to just in case I needed them. When am I gonna wear the nice little Hawaiian dress that I bought at Honolulu Hatties? I found a whole flock of tank tops that had shrunk and were too short for me. Why are they in my drawer? I never wear them. Every time I try to wear them, I quickly take them off because they look like I am trying to wear a 6 year old's shirt. Next I moved onto the sock and underwear drawers. Is there a sock monster that takes just one sock? Enough said.

Drawers and closet are happily completed. I am happy to say that it looks clean and organized. Three garbage bags later! Next I want to tackle the garage!

God always speaks to me through daily life. The lesson that came today is that it is good to get rid of the things that entangle us. Possessions can easily entangle me.

"let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us."

Father, there are many people who only have one shirt and I have many. Teach me to live in this world and yet remember that it is not everything. You alone can fulfill my needs. Fill me with contentment for what you have given me and not to desire more. Lead me into a deeper understanding of this today.

Thank you for all of your provision.
