Casting all your cares [all your anxieties, all your worries, and all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares about you [with deepest affection, and watches over you very carefully]. 1 Peter 5:7 Amplified Bible (AMP)
Are you overwhelmed? Has life’s pressure overtaken your thoughts? Are you overly consumed by your finances, family situation, or health? If this is you…It’s time to DE-CLUTTER!!
Have you ever had a garage that’s become packed with “things”? What about your closet? Do you have clothes you KNOW you will never wear again—too small or maybe style has changed? Not that they are bad things but things you need to get rid of because you’ve accumulated “un-necessary stuff (unessential, don’t need it)?”
When things are cluttered there’s confusion, disorder, chaos, A MESS!!! God wants us to be free from “stuff”!!!! He invites us to give him our worries of money, relationships, and health. DE-CLUTTER—get rid of it!! If you are being consumed with anger, hurt, or bitterness…DE-CLUTTER—get rid of it!!! Take all your worries and concerns to Him for he cares for you. Sometimes you need to re-arrange some things again
Even Jesus had to de-clutter. In Matthew 26, there was a whole lot going on in his life at that time:
Number One: At that very moment the chief priests and other Jewish officials were meeting to discuss ways of capturing Jesus quietly and killing him.
Number Two: Jesus knew that one of his disciples would betray him and then had to eat with him
Number Three: Jesus was told by Peter he would never betray him and guess what, he did!
Jesus had a lot going on. But He knew to get his mind decluttered, he had to get away from everybody (the disciples) and spend time talking to his Daddy.
So today, DE-CLUTTER!! Get rid of unnecessary
