Clear Out the Clutter

I admire some aspects of the minimalists. Most have a clean, sometimes sparse home. They tend to live life simply. The few I know have a small amount of furniture, with very little art on the walls.

On the other side of this as a group, sometimes called, “hoarders.” A hoarder is someone who hoards things. Some collect and keep things, even things that may seem useless or of little value. These things tend to clutter the living spaces and might limit them from using the space or area as intended.

Hoarders tend to have a lot of anxiety. They are overwhelmed at times, when they look at all the clutter closing in on them.

In addition to being cluttered in your home, your mind can be cluttered. Worry clutters your mind. Doubt distorts your view on what’s right or what’s wrong. When your thoughts dwell on the negative, you’ll soon find your mind cluttered with doubt, worry and anxiety.

Try focusing your thoughts on what’s good in your life. Clear out the clutter.

Philippians 4: 6-7 – “do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
