How many times do we 'busy' ourselves with everything else, just to avoid what needs to get done? Oh, every bit of the everything else may be important . . . but not for this moment. Unclutter your 'busy' life by uncluttering your 'busy' mind and heart. No, that does not mean too 'blank out' everything; but to begin cleaning out stuff that has occupied to much space in your mind, your heart.
Where can you start? Oh allow me - Unforgiveness takes up a large portion. It partners with bitterness and can cause more serious implications in your life. Do you suffer with high blood pressure? Hmmm. Could be that unforgiveness. It has a way of causing so many issues for us. The really sad part about it is that it is only hurting you. The person, place or thing that you hold in contempt has probably moved on. You are being controlled.
How do you get started? Take that issue, write down what it has cost you, then lament it. Tell God everything you can about it, as bold as you can. When you are finished, leave it there. I didn't say forgive, I just said leave it. Now rest. When there is no longer any pain, then forgive and move on.
Okay now that is more space in your heart to hear God's direction and then to follow. Too much clutter will cause you to miss your direction. Go ahead, start uncluttering. One step at a time. Let me know how you progress. type to you later.
