Pearl 116: Lighten the Load

TOPIC: Organization and Clutter    

"So they got up and fled in the dusk and abandoned
their tents and their horses and donkeys. They left
the camp as it was and ran for their lives" - 2 Kings 7:7.

The enemies of Israel thought they were in danger, so they fled, leaving behind all their stuff because it weighed them down. Is your stuff weighing you down? Earlier in the month, we used a phrase to help guide how you treat your stuff: When in doubt, throw it out. One study showed that 87% of what you save (articles, paper, reports, files, old clothes, etc.) is never used or referred to again! Has it been a while since you cleaned up your world by discarding what you have not worn, looked at or used in a long time? How soon can you set aside some time to streamline the world of your computer, desk, office, attic, work space or purse?

Lord, I know I have too much stuff and it is weighing me down, not allowing me to be nimble and free. I commit to go through my world room by room, desk by desk, closet by closet, and computer by computer to lighten my load as I go forward and progress in Your will for my life.
