CONTROLLING CLUTTER!

Matthew 6:8 – Devotional

Matthew 6:8

“Your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him.”

My wife Joyce was an amazing person. She was always neat and organized. It seemed to be one of her greatest delights in our home to insure that everything was in its proper place … and then there was me! I seem to specialize in clutter.

Over the 62 years of our marriage, Joyce tried everything to control my clutter. The number of boxes, baskets, and cubbies she bought to help keep my clutter out of sight, or at least manageable, was astounding.

During the last years of Joyce’s life, she was not as concerned about clutter. Since her death in 2015 I have been on my own to control the household clutter and have become aware of a new reality about it. Oftentimes I think I’ll need a particular article later, so I “store” it beside my chair, on my desk, on the floor … you get the picture. Before long I have a mess that needs attention. It’s then I discover that most of my clutter was totally unnecessary to hold on to.

There are areas of our lives that may have eternal value, but are they covered up by the clutter we allow to accumulate. When we make the Lord the focus of our life, He alone can bring order out of chaos. He knows what we need and when we will need it!

Blessings dear hearts! Walk with God today and be a blessing.
