|A small portion of the stuff we took to the thrift store.|
It's often hard to let go of things in our lives, even when all they are doing is taking up valuable space that could be filled with something else or perhaps even left empty in order to allow for something new to come into our lives. During the Advent season maybe we hope to meet God in some special new way, but I have to ask...have you created some space in your life in order to make room for God to show up in a special manner? We need to de-clutter our minds and our hearts in order to create some breathing room for ourselves. What do you need to purge from your live in order to create new space for God to breath something fresh into your heart? Is it letting go of a past hurt? Is it simply allowing yourself the chance to sit and breath for a few minutes without thinking about the next 10 things on your list? Is it saying no to something important and worthwhile so that you can be freed from the frenzy and pace that surround you? Think of one thing today that you could let go of, be freed of, in order to open up some space in your life for God to fill you with something new.
