My journey to project clean-up or Mess Madness (as I like to call it) started a few weeks ago. So far so good! But something unexpected is happening in the process.
"Jerusalem, stand up! Shine! Your new day is dawning. The glory of the LORD shines brightly on you." Isaiah 60:1My first project was cleaning up from Avery's party. You can't even imagine the amount of STUFF that had piled up from all the crafts.
I let them.
I let things take over my God space! Hoping I am not alone in this?
All I can say is "whoops" and start NEW! Beating my self up will serve no purpose!
Next came the fun! I re-set the box. Sketch pads, colored pencils, journal, Bible, 2 books I am reading, a cross from a friend, note cards, and my new favorite addition is a photo album I quickly made. It has pictures of families and friends with a page that I can write in my prayers and prayer requests for each of them. I am loving it and it keeps me focused during prayer time. And last but certainly not least BUBBLES (yes, I do blow them in the house if I want :)!
So I have come to realize/recognize that cleaning up my stuff is doing so much more for me than I ever planned! God is super ridiculous cool! It's a new day.
I am curious if you have a special spot for your quiet time? Do you have a routine to your time or it is new each day?
P.S. - Found this really cool resource for helping you simplify if you are looking for some help in this area.
