Clean Your House – I’m Just Saying

by admin on December 24, 2010

One day I began watching this show titled “Clean House.” It is a show where someone comes to help families with major clutter in their homes. These homes did not start out with clutter. It happened overtime. It was amazing to hear the excuses and see the finger pointing. No one wanted to take responsibility for their part in the clutter. The clutter was a result of what was truly going on inside of them. Much like these families, I had clutter in my home. The only difference with my clutter is that I was able to hide mine or at least I thought. Just like those families, I held on to things that reminded me of the past — good and bad. The clutter affected how I felt, what I did, and how I interacted with others. However, it did not compel me to let it go.

 One day, I was looking for something of importance and could not find it. It was at that point, I realized I need to do some deep cleaning. Now my clutter was not visible to those who came to visit. You know how we do — the junk draw, the storage room, the garage, an empty room, or the closet. You know — all the places we don’t allow guests to see. However, my clutter showed itself in others ways (i.e. emotions.) It was time for me to de-clutter and let go of “things” that I was holding on too. I knew that was not going to be easy. Getting rid of the clutter meant I had to deal with what those “things” meant to me.

What clutter are you hiding in your house that you think nobody sees? What are you holding on to both physically and emotionally? As I began to de-clutter I experienced some pain, joy, hurt, disappointment and excitement. Things that I was holding onto were holding me back in so many ways. As I move into the New Year, I am NOT taking any clutter with me. I greet it with excitement, zeal and a clean house — both physically and emotionally. It’s time to say goodbye to your clutter (old papers, un-forgiveness, hurt, pain, clothes, etc.) Prepare to step into 2011 with vigor, excitement and a clean house. It’s time to clean your house!

I’m just saying!

Love you to life,

“Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking.” Romans 12:2a (Msg)
