Decluttering your life...

Visit: for more information!
Recently I was listening to Terri Savelle Foy talking about decluttering our homes and our lives.
I began thinking about how I've "cleaned up" my friends list on Facebook and my followers on Twitter, too. I began to think of how all this makes my life more organized, more empowered, and more encouraged. So why not carry that all into my home and my spiritual life as well?!

She said to make a list of those areas in our homes that need some serious tending to. Next, she said to go into each of those rooms or areas and list all the things we need to do to them to get them fixed up. For example, in the master bedroom you might list clean cobwebs out of the corners, dust the dresser, throw trash away, organize mail (or toss it out!), vacuum the floors, wipe the windows with window cleaner, etc.
 Next, you move into the kitchen and list all those things: load/unload the dishwasher, wipe off counters, sweep and mop the floor, wipe down the stove, clean out the science experiments growing in old bowls of the leftovers in the refrigerator, throw out outdated products sitting in the refrigerator, etc. You get the idea. But you only list the steps to be done...for now! Then you set a date to begin. Terri suggests starting NOW! Set a timer for 20 minutes and clean as much as you can; you'll be surprised at how much you can accomplish!!!

 Then watch happens in your life. You'll notice that as you get your physical house in order, your spiritual house begins to come together as well. As you feel led, begin listing those areas of your life that need to be cleaned up. List the relationships, the attitudes, the rebellious things that need to be changed and begin to watch as those things start being molded and shaped into new, refreshed and restored areas of your life.

 As a reminder, Habakkuk 2:2 says, "Write the vision clearly, so that in your passing throughout the day, you can read it!" Writing these things down will position you for success in decluttering your home as well as your spiritual home.
