    I’m on a mission to declutter my home. The filing cabinet was first, but my closet is on my list. So I totally get where you are coming from with this post! Such a great way to look at our spiritual lives.

      Hi Heather~ I have found there is always a lesson God needs to teach me in what can seem like simple things, but they become so profound to my spiritual well-being! Blessings to you!

  3. I love this parallel between cleaning out your closet and not hanging on to toxic things. I’ve recently began decluttering my apartment and it makes me realize that my joy is not found in physical items…because when I get rid of them I can be just as happy and free of materialism.

      Sarah Jean~ The older I have become the more I realize true happiness is never found in material things. They can make you temporarily happy until they break or something new comes along, but only the peace of God truly gives us happiness. Thanks for your comment! Have fun decluttering!

    I think we’re always looking to “clean up things” that we would know are NOT pleasing to God

    • Sheila Rhodes says:

      Andi~ You are right because as Christ followers we have the conviction of the Holy Spirit to steer us towards obedience.

    This is a good analogy. Sometimes my old ways can just feel too comfortable. I need to turn away from them and replace them with His best for me.

    Sheila, I loved this post! I even shed a fear tears while reading it because I don’t want Satan to cause me to keep the “just in case” things in my life. I want the Lord’s best for my life. Thank you for sharing with Thankful Thursdays. I hope to see you again next week.

      Lori~ Thank You so much for your encouragement and for the link-up! I totally understand about the tears. I am thankful for the work God continues to do in me and how that can be a blessing for others. I’m looking forward to reading the other links 🙂 Blessings to you!

  9. Beautiful post. Speaking of actual closets… I have been guilty of the “Just in case” just in case I go to a camo inspired party or event… lol Not a good way to live your life.
