Cluttered

I am finding it very difficult to post these days. I have a huge list of titles and thoughts and verses to post about and I am finding that my mind is cluttered with them. There is a veritable little whirlwind in my brain. Since the birth of this blog, my intention has been to post my daily devotionals in such a manner that some might be encouraged and that growth would transpire in my life as well as theirs. Recently however, I have found so many areas of my spiritual walk that need work. I am finding that more and more of me needs renovation, some areas even need to be torn down and replaced with new construction. If any of you have done any renovating or construction, you know there is very often -----clutter.
So today, since I don't have to work, my goal is to organize and simplify my thoughts. I am planning to still my body, mind and soul. I plan to converse with my Father and listen for His answer. I plan to declutter the path so I can continue on the journey. I am convicted that being more like Him requires a singlemindedness like His. I am not mine, I am His and that means if I want to be like Him, so I can be with Him, I must be about His business. I am convinced He expects me to be about ministry and not just be busy. As the renovation continues I am confident the clutter will decrease.

Peace and prayers to you all,
Neva

Dear Neva,
There are so many things that clutter up our lives, because we are busy people. Each of us need to time to declutter. I think it is amazing that you recognize that. I am impressed with your spiritual "awareness". You are an example to me.

The Cluttered Mind--should be a movie title. It describes every one of us unless we are in a coma. Really enjoy your website and your posts are very touching and inspiring.

Grace and peace to you

My computer is really slow, especially on the internet. I am impatient and start over clicking on whatever I want. When that doesn't work, I push the refresh button. When that doesn't work I disconnect, delete my extra files and cookies, maybe play a game, and then try to get back on with a faster connection. If it hasn't helped, I actually power down my computer. Amazing how this procedure seems to help. My camcorder requires a similar reboosting time. If a machine needs a break, and a little clearing, how much more do we need that? Happy down time.

I needed that reminder in my own life to step back and de-clutter. I think I somewhat subconsciously was beginning to move in that direction, but I hadn't realized how necessary it was for me to take those steps to spend time with my Father and get my priorities on track. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and your current struggles. I think a lot of us are probably thinking, "Wow, if Neva thinks she needs to do this, then it's probably something I need to think about too."

You are so right, constantly maneuvering around and stepping over clutter makes our journey so much more difficult. Enjoyed your thoughts today.
