Episode 87: Begin to Declutter Your Home
/

We are getting close to the end of our journey in the Begin to Declutter series. This series has been speaking to my heart, and I hope that it has been of some help to you as well. On the last podcast episode, we discussed Begin to Declutter Your Relationships. That is a heavy topic. I say heavy because tackling anything as far as relationships are concerned required grit, intentionality, boundaries, clarity, and purpose.

Even with all of that, we have to begin the task of going from wishful thinking and moving towards reality, or in other words, dealing with what is.

Today’s podcast is entitled Begin to Declutter your Home. Take a listen!

Introduction Part 1 Begin to Declutter your Soul

Earlier this week, we began our journey of decluttering. Decluttering takes work. It is not for the faint at heart. And trying to do everything all at once will leave us in a state of discouragement. We have to work on decluttering one area at a time, with one issue/area of brokenness at a time so that we don’t end up on overload or overly discouraged. Decluttering isn’t a one person job.

Introduction Part 2 Begin to Declutter Your Soul

We have to allow God to be in the driver’s seat, and enlist close friends and community to help us navigate the journey to the end of the tunnel in each of these categories that we have been discussing. For some, the process could take two years. For others, we might be looking at ten. Putting one foot forward is the starting point. Today, we are going to begin the journey of decluttering our souls. Yes, that’s right. We are going on an adventure that involves cleaning out the bad chemicals in our souls.

Begin to Declutter your Soul Bible Verses to Meditate On:

1 Peter 2:9

But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.

2 Corinthians 4:9

We are hard pressed on all sides, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed.

John 10:10

The thief cometh not but to steal and to kill and to destroy. I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

Have a blessed rest of your Wednesday!

Clearing the Clutter and Clearing the Mind

De-cluttering and organizing our homes leads to de-cluttering and organizing our minds.  Clearing the clutter leads to clearing the mind. It gives us mental space to think.  One thing that I noticed at my own house is that if I am looking at too many things in different spaces, then I am unable to focus on what the task is at hand.  

All of a sudden, I am thinking, “Why is that sitting there?”  Wow, I have a sink full of dishes.  There is so much trash on the floor.  I seem to notice every little thing.  Since my workspace is in the kitchen, I like to clean this area first.  My mind is ready for clarity, and free to allow the words to come.

In October of 2018, my cousin decided to enlist my help in beginning her de-cluttering process so that she could feel free to work in her home office.

We were able to get the hallway closet and one of her two bedroom closets done.  The way that I decided to tackle the hallway closet was to take everything out and create three piles: a donation pile, a garbage pile, and a keep pile.  After emptying the whole closet, and creating all three piles, then I put everything in the keep pile back into the closet.

She had already gone through her belongings in the bedroom closet, so we didn’t need to take everything out.  I just needed to organize everything in this closet.  We were working and listening to preaching and gospel music, which made the time go by pretty fast.  If you feel led, send me a message below on how you tackled the art of decluttering.  God bless!
