Simplify Your Life

“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them” (Ephesians 2:10)

When heartache fills your life with despair, and trouble seems to never end, perhaps it’s time to re-group your thoughts, energies, and passions.

Learn to develop your talents as you lean on the One who entrusted them to your keeping. Stay busy, utilize your gifts, and God will heal your heart. Don’t hide away, but reach out to others. Let their concern be your crutch until you can again stand. Simplify, re-group, and then step into your new future. Because when we let God be our anchor, He will make all things new.

Simplify your life
Clean up the clutter
Empty out the shed
Sweep out the gutter

Just vacuum away
All hidden debris
Wash off the surface
And then all can see

Just clean it all out
There’s no need to wait
Just box it all up
In that old battered crate

Time to d-clutter
And it’s not too tough
Take time to discard
All that very old stuff

Then haul it away
Or leave at the street
So after trash day
Everything is left neat

Then, take time to shop
For things now and then
And put treasures back
Where clutter began
