Clearing out the emotional clutter
You hear it everyway, we are downsizing, I'm decluttering my house, simplifying. We should all take time to clear out some of our emotional clutter. Just as clearing clutter in your living space calms and soothes you, clearing emotional clutter will help you live life more freely from the heart. Galatians 5:19-21 lists all the toxic emotions some which include hatred, rage, jealousy, envy and discord. Then verses 22 and 23 offer the contrast; love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness. Allow God to clear out the emotional clutter and savor the serenity that comes. Take joy. Take peace.
