Grudges are a form of clutter that I've learned to ditch along the way. Long before I knew Christ, I decided that it took too much energy to stay angry at someone. Many years ago I had a boyfriend who ... well, let's just say that I had to get a restraining order when we split up. Can you imagine the space that the anger and bitterness would take, if I still carried them around? Since then I've heard something like, "He hasn't paid enough rent to occupy that space in your head," which I think is a good description.
The clutter that I'm working on is distraction. When I pray or read the Bible, I am so easily distracted by everyday "stuff." Trivial things, like "Oh, yeah, I need to wash towels" and "What time do I need to start cooking dinner?" and "Is it nap time yet?" (My son is 15; I'm thinking of my nap time.) My mind races in five different directions at once, and it's everywhere except where I want it to be. This is something that I struggle with daily. If you have any ideas, please let me know!
What clutter have you conquered, or what are you working on?
