Cleaning Out!

Last Saturday I spent the day cleaning out bathroom drawers & kitchen cabinets...I am almost embarrassed to admit it...I threw out 2 bags of trash from them. If you would have came to my house and accidently looked in my closet...I might have had to place a gag order on you. was awful girls!! Monday...I had a major migraine...didn't move most of the day, but knew I had to tackle that closet! I decided the best way was to just drag it all out and only put back in what I needed. I should be ashamed really...I am giving away 2 big black trash bags of clothes but the sad part closet is still full.
I have to tell you every time I  walk into that closet or open those cabinets in the kitchen and makes me feel so good...clean...refreshed...decluttered and gives me peace. I hope it stays that way for a long time. I gets busy...clothes get unorganized...we don't take the time to put things back where they belong and think...Oh I'll do it later.
While I was cleaning I thought alot about my relationship with God. I need to clean out the old...dirty rags that are cluttering up my sins I want to hang onto. A cleaning from the inside out.  It always feels so good when I give my sins to God and ask forgiveness and let him cleanse me with His righteousness. It's a daily meeting I need to have with God.
Today I'm going to clean my kids rooms...oh fun! Just like in my life though...the cleaning is never over until I see Jesus someday in all His Glory. Until then...I will praise Him for His forgiveness and mercy.
How do your closets look? And do you need to "declutter" your life?
 Let him wash you white as snow today! 
Jesus paid it all...all to him owe...sin had left a crimson stain...he washed it white as's washed away...all my sin...all my shame...Oh praise the one who paid my debt and raised this life up from the dead!


  1. Love the feeling of clean cupboards, closets, rooms... and I love even more when I'm uncluttered before my God. Great post!

  2. I need to literally clean my house out, and spiritually clean myself out! Great post and lots to think about! Thanks :)
