Cleaning Up...


Clearing the clutter..........

....... There is a great post over at Edge of Design...... If you get a minute take the time to visit and read. Clutter.... it is a problem I know in my life and it seems that I hear it running through the blog world. Ladies are taking time to fast and pray....... Now fasting is not always about food.... It can be the TV. OUCH ! It can be the computer OUCH OUCH...... It can be books !!!!! OH my.... I have hundreds of books and I love to read...... I love Christian fiction..... I read every book that Frank Peretti writes....... I would say to you to get them and read them if you love Christian Fiction but I do not want to do that... Right now I am reading a book titled Black, Red, White... The Circle Trilogy by Ted Dekker....... It is wonderful but it is fiction..... and I am not telling you to read that one..... It is just a point I am making. The post over at Edge of Design hit home today and I need to stop and listen as the Spirit speaks... I am an obsessive personality and I have to be so careful with my time.... I need to clear the clutter and take time to sit and listen to the Teacher.......... over the years I have been privy to some great teaching but at the end of the day I have found the greatest knowledge with the word of God on one side and the strong concordance on the other and the Holy Spirit showing me secrets in His word.............
... I want to be faithful the the spirit of God and stop and clear the clutter........... here is to the spiritual house keeping that the Lord seems to be doing............

Denise,

I do have you on my prayer list and Grams too. I am always praying for my blogging friends.

I really needed to read your post. I am so busy sometimes that I don't have time to listen to the Spirit. Thanks for reminding me that He should come first in my life.

Thanks for the prayers for all the ladies and for Michelle.

Blessings and love,
Mary

I think that for this very reason it is good that we sit and be still and know He is God and get away by ourselves and pray. There is nothing better to clear the clutter in our hearts!

I love your icon for this, can I borrow it sometime?

Hugs, Sharon

Oh I agree. There are many times that my blogging has become a priority and I never want my kids to say that they missed me when I was on the computer...how sad! That being said, I believe that blogging ministers to many, many people who maybe don't meet Christians face to face at all. But everything in moderation and I, too, struggle with finding the balance. Many times (like last Friday) I have to pull back and prioritize. Blogging should be a relaxing thing, and not something on our to-do lists. I also understand compulsiveness -- been there (unfortunately) and done that! Praying for you. I'll email you. ((( hugs ))) D
P.S. How would we have met on this side of heaven except for blogging? :)
