Good morning my sweet friend,
Here is your challenge for this week, this busy crazy pre-thanksgiving week. Take a slow walk through your home. How do you feel? Calm and relaxed. Peaceful. Are you living with things you love? Do you have a comfy chair of your own propped with fluffy pillows? Is light streaming through your windows? Do plants seem to welcome you as you come in the door? Do scented handles allow you to breathe in lavender calmness? Are your favorite books stacked neatly beckoning you to sit and enjoy a much-needed respite from a world of chaos?
Or is there clutter everywhere? Dirty dishes on the counter? Clothes randomly strewn about? What do you see? Clutter in your home brings clutter in your spiritual life. Friends, Jesus reminds us that each of us needs a sacred space to find relaxation and connect with the spiritual. A quiet place of prayer. If you don’t have your own sacred space, don’t despair. Start by selecting a comfy chair and a small table for books, reading glasses and a cup of tea. Work outwards from there decluttering and creating visual beauty. If Jesus knocks on the door of your heart, is there room in your inn for Him?
