Clearing a Pathway

Standard

What if I gave away everything? What if I took all the books I don’t read, the cards I don’t send, the clothes I don’t wear but think I will one day and gave them to someone who would? I feel a strange stirring in my spirit as I write this and I feel as though I not only have too much, but I don’t use half of what I’ve got. What if I gave it all away? Even on the off chance that I would need it later, I am blessed enough to be able to buy it! What an odd place to be—what a greedy place to be. Even if I did give it all away, I would be able to get it back if I wanted to. I don’t think that this is the reason God blesses us: so that we can flaunt what we have or can get. I’m getting ready to go through my stuff with a new perspective, asking “Do I use it? Would it make me happier to see someone else use it? Can I live without it?” I’m guessing the answers are not going to be that surprising. I don’t want to be someone who doesn’t or can’t hear God’s call because stuff is blocking the channels. I’m off to clear a path.

About chronicchristian

I am a mother of 2, married to the best man in the world for 10 years and chasing after what God wants for my life. I currently deal with some symptoms some like to refer to as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I refer to them as past symptoms as I believe God is doing something awesome and she who guards her lips guards her life. This blog is good therapy. Maybe not for you, but definitely for me. God is good and I intend to prove it.
