It’s summertime and for me it means time to clear out. Clear cupboards of old canned foods, clear out closet, sort out some old paper cabinets, my email box is not excluded, I go over emails which I haven’t had the time to delete. Nothing is left out during my summer clearing out.
This got me thinking about our minds and brain which processed so much information daily, weekly, monthly and yearly. We clog them up with both wanted and unwanted stuff. We worry about any and everything.
Infertility makes it worse, we are constantly thinking about our situation, we live and breath it.
Just like our cupboards, closet and cabinets which needs sorting out, so does our minds, we need to daily Purge our minds of the stuff which we have allowed to settle. We are admonished to be of a clean and pure heart.
James 4:8 tells us to purify our hearts, Matthew 23.25. Jesus had strong words to say about the state of the heart. We take so much care of the exterior but inside is full of rotten bones “strong words” indeed.
So straight from my heart is this encouragement for us to, empty out, the negatives, offences, hurt, disappointments, bitterness and guilt. Release all pain and live space within you for joy, love, peace and happiness.
Holding on to things which should be flush out builds up toxins. Bitterness, guilt and worry are infections, holding on to them infects us.
Dealing with infertility, miscarriage and stillbirth can be the start of having a clogged up mind.
Are you holding on to infections like anger and worry? Empty your mind of these feelings, by going over what’s accumulated during the course of the day.
It may appear to be futile exercise but soon you will notice a change in you, a freedom to live without any of the old feelings.
When you make room, your life will be full of good things, joy indescribable and full of glory.
Begin to clear out today for a clean fresh start.
