As we've mentioned before, using scripture (straight quotes from the bible) is a highly effective way (for some) to develop your goals, and help lead you through the day-to-day activities of life, including clearing clutter and being more effective at home and office. A devotion would include some thoughts to reflect on along with the scripture. For instance, for a religious family, your grandparents may have used to read a daily scripture out loud at breakfast time and then spend a minute or so discussing what the family thought that scripture meant to the group or how they could apply it, making it 'devotion time'.
Singing superstar Rhianna recently shared a Instagram photo from the book Starting Your Day Right: Devotions for Each Morning of the Year by Joyce Meyer referencing a devotion about clearing clutter.
“You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.”
—Isaiah 26:3 NKJ
Sometimes we complicate our life by taking on things that God has not told us to do. We add stress, confusion, and clutter with the unnecessary things we take on and hold on to. We need to use our faith to let go of whatever clutters our mind and keeps us from peace.
Ask God to show you ways to simplify your life. Take an inventory today, and start throwing out whatever is filling your life with unproductive distractions. God wants you to enjoy your day, so get rid of whatever He shows you to give up.
OrganizingLA is not drawn to an particular set of theories or religious views. Whatever works for our professional organization clients is a personal choice. Everyone gets motivated differently, we just like to have the conversation and the exchange of ideas. How do you feel?
