When I look around my living room, I see all kinds of clutter. It's not trash necessarily. Maybe it's a misplaced toy or a paper from school that's on the floor. Maybe its a receipt I need to shred or something left behind by someone close to me. Eventually there is so much I feel overwhelmed. Where to start? How do I get to some of the things I really need to do with all of this STUFF in my way?

And it reminds me of my heart.

Yesterday, my mind was so full of stuff, it was hard to wade through to sit down with the Lord and just focus on him. I kept seeing the big decision that needs to be made here or the person I need to touch base with there or the thing I should have said and didn't. There was my football team's loss and my husband's weekend plans that didn't turn out quite like I'd hoped.

And there was conviction...despite the clutter or maybe because of it.

Now, how do I wade through all of it to attend to the important things the Lord has laid before me?

I can't do anything on my own...neither clean my house nor my heart. OK, Jesus, I need Your help!
