How freeing and relaxing it is to let go of excess in our schedule and possessions. To move through your day lightly, with breathing room and extra time.
When you think of letting go of something in your schedule, what comes to mind?
When you think of letting go of excess material possessions, what's your first thought?
You can go through your schedule and possessions with God, deciding what to keep and what to let go. Walk through your rooms and ask God, "What should I donate?" Look at your calendar and ask God, "What should I release?" God will give you the strength to make these changes, and you will feel so much lighter as a result.
Here's a helpful prayer: Dear God, I need to slow down and simplify, and focus upon what really matters. Thank you for gently lifting away distractions and detours, and setting me on the right course. Please show me what I need to let go of, and help me to do so.
And here's a supportive scripture: I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength. Philippians 4:11-13
