Tomorrow is Easter, the end of the Lenten season. As we recognize and celebrate Christ’s death and resurrection, many reflect on what it means to be reborn. When we take up the cross to follow Jesus, we die to self and are raised to life with Christ. A New Creation. What an amazing thought is this?!
I like to think of this in relation to what it is like when you go through the decluttering and organizing process with your home. When you declutter, you get rid of everything that you no longer need in your life, what no longer serves you, the things that weigh you down and create a burden on your soul. The same thing happens when Christ enters your life. You enter a process of cleaning out all the gunk in your life, all the sin that keeps you from Him. You can then organize your life in a way that sets the focus on things that matter- Christ. When we declutter, we can then reevaluate what is important, and organize our things in a way that refects that and helps us to focus on the priorities.
As we enter Easter, I invite you to evaluate what is no longer serving you: be it a grudge, or all those sweaters from high school you’ll never wear again.
Peace and Love,
