Where does one begin when it’s time to downsize? When you look at an accumulated lifetime it can seem more than overwhelming. We wonder what to hang onto and what to dispose of and almost always find a reason to hang on.
It’s not easy to let go of objects that hold special memories or to toss aside things you’ve worked hard to obtain, but the truth is we can’t take anything with us to the other side of eternity. So where do we start?
Maybe it’s best to go through one area at a time and begin with baby steps. We aren’t going to be able to do it all at once. After all, this mess didn’t occur overnight.
It’s a good thing God looks beyond all the sins of our past, present and future and sees only the perfection of His Son. There are no messes to clean up, no regrets, no tears to wipe away – only forgiveness and a new beginning. The things of this world mean nothing. The love of God is everything.
