Covid-19 gave me lots of time and I (mostly) used it well. I divided my clothes into these four piles on top of the bed.
- Uncomfortable- definitely that beautiful, but so itchy blue sweater.
- Too big-this was clearly the smallest all the assorted groups!
- Too small- ok. This called for realism.
- Needs fixing- and the willingness to actually fix the garment!
As I worked, I wondered about my life as a person who long ago asked Jesus to be her Lord and Saviour. As a result, I cleaned two closets at the same time.
What bad habits had God been pointing out, ones that itched, yet stayed with me?
Was I getting too big for my britches, taking on tasks that I wasn’t qualified to tackle?
Was it time to let go of tasks and responsibilities that I had outgrown?
Were there relationships and more that I needed to fix?
“If you decide for God, you don’t fuss about what’s on the table or whether the clothes in your closet are in fashion. There is more to your life than the food you put in your stomach, more to your outer appearance than the clothes you hang on your body.(From Matthew 6:25-26, MSG)
