purging

so, after taking me a week (literally) to pack up all my stuff, i realized that i am really excited about living minimally next year.

i spent 7 days straight purging, and it felt so good. because i did not want to store any more “stuff” than i had to, i took my time going through everything as i packed. it truly is amazing, sometimes, to realize the excess which has surrounded me. nothing extravagant, just excess. ugh.

i think the same is true of life sometimes. lots of noise…lots of excess…lots of unnecessary “stuff”. it’s been really nice to simplify life these last few weeks, and, taking with me a mere fraction of what i have.simple. concise. good. 

spiritually, i have also been purging…God continues to graciously reveal lots of sin areas in my life, and i am grateful. this summer will likely continue this theme of purging for me….and i am ready. bring it, i say. i want more of Christ and less of me—PURGE ME, Jesus!

Malachi 3:3 “He will sit as a smelter and purifier of silver, and He will purify the sons of Levi and refine them like gold and silver, so that they may present to the LORD offerings in righteousness.
