Sisters, come on in and grab a cup of tea and lets talk about ...search of something lovely. I love to decorate and I really want or desire this fabulous closet in my head. My closet is small but I have big dreams for it so I have been goggle and bing searching all day. Check out my pictures I found. There are different elements of the pictures I like.
During my bible study I read Phillipians 4:8:
8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. (NIV)
Yes, my desire is for a beautiful closet that will make me smile everytime I walk in. The problem is I am having problems departing with ALL my stuff. I have invested so much money in my garments and I don't know if I will be able to replace my things in the future with the same high quality merchandise. If I throw away my cowboy boots will it come back in style by the fall? How about my neon sweater from junior high school? or my double belts?
I have had to pray about the issue because I feel stuck and I really dream of having a lovely closet. I don't want to remain in the same place. I really want change. How do I get rid of things with so much meaning? I should give away my suits to a worthy cause but for some reason I can't follow through with it. I have told myself to get rid of everything and enjoy starting all over from scratch. Okay it didn't work! I have outgrown most of the style of my clothes in my closet but some how I am having problems parting with it.What could I be holding on to?
What issue or thing are you finding hard to part with or just give up? You desire a lovely life or in my case a lovely closet but lack of TRUST seems to be holding you back. You really have to trust the Lord with all your heart.
You have to trust the Lord with your issue. I have to trust that when I get rid of something I will not all of a sudden need it. You have to trust that the Lord will be with you as you move to change in your life.
The Lord wants you to have a lovely life but you have to trust him every step of the way. Even when things get hard and emotional. The Lord will give us the desires of our heart. It can me anything we can imagine, even a fabulous closet:)
