Declutter the Stress in Your Life

Sisters in Christ, Come on in and grab a cup of tea. Let's talk about ...Declutter the Stress in Your Life.

Peace, I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27

According to several research findings, almost 18 million Americans take the drug Prozac to help them cope with some sort of stress. Over 70 million people go to their doctor for some sort of sleeping problem. Many Americans choose not to use their vacations days. However, when asked many working Americans admit that they are stressed-out daily.

Living a peaceful life, free from stress is important to God. However, in reality many Christians are not living the type of life the Lord has for them. As a Christian you can't let sickness, stress, tiredness, or anxiety get the best of you because it shows a lack of trust in God. You can not control what happens to you in a day. You can control how you react to your problems. The main thing we need to do is to give our cares to the Lord. Psalm 55:22 says Cast your care a on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken (NIV).

Start Small.

You do not have to make big changes in order to have peace. Start Small with decluttering. Take time to declutter your life both your mental or physical space.  Pack up old things or the things you no longer find useful. The rule is if you haven't used it or wore it in a year throw it out. You don't have to just throw things away, you can also make money with the things you no longer want.

1. Thred Up

2. Poshmark

3. Snob Swap

4.  Ebay

5. Josies Friends (kids)

Starting small to declutter will help your wallet feel better and you will realize that you do not need so many things just taking up space.
