(John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly).

Jesus wants you to enjoy a …. Rich…satisfying life. Without getting bogged down by things that don’t add value or meaning. Robyn Coffman says, ‘Clutter isn’t only what you can see; it’s what you can’t see. It perpetuates your overloaded schedule, endless commitments and overwhelming fears. A cluttered mind means over-thinking, over-reacting, over-analysing, over-worrying and over-committing. So de-clutter your mind by giving yourself permission to have a not-to-do list: Not to feel guilty for saying no to something that may be good, but not right for you. Not to hang something new in your wardrobe without giving something away… hint hint. Not to feel over-responsible for everybody else’s well-being. Not to say yes just because you’ve been invited. Not to schedule busy activities on Sundays and family days. NOT to BUY something JUST because it’s on sale… guilty. Not to ruminate over your own, or other people’s mistakes. Not to compare yourself with someone else.

The more you give yourself permission not to do, the more you free yourself to live a centred, abundant life. And God will help you live this way. Listen: ‘ (Isaiah 40:29-31 29 He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. 30 Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; 31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint).  Make spending time with God each day a priority, and everything else will fall into place.
