Prescription for a Cluttered Life

By grandparenting 6 years ago5 Comments

The last few months have been very busy and hectic for me, my life felt weighed down and cluttered. However, I have been focusing on getting my life, home, and grandparenting ministry in order.

 We are often weighed down with clutter in our lives, focusing on the many petty tasks before us. However, Jesus asks us to rest in him forgetting the worries of the world and focus on Him. If we focus continually on Jesus throughout the day, His presence will bring order to our thoughts, infusing peace into our lives. If we begin each day with Jesus, we will experience the reality of his presence with us. As we spend time with Him, the journey before us opens up step-by- step. He is waiting to smooth our path as we make it a priority to hold his hand and deliberately depend on Him.

 Our grandchildren can also be weighed down with clutter in their lives with their homework and activities just like us. The enemy is watching for vulnerable spots and the unguarded door to the heart of our grandchildren.

 Pray for your grandchildren to guard the doors of their hearts, placing their focus continually on Jesus. Then God will guide their lives step-by-step and your grandchildren will experience the reality of His presence.

    Good article, Lillian. A reminder I need often.

  • Gwen says:

    “Pray for your grandchildren to guard the doors of their hearts” is excellent advice. I first heard it from fellow Grand Camp participant, Vicki Rueckert a couple of GrandCamps ago. She, too, is a wise woman. So good to hear it again from you, Lillian.

  • Thank you, Lillian, I am desperate for the Lord’s help with the clutter in my life! I pray my grandchildren will handle clutter better that I have! God bless you for this good article and I hope many are spurred on like me to let the Lord untangle the mess we make with overload that sometimes is of our own choosing and sometimes not, of our own choosing.

  • Margaret Howard says:

    Thanks for all the wisdom. I to need to focus on God so he can help me with the clutter in my life . I also hope and pray that my children and grandchildern focus on the Lord and let God do His job. God bless you and Mr. penner and family as well.

  • Lydia Harris says:

    I think we can all relate to clutter in our lives, and perhaps most of us struggle to get rid of it.

    Lord, guide us day by day as we seek to declutter our lives so there is more room for Jesus. We want You, the one and only true God, to be our focus and satisfaction. In Your name, amen.
