Spring cleaning

I've been working hard over the last few days cleaning my home. The first thing I did was get rid of everything that we no longer use. This includes clothing, shoes, toys, household items etc. The next thing I did was sort like items. This makes it a whole lot easier when looking for something when they are all together. Next, I found a place for everything and put everything in it's place. After a good cleaning, I'm finally happy with the results. Here is where I am so far.

Office- moved furniture and cleaned, put in rug, labeled folders and files, labeled all cord with tape and marker.

Dinning room- cleaned and organized cabinets, dust furniture.

Bathroom- cleaned and disinfected everything, put in air fresheners, washed mats.

Kitchen- organized pantry, cleaned fridge and freezers, cleaned all appliances and surfaces.

Now, the next phase of my spring cleaning is the cleaning of my life. I first want to get rid of all things not pertaining to God, my father. I will be a work in progress, but I will be in prayer on my journey of changing. Good qualities will be grouped together and bad qualities will be thrown out. I will cleanse my mind of all impurities. Clean my character and organize my time to allow for fellowship with Him. I will do a complete overhaul of my life during this season. Planting seeds expecting a harvest of righteousness. I have different categories I'm currently working on.

Spiritual- I'm developing a more intimate relation with the Holy Spirit. I want to be able to hear God speak to me and guide my life. I want to become a prayer warrior and have my life line up with His word.

Physical- I want to lose some pounds and create an exercise routine that works for me. Tone up some areas and become healthy. Eat healthier for me and my family.

Psychological- Learn new things and continue to grow in knowledge. Use what wisdom I do have to help fellow Christians. Create new opportunities for myself with going back to school. Have a positive attitude on life.

Spring cleaning is both my clutter in my home and in my life as well. I want to start a new beginning in Christ. Creating a home that praises Him and a body that does also. All these things I will do to glorify Christ.
