Simplifying My Life

Some few weeks ago, I sorted out some of my clothes and made a decision to pack even those I still use (just not very often), to give away.. Now, I'm covering all of my treasured books... For the others, sorting them out to either throw, burn or give away.. What's going on with me?

I'm actually simplifying my life... releasing many of my stuff to the Lord... I feel like it's good to be detached with many things I've had for a long time.. I feel like, it's a sort of symbolism for my detachment from this world and from much memories that I look back to when I see traces of them... (Maybe I'll reserve memories in my blogs; then it would be in just one place and more organized, right? :p ) I feel like these are baggages that I have to let go and stop maintaining through material things...

I'm releasing them so that I'll have lesser stuff, lesser things to maintain... lesser things to look back to.. more time to look to the Lord.. grow in faith, pursue Spiritual disciplines.. make more memories... spend time with more people.... serve more! love more! care more! The highest of all, look like my Lord Jesus more everyday..

May I not be too attached to the things/ people in this world, Lord... but to focus in serving You and others with a sustained and increasing passion.

Draw my heart to long for you with an unquenchable thirst -- the thirst of a satisfied soul! <3
