How To Declutter Your Heart

While it is important to declutter your house, it’s just as important to declutter your HEART.

Yesterday I invited you to join me for a 30 Day Declutter Challenge.
Declutter your heart

I have a confession to make.  My house is full of clutter — stacks of books, piles of paper, boxes of toys, and a wide variety of other things. I don’t know about you, but I don’t really like living with clutter. It weighs me down, slows me down, and zaps me of energy and productivity. It’s time for me to declutter.

To be honest, my  home isn’t the only place that needs a deep declutter.  My heart has filled up with clutter as well, which can hurt relationships, steal my joy, and keep me from focusing on what really matters.

How To Declutter Your Heart

Clutter in my home is often a matter of the heart.  Often I crave things to fill a void that God was made to fill. When I fill that void in my heart with a relationship with Him, I find that I’m not as drawn to things and stuff. My focus will be on having more of what really matters, and less of what doesn’t.

What are some things that may clutter your heart?

  • Pride
  • Discontentment
  • Anger
  • Unforgiveness
  • Selfishness
  • Bitterness
  • Worry
  • Negative thoughts
  • Grudges
  • Past hurts

Each of us have different struggles, and your clutter may be different than my clutter. Check your heart, and make your own list of the things that you need to in order to declutter your heart.

How Do You Declutter Your Heart?

 1. Ask God to show you the sin in your heart.

This can be wrong thoughts, attitudes, or emotions. Be honest and open before Him, and listen to His voice.

2. Ask His forgiveness.

If needed, apologize to the person you have hurt by wrong heart attitudes.

3. Get rid of the wrong thinking.

Clear your mind of fear, thoughts of failure or inability. Bring those wrong thoughts captive to the obedience of Christ. Refuse to dwell on them, and replace them with His truth.

If needed, apologize to the person you have hurt by your wrong heart attitudes.

4. Give God your expectations.

Often we allow things to build up in our hearts due to our expectations. People don’t do what we think they should, and then we harbor anger, bitterness, or unforgiveness.  Giving God those expectations protects our hearts.

5. Replace the negatives in your heart and fill the void with:

  • God’s Word
  • Prayer
  • His joy

Before we begin to declutter our homes, I encourage you to  take time  to declutter your heart.
