Is your closet too crowded?
Perhaps the single greatest indicator of the overload that we have in life are closets.
They are packed.
It doesn't matter how big our closets are.
Sooner or later we fill them up.
There is a closet rule of life that states:
1. Clothes expand to fill all available closet space
2. Sooner or later if you keep getting more clothes you either have to:
A. Get more closet space
B. Get rid of some clothes
2B is what we hate to do.
But if we are TO BE what we are TO BE,
we need to learn the rule of 2B and get rid of some clothes.
Time is like closet space. We have a limited amount of it.
We keep putting more and more things in until our time is cluttered.
The more cluttered it gets, the more things are out of place.
The time that we should be sleeping, we've got something else in that space.
The time that we should be spending with family, we've got something else in that space.
The time that we should have to ourselves to do whatever we do to help our spirit, we've got something else in that space.
Even as our closet hinges strain to keep from bursting, we still try to put more stuff in.
Take a look around your closet of time right now.
How much has accumulated that you should have gotten rid of long ago.
They still may be good clothes, but your closet is just too full.
We have habits that we formed in our teenage years that should have long ago been removed from our closets.
Some even have friends that should have long ago been removed, for they no longer fit our style or destination.
As you change and grow, you should change what's in your closet.
Maybe we don't need more stuff in the closet.
Maybe we don't need a bigger closet.
Maybe we just need to clean out some stuff and not with the purpose to make room for more stuff.
We may just need some space,
In a lot of areas,
For a lot of reasons.
There is a spiritual saying that tells you to go into your closet to pray.
For many of us, there's simply no room.
Go look at your bedroom closet right now.
Chances are, it will reflect your closet of time.
