When Stuff's Not Enough offers a spiritual guide to cleansing your heart to declutter your home. It is rich in practical tips and inspirational guidance, drawing on the Bible and on the author's life experience.
Each chapter includes "Journaling Jots" to help you chart your path: an assignment for the reader. Even if you cannot complete the exercises, at the very least, read the scripture from your Bible. In 1 John 2:27 we’re told, “As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit—just as it has taught you, remain in him.” By reading the scripture, you’ll ensure that you’ll be learning from and placing your situation in the hands of the One who created you.
As you embark on this journey, I ask you to pack a notebook and a Bible. Even if the most writing you prefer to do in a given day is scribbling your signature on dotted and solid black lines, you’ll find journaling is well worth the effort. When dismal days interrupt your progress, looking back on the pages will serve as both a reminder and motivator of the transformation occurring in your life. You can go as slowly or as quickly as you prefer through this book.
At my lowest points, when I would begin reading another book (that I was convinced would rid me of some of my struggles), usually by the first five pages I was already overwhelmed. I was overwhelmed by how much I needed to remember and how much change my life needed.
Now I know it is Christ who enables us to change, and when change is made it’s usually made in steps, little ones at that. By reading small chunks at a time your heart and mind can digest the information without having information indigestion.
