Poverty Spirit Detox | Letting Go of the Things that are Owning You

You ever get the mood to get rid of ALL the things, but then feel guilty about just throwing stuff out when you really should hold onto it and try to sell it first?Yeah, me too...and that's how I end up with my spare bedroom being a never ending turn-style of random boxes of stuff I should have just donated to the thrift store months ago.This past Christmas as I was asked what I wanted, it struck me that what I really wanted was less stuff and more free space. So the wishlist I gave my husband was more a list of stuff I wanted to finally get rid of, rather than a list of new things I wanted to bring into the house.

What if God doesn't need us to defend His actions?

As we enter the new year these days between Christmas and New Year's can be an excellent time for reflection and setting our intention and resolutions for 2017.When we think of resolutions thoughts of hitting the gym, starting a diet, or instituting some new habit come to mind.
