Putting my house in order

I am putting my own house in order, so I would not be blogging for awhile. I have sent for and received Sharp bedrooms, Moben kitchens and Dolphin bathrooms brochures, looked on websites for sash windows, loft and basement information, getting planning permission. There was a church conference with the likes of TD Jakes, Bill Winston, Tudor Bismark, Junita Byrum, and many others which started on Sunday 24th August to Sunday 30th August, but I will not attend, because I have to put my own house in order. Charity begins at home. So I have removed old bedding, smashed up old furniture, old televisions, threw out old carpets, cleaned, scrubbed, polished and I am still cleaning and looking at more things to throwing out the old, which are like fig trees in my life. I even throw out some things at 12.30 a.m in the early hours in the morning. It had to go. As you say, I am in the middle of de-cluttering my house, my life and me.
Deuteronomy 6:11-12 And houses full of all good things, which thou fillest not and wells digged, which thou diggedst not, vineyards and olive trees, which thou plantedst not; when thou shall have eaten and be full;

Then beware lest thou forget the Lord, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.

My version Dear Lord El Shadda, according to your words : Deuteronomy 6:11-12. I thank you, that I am able to fill my house and my other house, which I will get in the future, with all good things, the sharp bedrooms, the mobed kitchens, dolphin bathrooms, the loft and basement being done and have my fridge and wardrobes stocked with all good things to eat and wear and the money to pay for the very best.

I thank you Lord, that I can think big and you have brought me out of a poverty mindset. I thank you for being my Jehovah Jireh and providing me with all these things and more, in Jesus Name Amen.

Sounds tough but is it enjoyable though ? It means that your house becomes a clean new open canvas and you can paint it anyway you like. It might cost a lot though. Does your daughter live with you ? Are you getting any help ?

If those pictures are of your house, it looks pretty "In Order" already. :D strangely enough, I feel like God has spoken to me in your post... Have a great day

I wish you the best. My version of Christianity is one in which God(Jehovah-El Olam;Jehovah-El Elyon;Jehovah-El Shaddai;...) grants me His love,wisdom and power.

Christianity in its true essence, is a religion of love, wisdom and power.

With God's infinite love,wisdom and grace ,we were given the authority and power to do all things that are acceptable in His eyes. Living a quality and wonderful life in which all our needs are met, represents God's Will.

That's the first place to start. I never feel completely together if my home isn't where I want it to be.

Congrats on the renovations dear! ...and thanks for the word :-)

What an inspiring post. I am working on getting my temple in order so that the Holy Spirit's dwelling place is clean. I've committed to eating healthier and less (fasting)and to prayer and meditating.

I join you in your prayer.

God Bless.

The Arrow And The Song


I shot an arrow in the air,

It fell to earth, I knew not where; ;

For so swiftly it flew, the sight

Could not follow it in its flight.


I breathed a song into the air,

It fell to earth, I knew not where;

For who has sight so keen and strong,

That it can follow the flight of song?


Long, long afterward, in an oak

I found the arrow still unbroke;

And the song, from beginning to end, ,

I found again in the heart of a friend. 。

This post spoke to me. I need to put some things aside and get my physical house in order. It's loooong over due.

Hey Felicity, though it can be stressful re-arranging the home, it can also be a really fun time. Make the best of it!
