Becoming Me: On Decluttering Your Heart

 “Clean your heart and sweep your mind, for certain people and things are in there only to disturb you for all the moments they shall continue to live there!”  ―Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

You should ask yourself this important question: Do I want to be better or bitter? I hope your answer is better! Remember this and never forget it: hating someone is like drinking poison and hoping the other person will die. Hate does damage to you. It does damage to your heart that has already taken enough of a beating. Let hate, anger, and bitterness go. Leave it behind, for it is a burden you were never meant to carry. Love can’t find a home in a heart ruled by bitterness. There just isn’t enough room.

I don’t know when you will be ready to love again, or when you will find that fulfilling relationship. I do know that you need to start making room right now. Declutter your heart! Ask God for the strength to forgive yourself, and then to forgive others who have hurt you. Emotional Spring Cleaning can never come too soon!

This heart will be ready for the new possibilities that await it. And I can tell you something? The possibilities are endless!
