I feel like I have too much stuff. As we think about what God has for our lives, and the possibility of moving comes up, I panic about packing up my house.

Why? Because I have stuff that is holding me down. Stuff that I don’t need.

God has been releasing me from my stuff lately. Some of my stuff was burned away, other things have been wrecked by water in our basement. Through it, I’m learning to let it all go. Stuff is seeming less important.

How much do I need? What do I need? How many clothes is reasonable? What’s excessive?

I have a lot of thoughts, but not a lot of answers at the moment.

Even if we don’t move, I want to be freed up from this feeling of stuff.

How do you keep stuff from becoming a latch that ties you down?

Feel free to weigh in, I’m going to be freeing myself of some items real soon.

“First, help me never to tell a lie. Second, give me neither poverty nor riches! Give me just enough to satisfy my needs.” Proverbs 30:8
