Clean out your purse!

I finally did it! I cleaned out my giant saddlebag purse. When did I found TONS of trash and junk that I had forgotten.  It was kind of fun looking at grocery lists clear back from October.  It reminded me of what I was doing at that time.  I filled an entire grocery bag full of things I didn’t need anymore!  I can’t believe I was carrying around all that JUNK! With three kids it really doesn’t take long to have an entire restaurant, pharmacy and clothing department all in one bag! So, as I cleared out these items I noticed some of my stock was missing.  I put in some more band aides and a different lotion, and then made sure it was all more organized in different pockets.  And that was that.  It really didn’t take long and I wondered to myself why I hadn’t found time to do it sooner. 
Later that day I was helping with some children and one of them had fallen and scraped their knee.  I was so proud to know exactly were I could find that band aide!  I then was sitting next to a lady who was going through her purse like mad and asked me if I had lotion. I smiled, and it only took me a second to hand it over!
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”  (Jeremiah 29:11)
You see I wasn’t just anywhere; I was helping our church with vacation Bible school!  I truly feel that God was letting me know I was in the right place at the right time!  He prepared me earlier in the day so that I could have that honor in helping others! It is something I enjoy doing and it makes me feel wonderful!
So, I challenge you to clean out your purse too!  What things can you get ride of and clean up in your life to help you on your path. The path God wants you on, because when you are there, you’ll know it!
