Finding Order in Chaos

I’d like for you to meet Ann.  Ann had decided that she had had enough!  She just couldn’t take it not one minute more.  The Clutter Monster HAD to go!  She had to de-clutter and get her house in order NOW!  But she needed some help, someone to keep her motivated, someone to guide her through the organizing process … so she called in OYS!!   After receiving her distress call, I packed by bag, jumped into the OYS mobile and off I went.

Ann met me at the door and at once, I knew that I had gotten there just in the nick of time.  The Clutter Monster was on the rampage!  We sat down for a minute just to get to know each other a little better.  Then I took a tour of the space.  Ann was so apologetic along the way.  She just didn’t understand…

It’s a New Season

31397643_s

It’s a New Season and the Name of the Game is CHANGE!!  The Fall season is the best time of the year to prepare for change.  Nature does it perfectly, as the leaves change color and fall from the trees. We watch in amazement… Our lives are also changing constantly,  yet another NEW season of growth & transition.

For most of us, the shift in our daily routine, it again is a routine …. The kids are back to school and we are on a Fall schedule to make sure the homework is done before bedtime. Preparations are made the night before, to ensure that everyone gets out the house in time and in their respective places on time.

So from September until about the middle of December, we are in transition.  I’d like to suggest that we start preparing for the holidays now, because before you know it, a new year will be upon us.  It’s a New Season! Take a moment, just a moment, to look back over the year of 2017.  Look at how much our Lives has changed. The kids are a little older and I am sure that we are a LOT wiser.

Now that we have had just a moment to reflect on our past, let’s look AHEAD to our future.  Think Positive thoughts!  Capture our dreams & visions and don’t let them go! Identify those obstacles, which may hinder our smooth transition & growth… those things that might get in the way.

Plan NOW for an AMAZING …

“Own Who You Are and…”

Philippians 1-6

Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:  …… Philippians 1:6 KJV

  • Always be willing to learn and grow
  • Don’t change for anyone but YOURSELF
  • Strive to be the BEST YOU, you can be!

If you are waiting for someone else to look at you differently, to treat you better or to change for you, etc.  I’d strongly suggest that you search yourself first and then your perspective of others and what they think about you will change.  Trust me, I speak from experience …but that’s a whole ‘nother story!  But what I want to share with you today, is what prompted this post…

There had been a few incidents that had occurred during my organizing sessions, that made me doubt my true calling. As I was questioning the Lord about whether I misunderstood what He called me to do, this is what He said to me…

“Own who you are … I will finish what I’ve started in you!”

Since starting Order Your Steps, 6 years ago, I’ve been blessed that I have not had any major mishaps, i.e. “breaking stuff”! 😦  However, in spite of the recent mishaps, the clients had been very understanding, but the endless loop of thoughts in my mind had really been wearing on me.  I am sure that this never happens to you…  when those inner voices make us 2nd-quess who we are and our abilities!

Romans 8 1

Now, the Lord did clarify for me that my gift is organizing, NOT moving stuff!! :-/ But I’m learning, although it’s difficult, to accept my humanity.  As I’ve shared many, many times, I really don’t like to make mistakes, and yes, even “constructive criticism” is a bit painful. But I’m learning to store it away for now, since I’m sure that it will be very useful in the future.

“Own who you are … I will finish what I’ve started in you! 

I had a friend to ask me “when will I get to easy street? You know, when I’ll have all the answers”…  I told her that when you think you have reached easy street, there is another road “up the way”!
