Closet clean outs are a thing of spring, as are graduations, weddings, and yard work. Sometimes you may find yourself doing yard work for a backyard wedding or graduation party while wearing clothes you forgot you had, but found during your closet clean out!
There are times when life gets cluttered and items that once meant something fall to the back of the closet. My friend Krista has a closet for every season jam-packed with clothes she’s owned since High School. Every once in a while she’ll root around and find an old gem and reintroduce it into her wardrobe, like a black velvet jacket with thick shoulder pads. She’s got the know-how to remove said pads and crunch up the collar so this jacket takes on a whole new look. Krista’s Instagram shows many before and after photos of her fashionable re-do’s. She remembers every item of clothes she has ever purchased and she lovingly cares for every piece…be it her favorite prom gown or her most old ragged blue jeans.
Acts 3:21 and other places in the Bible tell us the “God makes all things new.” This is not just a vision to reflect on at the beginning of the year but now as you checkout your neighbor’s goods at a garage sale or clean out your desk at work. There is never a day God can’t make things new again.
We are halfway through 2017 and as you take inventory on how this year had been remember there is never a day God can always make something new again, and the comeback is always stronger than the setback.
