1 Word: Excess

It’s 1 Word Wednesday.

Today’s word for me is EXCESS.

I’m struggling to let go of stuff. Last night I went through my closet and pulled out over half of what I own to donate. Still, there’s too much.

It’s a terrible feeling to sit in the middle of your closet floor and realize that your stuff has been holding onto you. It’s a terrible feeling to realize that your stuff has possibly been taking the place of your very being that should have been filled with God.

Stuff. Really.

How dumb is that? How did I let my excess get so out of control?

“Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; a man’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions” (Luke 12:15)

It is time to change. Today is a new start. Less excess. A lot less excess.

How about you? What’s your 1 word for today?
