Uncommon Solutions for Common Clutter

In Florida, summer is not over because school starts; pool toys and sports equipment just share space with backpacks, books, and papers. In most homes, that shared space is limited, but an expert professional organizer can help maximize storage possibilities. From kindergarten to college and beyond, the amount of organization required to keep things in order can be daunting—important items and information can be lost or misplaced. Then, before you know it, the holidays are approaching, bringing additional organizational challenges. Don’t get overwhelmed—call a professional!

Vacation “Theology” You may be surprised to learn that God has a “vacation theology,” but there is also a “vacation heresy”! Our Father is concerned with how we spend every moment of our lives, so we shouldn’t be surprised that He wants us to use vacation time well. But what constitutes “well”? Jesus reveals the basis for this doctrine in Mark 6:31 when He said, “Come away by yourselves to a lonely place and rest awhile.” His disciples had just returned from a strenuous time of proclaiming His message. They had also recently heard of the death of John the Baptizer in prison.
Dan Coggins, Pastor, Northside Bible Church
To top it off, “there were many people coming and going, and they did not even have time to eat.” Jesus knew they needed a rest, some “time off” and away from the challenges of their ministry routine. He understood them: their spiritual, physical, mental, and emotional makeup. We too need rest and an opportunity for “re-creation”. Vance Havner summarized this by saying, “we must come apart lest we come apart!” It is important that we find a way to allow the Lord to restore our spirits and enthusiasm for life. Vacation time can help us gain a different perspective on the rest of the year and refresh us for the challenges that will certainly come our way. There are some dangers however. For every truth of God there is at least one heresy. Christians may be guilty of the common American compulsion to “play at our
work and work at our play.” More energy and planning often goes into the one to three weeks of vacation time than to the remainder of the year. Sometimes our plans or expectations exceed the promise that time off can provide. We try to do so much and miss the “recharge” we need. Goals or hopes are not met. We return disappointed or more tired than when we left. The root of this may be leaving God out of our vacation plans. Failing to consider what would be the best for us and our family spiritually as well what we’d enjoy recreationally. I’m not suggesting that your vacation must be confined to visiting historic churches, going to religious retreats, or getting involved with short-term mission projects. Consult God and brainstorm with the family BEFORE calling AAA or the travel agency. You may “deserve a break,” but why not
go to the One who knows what kind of break you need? Our God is called “the God of all comfort” (2 Corinthians 1:3). Though this refers directly to aid in the trials of life, I believe He wants to help us have the best vacation time we can have. Whether that time is at the beach, in the mountains, around the world, or around the block. Whether it is for two weeks, a month, or just two days, the best time is time spent with Him in the place and doing what He wants us to do while “making the most of the time” (Ephesians 5:16). This year’s vacations can be the best ever! Give Him a chance.
