7And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds
in Christ Jesus.
8Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure,
whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.
This morning my husband needed me to find a key that was possibly floating around in my purse. I decided that everything needed to come out so that I could do a thorough search. To my amazement, I found a lot of J U N K !
What did I find in my purse?
Old and new tissues - Out with the old - J U N K - in with the new.
Tracks and info about our church - That's important... everyone needs to know about Jesus!
Empty communion cups - Glad I took communion but as holy as that sounds, I don't need to keep the cup as a keepsake! J U N K
Prayer cards and papers from another church - I wouldn't call it J U N K because I need prayer at times but I don't think I need to keep it in my purse.
Old grocery lists - J U N K
Paper clips - J U N K
Coupon for an Italian beef sandwich - Needs to be put in my coupon box, sort of J U N K.
Other things I'm keeping:
Essential oil (don't ask...)
Tape measure (for thrift shopping)
What else do I need to purge that isn't kept in my purse? I keep all kinds of things in my heart some things need to stay, some things need to go! J U N K!
- Holy Spirit

What J U N K do you need to get out of your purse? Better yet, what J U N K do you need to get out of your heart?
Create in me a clean heart, O God;
and renew a right spirit within me.
