“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose”.
An organized life is a life that flows freely. My calling as a certified professional organizer is to introduce or re-introduce that freedom into my client’s life. Creating an orderly environment does more than allow them to move and think unencumbered; it opens them to a greater understanding of priority and purpose.
Finding ones priority clarifies ones purpose, and this pursuit is played out daily in the theater of the world. Many clients read article after article and purchase mountains of organizing books, yet their desire for a more organized space is never fully realized. That’s because the world see an organized space as ‘the goal’
Organizers understand that an organized space allows room for purpose to flourish. Purpose is hard for many to identify, but that is ultimately what a professional organizer is equip to unveil as sessions become more streamlined and priorities are magnified. A Christian organizer will reflect God’s glory so that our clients see the greater purpose for their lives. When God is the priority, then their purpose is uncovered.
The organizing process is like going through a refiners fire. In the refining process, heat is applied, and the silver and the impurities separate. The pure silver settles to the bottom and the impurities rise to the top where they can be skimmed off. It brings impurities to the surface so they can be removed. During the “heat” of the session, our clients begin to separate the trash from the treasures, and those things that are no longer needed or of little value are discarded or removed. A cluttered and dysfunctional space clogs any ability for God purpose to move into their lives.
Many times this is an agonizing process. But in the larger picture, God is refining their space, and at the same time, refining their hearts so that he can begin to move into their lives<./p>
Towards the end of the session, the purpose of the space becomes clearer, and then priorities also shift. Organizers observe this in many ways, but I’m always moved by my clients tears of joy when they can begin, for the first time in many years, see priority and purpose. It is with great honor and respect that I am guided into homes to introduce or re-introduce, in a very tangible way, priority and purpose into lives that would otherwise be in continued chaos. Space, well organized, is a welcoming stage. In it, you are allowed to think, dream and even focus on your greater purpose.
For when we, who love God, are called according to His purpose, all things will work in harmony…. our spaces included!
