Clutter Danger Zone—Deep and Hidden Things

May 10, 2016

This image makes me laugh out loud. I would call this the Clutter Danger Zone.  

I’m not talking about the hoarding kind of clutter; like the kind that can cause a health hazard. 


I’m talking about the small little bumps and bruises kind of clutter.


3 kinds of Clutter that can be Hazardous to your Being

  1. Falling Clutter:  Recently, a girlfriend shared with me that she couldn’t take it anymore.  A particular task had been lurking for a while, literally. She opened the door of a closet and out flies an object. It became the emergency danger zone purge.  Hey, whatever motivates…right?! 

  2. Too Close for Comfort Clutter:  Another story I heard recently was of a drawer so full that it took force to close it and wham…finger injury.  Again, swift and blinding de-cluttering happened. 

  3. Trip and Fall Clutter: Piles on the floor impeding traffic zone which leads to a slip and fall injury. Bruises on the knee and ego!

  4. Maybe, sometimes, we need a twinge of pain to move us forward in this journey. 


Okay, so I’m not wishing for an injury to spur you into action. I am however hoping for something to get you and I unstuck.


Today, as I have sat in front of my computer in a frozen state, I started to think that facing the fear just isn’t worth it. It’s easier to stay in the comfort zone; the easy street. What is this strong force that keeps me paralyzed? It’s a steady battle in the oppressed mind. Oppression, a sense of being weighed down in body or mind. 


So the formula for beating this oppressive mindset is to:

  • Be aware—acknowledge the mind is going down the dark path

  • Capture negative thought—stop it in its tracks

  • Replace with truth—oppression is from the enemy

Mind clutter is hazardous to your being too. It’s likely what has led to the 3 types of dangerous clutter listed above. 


Are you ready to break free? Ready for action?


Let’s practice this out loud:

  • I am aware.

  • I am onto the enemy’s tricks.

  • I am capable of change.

  • I am a conqueror.

  • I can overcome.


The danger is believing the lies. The danger is conceding; throwing in the towel.


Tell me about the dangerous clutter in your life. Whether it be falling articles, finger breaking and toe stubbing physical clutter; or perhaps the threat of mind clutter lurks in the darkness. 


Let’s do this together. Step away from the Danger Zone.


Into the light. One step at a time.





He reveals deep and hidden things;
    he knows what is in the darkness,
    and the light dwells with him. Daniel 2:22
