Christ Like


Simplify to be Christ Like

One's mind clutter can cause much dislike
When in today's world fast be the pace
But it can be simple to be Christ like

Uncluttering may take change lifelike
Examining what's allowed in one's space
As one's mind cutter can cause much dislike

Simplifying gives evil a strike
Giving focus to God in its place 
As it can be simple to be Christ like

Less clutter means more room for Christ
To be in one's life and in one's mind
For to God's glory He was sacrificed

So to the clutter examine and find
What needs decluttering to make right
In worshipping Him one's focus aligned

When to one's mind focus becomes a fight
As one's mind clutter can cause much dislike
Take action in life against this plight
Know it can be simple to be Christ like

Thoughts: In our fast paced world today there are so many things that can clutter our minds and lives in taking away our focus and worship on God. Things such as: Who we associate with, owing more than our pay, saying yes to too many things, thinking technology is the answer in our lives, not getting enough rest and or not planning leisure time, and having no time in savoring and enjoying life; just to name some. Am sure there are more I did not name. When one 's mind and life is cluttered with unnecessary activity it does not allow much room for giving glory to God. Christ glorified God with His very life. It is our destiny to try in becoming more like Christ. Roman's 8:29 reads "For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren."  We were created to become Christ like and that includes worshiping Him and focusing our minds on Him. In examining areas of our lives that takes away from being able to do this, we can make necessary changes towards being more Christ like. Of course, we could never ever be like Christ; but, we must try to declutter our minds and life towards simplification in being able to; because it can be simple to be Christ like.
