Christ so fills my heart and mind It’s where I want to be To leave the hardened world behind For Christ, His face to see!
So capture all my heart and soul With love that fills my eyes For when the Living Word I hold My faith in full does rise!
And help me when I drift away Through waves of toil and care To hold the anchor in the sway My hope in storm to bear!
Never let my heart grow cold Nor hardness subtlety creep But make my faith become more bold My heart and mind, please keep!
Christ abounds in love and grace, My shortfall it is lost! He overcomes my sin, no trace! Into deep sea, it’s tossed!

One of the buzz words of the moment is ‘declutter’. You know your husband is really bored when he goes into his office and starts having a clear out. Now he is enjoying retirement all the files and folders in the office are obsolete. I pity the poor recycling men today as our blue bin was stuffed full. I have had a bit of a clear out as well. All the baking and cooking equipment that ‘will come in useful one day’ has now gone to better homes. The challenge now, is not to fill the filing cabinet and kitchen cupboards with other things. This got me thinking, do you need to have a clear out of things that are worrying you, things that are taking prominence in your mind, things that are holding you back from a full relationship with God? Perhaps, I think he coming days, when you are not too busy, you could take time to have a little declutter of your heart and mind. Give over to God the things that are holding you back from fully serving him. Anger, feeling you have been hurt by someone, annoyance, complaining, criticising. Know again a true, deep, uncluttered relationship with Him again.
O the deep, deep love of Jesus, Vast, unmeasured, boundless, free. Rolling as a mighty ocean In its fullness over me.
