Making Room

Teresa Poucher

My brother decided to move back to Louisiana after 20 years. He paints and does carpentry. Can I tell you, we are prone to accumulate a lot of stuff? He has at least a dozen guitars as well as a bunch of tools. Guess what? We too are so blessed and have so many tools, we set up a workshop in my Mom’s garage. Since we encouraged my brother to move here and start over, we said he could move in with us.


  My goodness, what do I do with all that stuff?  It’s hard for some of us to let go of things, even if we don’t need them.  Organizing is work; it takes time and effort, but you are always glad you did it. Some things are just trash; others could be given away.  After all, we want to help and be a blessing.


  When Jesus came to this earth, there was no room in the inn. 


And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.” (Luke 2:7)


  He is the Lamb of God, so being born in a stable would have to be adequate for the time being. I don’t know about you, but I don’t think that is a good enough place for our Savior.  I want to prepare Him room, so I need to get rid of some things in my life.  There is some cleaning that needs to take place in this heart of mine.  I have got to get organized, as well prioritized.  He needs to come first; what an honor that the Savior would choose to come to live with me.  If I do this right, soon, I’ll go to his home. 

  Let’s make room.

In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” (John 14:2-3)

My day starts with a cup of good coffee and a talk with Jesus. I started walking with Jesus when I was eighteen. That was In March 1979. I have fought many battles. No I haven’t won them all, but I have learned how to not only survive but thrive. Let me share with you...
