Vintage Gwen Chapel-Delete The Trash

I do not have the fanciest cell phone there is.  The sd card and phone storage is an issue.  About everyone 2 months or so I'll get a message that says low phone storage and I'll have to delete all my text messages just so I can clear that message and be able to text.  Also apps are tricky, right now I have about 15 and unless a new one can go on the sd card then I'm pretty much at my limit.  I try to keep my photos cleaned out and just this week worked on my emails.  I have a hotmail and my gmail synced.  This past week the low phone storage came up again and it's a little aggravating!  I was needing to text someone concerning church stuff not wanting to call her while at work.  So I jumped on my gmail account to work on, oh almost 800 messages in the trash folder.  What you don't have this problem?
The trash folder.  It's contains messages I've deleted. So I'm done with them.  Mind you the majority of the emails pertain to my blog.... 
So as I was working I kept thinking "maybe I should take the time to really go through these in case I need to keep one." 
"No you don't have time for that!"
"But what if something important is in there!"
"You've deleted them, you're done with them!"
I went back and forth. And finally selected all and hit delete.  And the message cleared on my phone and I moved on with my day!
What about our lives? What stuff is there that we've taken in that yeah, we moved to the trash folder but it's not deleted yet because we think there might be something important, something of worth in it?  Really? Sounds like a lie to me!  Unfortunately we have to have a filter because of the trash that's out there but why let it just sit in the trash folder?  It's time to delete the trash!  And here's how...
Romans 12:2 Amplified Bible
"Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you]."
This is what I'll be working on and just might be my motto for a little while.

Be blessed!

Sometimes that happens to me with my drafts in my computer. The best way is to get rid of it completely and move on with life. Plus, it gives more room for improvement to creat more. It also you can have more storage :)
