Week 45: Loose Baggage

We are a strange breed… Most of us tend to want to hang on to everything…giving ourselves the typical pack-rat syndrome. We hang on to clothes, old notes, old acquaintances, and even things that bring stress into our lives. We have an issue with letting go. Period.

I know I do.

The majority of my life has been one of learning to let go and I’m in the midst of another season of letting go. Through this current stance, God is teaching me to let go, to trust Him and let Him take on this burden.

In reading my Bible this morning, I stumbled upon Psalm 25:2:

I trust in you, my God! Do not let me be disgraced, or let my enemies rejoice in my defeat.

The beautiful thing about letting go is that it frees us up to share our burdens with the body. We weren’t meant to go through it all alone.

Let us remember that God is the Alpha and Omega, the Author and the Finisher of our faith. We need to rely upon him for our every day spiritual walk as well as our earthly walk among men and unbelievers. When we show forth a Godly way of living, then we will be rewarded by God. He is a keeper of his blessed promises.
