"Silently and imperceptibly, as we work or sleep, we grow strong or we grow weak; and at last some crisis shows us what we have become"
(B. F. Westcott).

This is true in every area of life

Excess Baggage

Excess Baggage
I’ve recently begun noticing some excess baggage in my life. The advice, “It will only get harder to lose as time goes on.” is beginning to ring true. In an effort to trim down some of the excess burden & weight & people problems in my life I’ve stayed away from the problem makers & I feel happier!

there have been times that my life is full of excess baggage that holds me down, draws me to additional bad habits and makes me feel bad about being me. Conversations left unsaid that continue to burn inside, past relationships that still hurt because they haven’t been fully addressed and forgiven, mistakes made years ago that continue to haunt me because of gossip or guilt.

It’s a new year – a fresh year. Rather than holding myself back with all this excess baggage, I’m starting a new “diet” plan. Remembering God’s ultimate forgiveness and with his help, I will begin addressing this excess and releasing it and ridding my life from the source of the problems After all, I have plenty of wonderful things to focus my energy on right now, including all the people I love & who love me back.
