Go now, a child of God. Choose well the road you take,
And the decisions you make. Keep in mind always that The God you serve continues to call to you, making you more and more every day into the faithful one God wants you to be.

God's Will week Eight

This past week the question was asked me, “What do you want?” So I’ve been evaluating stuff. Physical stuff, emotional stuff, and making real choices. My best friend told me, I do get to choose what is right for me and I don’t have to get anyone’s approval. Everything we own tells a story about who we are. By the way I have been throwing away stuff, there won’t be much left for someone to know who I am. I realized that the things I’ve been letting go of says who I used to be. I’m going through some changes. I watched a show called "Hoarders" and it is about people who have a real problem with letting go of stuff.

Today I heard a Christian song by Dara Maclean “Suitcases” and the chorus,

“You can't run when you're holding suitcases

It's a new day throw away your mistakes

and open up your heart

Lay down your guard, you don't have to be afraid.”

I am hoping that is what will happen when I get rid of all this baggage, I’ll be able to open up my heart a little more and let down my guard, this past week I feel like I’ve been putting up my guard more and more, but I think it’s because I don’t want anyone to see the mess of “stuff” I’ve been hoarding.

I think this is part of the process of this year without dating. I don’t need to add to my baggage, so staying away from relationships will be really helpful while I sort through the baggage I have from my marriage, and work on who I am.

John 14:3

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.

Dear Heavenly Father,

While you are busy preparing a place for me, prepare me, as well, for that place. You hold my hope for my tomorrows as I leave the past behind. Thank you for loving me enough to know that one day life won’t be a series of things I don’t choose for my life, but instead be full of what You- God, choose for me. I submit to Your will and the changes you are making in my life and in me. Amen.

  1. This was a beautiful post...and certainly very wise. I agree that we must throw away that emotional baggage that links us to an unhappy past.

    And yeah...you definitely can't run whilst holding those bags!

    I wish you much luck and happiness,
