Some people keep running into the same problems because they continue to carry the same problems… Let it go.
If it seems like trouble follows you everywhere you go, then you might want to check your baggage. IJS…
So, where is this “baggage” stored? It’s stored in your mind. Everything we do, begins with our mind. This is why it’s so important to have the right mindset. A free mindset, that is not bound by past experiences, present situations or future uncertainties. We should have a focused mindset. A mindset that’s focused above and not beneath (see Colossians 3:2).
Some of the baggage we’re carrying around is not necessary for our journey, it’s dead weight and is only weighing us down. Too much baggage will not only slow you down, but it will stop you! So, you must learn to pack light and choose what you pack, wisely. Some life experiences needs to be packed for wisdom and strength. The experiences that leaves you fearful, bitter, weak and confused, has to go!
2 Timothy 1:7, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” Thanks to God, our Father, we have every tool we need to live a purposeful life. There’s no need for extra baggage, especially the kind of baggage that keeps us stagnant while the world around us continues to move.
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
It’s time to throw off the baggage that’s keeping you from running YOUR race. The past has served its purpose, now it’s time to walk in purpose! For more insight, get your copy of my book, “Betrayed with a kiss,” by clicking the link below… ⬇️⬇️⬇️
