Getting rid of stuff I really don't need
Thursday, September 19, 2013
I cleaned out my work bag after I came in late this evening after working a 12 hour shift today. It was disgusting, down right gross. I can't believe the I let it get that bad and filled with stuff I didn't need to carry back and forth everyday. Lay aside all that weight, getting rid of stuff I really don't need.
The simple act of cleaning out my dirty work bag, a bag I have been dragging back and forth to work for weeks made me think of it as carrying extra burdens that we do not have to carry-all for naught. As I was pulling things out, I realized all this extra junk I had no business carrying around, just like all this extra weight, or taking up someone else's burdens. It was a light bulb moment. Living in the past, holding onto old grudges, burdens is not healthy, it ages a person and just a time waster.
Time for some internal cleansing, soothe my soul and really get down to basics of living the life as God so desire for me, a child of the King!
