Living Life Divinely!

Running to Baggage Claim - Why do Christians Carry So Much Junk?
We are always carrying around a lot of baggage in life WHY? It is unthinkable, but yet we are carrying around our prize baggage like it's in a Louis Vuitton suitcase. When I think about the weight of luggage and how annoying it is to carry around the airport, why would we want to do that with our daily lives. Some of us look so weighted down, because we carry the imprints in our hearts and store up all the bad relationships, dysfunctional homes, and inability to manage our finances. These are deadly combinations to keep you in bondage. How can we identify that we are carrying the baggage of life around.
Here is what the Lord gave me:
1. Repeating the cycles and previous mistakes.
2. Inability to complete anything, stagnation!
3. Constantly live in the past.
4. Never analyzes and accepts responsibility for your actions.
What do we need to do:
1. Break the cycle
2. Plan and Implement plan to completion
3. Kick out the past...out with the old and in with the new!
4. Always do an introspective check and take responsibility and correct your actions when needed.
It's time to check the baggage at the alter and walk into freedom!

Scriptures to meditate on:
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore if any man [be] in Christ, [he is] a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
And no man putteth new wine into old bottles: else the new wine doth burst the bottles, and the wine is spilled, and the bottles will be marred: but new wine must be put into new bottles.
Come unto me, all [ye] that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
For my yoke [is] easy, and my burden is light.
But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of [that] bread, and drink of [that] cup.
