It seems God is telling me loud and clear, through a number of sources, it’s time to release a whole lot of old baggage so I have space for the new things He is bringing into my life. Now if only it were as easily done as said. (Or written.)
I admit I’m a pack rat. I hang onto things, just in case they might be useful in the future or because I’ve attached sentimental value to them. I hang onto the past, even when it only serves to block my present and future. I hang onto people and relationships, even when they’ve grown limiting and unhealthy. And I really don’t like to let go.
But letting go of what’s unhealthy and unnecessary is exactly what God is calling me to do. He assures me He will provide everything I need, when I need it. I need only trust in His perfect timing.
I know I have trust issues. I find it hard to stand on faith, never mind step forward in it. Still, I know God will be with me every step of the way. He’ll guide me through this. All I have to do is allow Him to.
Speaking of release, I currently have a short story available for here for free until tomorrow when the next one goes up. You can find the other free short stories by scrolling to the bottom of the page and clicking on the cover pictures.
