What’s in your suitcase?
Regrets about the past, Anxiety about the future, To- do lists for the present?
Fear, Anger, Unforgiveness, Sadness, Apathy, Disappointments?
Cast away dreams, Broken promises, I can’ts and No’s?
The burdens in our suitcases tempt us to look for shortcuts.
Or to avoid big hills, rocky ground, and people.
Hands occupied, no longer able to lift heavenward in thanksgiving.
Eyes cast downward, backs aching from the strain.
If traveling to a foreign land, wouldn’t you enlist a guide?
There would be no fear in the capable hands of the one who knows the way.
The Heavenly Father is guiding us on this journey of the heart.
Walk toward the dawn. Home is ahead.
Check your luggage. You don’t need it. It will only weigh you down.
Leave it at the foot of the cross.
Your Father will provide.
Trust in Him. Do not fear.
“He said to them, “Take nothing for the journey, neither walking stick, nor sack, nor food, nor money, and let no one take a second tunic” Luke 9:3
I think there is not one believer who has not felt like this. Yet we persist, and go on, for the hope is ahead of us, in glory. If it were not for the Lord to help carry our burdens, we would not make it at all.
I like your words “for hope is ahead of us”. We all need to remind each other of this hope. Thank you and God bless.
I liked this post! This was just what I needed to hear : )
I am glad. God is good!
Thanks again. I imagine heaven is like going to the airport and not being allowed to take any luggage at all! We come just as we are and we get clothed in Jesus at the other end.
Yes, I like the imagery of the airport….since we are about to take flight! God bless you!
have you seen this one from The Skit Guys?
you might enjoy it.
blessings, and keep walking with Jesus. 🙂
Wow this is an awesome video by The Skit Guys! I had never heard of them. Thank you so much for sharing. God Bless you!
Thanks for looking at my blog! I like this post because it reminds me of that song Suitcases by Dara Mclean. It’s a good song but this is a great post! Thanks!
Yes I like that song as well…it probably was in the back of my head when I wrote this post. God bless you!
I love this post, the way you paint the picture of carrying our luggage. So often I leave mine at the feet of Jesus, then before I know it I am hauling it around all over again!
Oh yes I do that too! God bless you!
