Turning it over...

This picture was a year old last November. I hadn't been to church in a long time. This is a skit about turning the suitcases full of guilt, shame, and what I'll call defects of character over to God. This actor was hesitant to leave her baggage there. She told God she had been holding onto them for so long, she wouldn't know how she could live without her baggage. I could relate. Now, thanks to AA, I know I can give my luggage to my HP. It's safer there than with any airlines I can think of...


If we ask, God will certainly forgive our derelictions. But in no case does He render us white as snow and keep us that way without our cooperation. That is something we are supposed to be willing to work toward ourselves. He asks only that we try as best we know how to make progress in the building of character.

Sometimes, I think I could have opened a Samsonite store with all the baggage I brought.
LOL
But I've let go of most of it. Most of it.

I like the image of handing a suitcase to God. I try to store all those things in this lil ole pea head because they come in very handy at times.

Happy Monday!

Amen!

I am lighter and free-er when I leave my luggage at the Gates.

Great Stuff!
