Capsule for the Day

What would be your response if you found this inscription on your door "don't carry 2017 baggage into 2018"? Perhaps, you may have to pause for awhile... Think about the baggage you are carrying. Is It worth carrying? Is it weighing you down? Do you really want to keep carrying it?

Or could it be that we often don't know we are carrying baggage of all sorts of stuff; baggage that cripples and impedes our growth; baggage that steals our peace and makes us less and less who we are or can become? It's sad when we don't know our baggage let alone its weight and cost.

But ignorance isn't going to relieve us of our baggage. We have to retreat; examine our lives; face our "demons" and if possible part company with them. We can't keep carrying baggage that does us no good. We can't keep running the rat-race. We have to let go so that we can let God.
