We’re beginning a NEW series: BAGGAGE

We all travel. We all pack bags to carry stuff with us as we go.

We all live life. We ALL will pick up some baggage along the way.

Baggage is the excess from relational complications, life’s trials and emotional hiccups that exist as we navigate life. It’s the heartaches we experience. It’s the setbacks we encounter. It’s the emotional trauma we endure. If we don’t deal with things in a healthy way. If we don’t bring this ‘stuff’ to God for his healing touch, we can end up carrying this baggage.

As we travel through life, we’ll acquire some baggage and burdens that we think we need to carry with us. We either carry them because we wear them as a badge of our identity. We can end up carrying them because we can’t seem to picture what life would be like without them. Sometimes they can even create a false sense of security.

But whatever they are, wherever you picked them up – they’re heavy. They’re burdensome. They’re NOT life-giving.

They drain you, steal joy from you and can rob you of hope.

The question is: Do you want to get well? Do you want to let go and travel lighter?

The Scriptures point out the truth that God rescues us. Not just saving you and I for a ‘someday’ freedom, but so we might experience more and more freedom with Him NOW…

28 Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”  ~Matthew 11:28-30 (New Living Translation)

Live free. Travel light.

We want to unpack our baggage so we live more like that…
