Giving Up Everything That’s Weighing You Down

 In Emily Cummins

Have you ever felt heavy? Heavy with…
emotions &
frustrations &
expectations &
disappointments &
unanswered questions &
the unknown &
and… and… and…
the list could go on!

As I look back on this week & this season, I find myself thinking: we can drown in the heavy list of “ands”. There are SO MANY things fighting to weigh us down. There are so many things that fought to weigh me down this week! I’m learning the only way to fly, to thrive, to flourish, to become is to LET IT ALL GO. I’m letting the heavy “ands” go & replacing them with…
truth &
thankfulness &
talking to God &
hope &
praising my way through &
trusting Him with every step.

Easier said than done? Absolutely! Thankful for a tribe of warriors who remind me daily to give up all those things trying to weigh me down, to trust Jesus with everything in me, & to become who God made me to be with all I’ve got.

Warrior friend, what do you need to let go? What do you need to replace it with instead? Of all the things in this life I don’t know, one thing I am SURE of: my Hope is anchored in Christ alone. God is good & He can be trusted. I’m rooted in that. And you can be too. If you don’t know Jesus personally, DM me… I’d love to introduce you. And if you already have a relationship with Him, talk to Him right now, wherever you are. It’s in our freedom in Him we can FLY. ?

“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, & do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.” Galatians‬ ‭5:1‬

Drop a ? if this resonates with you too today. ⤵️ Cheering you on big time, warrior friend! ??
