Drop that junk!!

Hey everyone,

I am super excited about this new series that we are starting tonight. I have a critical few weeks planned out that will cover some of the baggage that we carry and what it does to us spiritually. When we go through our daily life, what are we carrying around that is keeping the joy of the Lord from shining through? I know when I get stressed or anxious, I feel like a load is on my back. Let me give you an example, if I gave you five large duffle bags to carry with both hands that weigh 20 lbs each. Then threw one hundred $1 bills in the air and then told you that whatever you catch you can keep. The weight of the bags would keep you from getting the full $100, therefor you can’t enjoy it all, only a little bit. That’s how it is with the weight of sin and brokenness (baggage) in our life, we keep hanging on to the stuff that is weighing us down and keeping us from having the joy and peace that the Lord gives us. If you just give it all over to Him and surrender it all you can enjoy everything that God has put in our life. Have a great afternoon and I am looking forward to tonight and the next several weeks.

Invite a friend!!
