My friend Annie at McGuffy’s Reader started a wonderful blog hop called Sparks with the intent to share an inspirational thought each Monday, and she’s invited us to join her. I think this is an awesome idea, and a great way to start the week!
I believe that every day is a new beginning, an opportunity to manifest the person God created you to be. In order to do this we must learn to love ourselves, our uniqueness is the gift we’ve been given. How we use it is up to us.
Just as the quote above says, we need to take stock of our lives and decide which things and people are good for us, and which hold us back or weigh us down. This is an ever evolving process, and what fit perfectly yesterday, may have served out its purpose and needs to be discarded today.
In some cases we are attached to things, people, and behaviors which were never part of what God intended for our lives, and it’s time to let go of those too.
Letting go isn’t always easy, but I can testify that for every unhealthy attachment you free yourself from, God will give you so much more that will lift you up and enhance your life journey.
Being willing to let go is one of the most misunderstood concepts of spiritual growth. It doesn’t mean you end up with less, it means you will end up with a life that is so much better, one you will love more than you can imagine.
Today… resolve to free yourself from that which is weighing you down. Fly free! ❤
Come and check out Sparks, find your inspiration for the week there, and maybe share something too!
Many of you are familiar with the “Thought for the Day” posts on my Facebook page that carry more messages of hope and encouragement. I post a new one each morning, drop by and check them out. 🙂
