Stressed, fractured, spent, weary, frustrated, maxed-out, overwhelmed.
These are the kind of words that describe so many folks that I meet. We throw around “how are you?” And “how you doing”? But we really just want to know that somebody actually cares. I often resonate with those words . And maybe you do too. If so, lay all that stress and fret down. Just Let it Go! I know – easier said than done! I offer that advice like I actually lay my junk down…Well, I don’t! I worry and stress and allow expectations to eat at me until I actually try to perform like a circus animal and the crowd loves it when I’m “ON.”
Here’s the deal: Do you really believe that the Divine gives a hoot about your mundane and often weird life? The answer, in case you didn’t know, is – You bet He does! He cares about the entirety of you. How you act, react, dress, eat, rest, dance, play and whatever matters to you.
Get this – No really – Get this – Romans 8:17: And since we are his children, we are his heirs. In fact, together with Christ, we are heirs of God’s glory. But if we are to share his glory, we must also share his suffering.
Dude! You and me – Every Follower of Jesus! WE ARE CHILDREN OF THE MOST HIGH GOD! We have been made in His image. We are image bearers of THE MOST HIGH GOD!
At some point, we must realize that as Kids of the Divine, we have access to the Heavenlies. Pick your head up! Put your chest out! Live, Lead and Love like the Child of God that you are!
Let all that other junk go. You are receiving the inheritance of the King. When things have you down, realize that it is just a season! When you feel alone and spent, Sing His name, pray like you mean it, and love your guts out!
Let Your Garbage Go – Let it Go – and Pick Up Your Head. You are CHILDREN OF THE MOST HIGH GOD – LIVE LIKE IT!
