Baggage. You can’t be happy and filled with joy walking around carrying the baggage of your past. You have to forgive those people who have done you wrong. Why? By forgiving them you are cleansing your heart and making way for God to bless you. You forgive them and let go off the bitterness and rage and revenge in your heart. Put your trust in God that he saw what went down and that he will judge and justice will be served by God. Not one person who has ever done me wrong has gotten away with it. I let go and let God and in time God brought my enemies to justice. I forgave them all and let go. If not the memories, the bitterness, the rage would have consumed me and I would not have been able to function. You cannot be happy carrying around thoughts of revenge. And at the same time how can you ask God to forgive you for your sins, your evil thoughts when you are not forgiving people who did you wrong? Do you think you are better than God? You are not above God and it is hypercritical to ask for forgiveness and be holding grudges and anger in your heart so you have to let it go and let God. Also do you think whoever hurt you years ago or yesterday cares about you right now? No they don’t. They have moved on with their life and are happy. Meanwhile here you are carrying around negative energy and blocking your blessings. Stop the madness. And it takes energy to remember anything. It takes energy to recollect feelings, time and places. That’s energy you can be using to build up your walk with God. Energy you can use to make yourself a better person. Also so you can be free and at peace. Free like a butterfly.
So let go and let God.
Until next time, take care of yourself and stay special!!!
