Gather up your baggage, it's time to clean up your life!

A friend of mine posted her devotional on Facebook a couple of days ago and it has been stuck in my mind since, I thought it was important to share this with others as I completely agree with her in so many ways..

God is a forward moving being. You can see that in all of His creation: from time and aging to the way we grow mentally, physically.. etc. Should we not be adding spiritually to that as well? What about in other successes? Job growth, finances, family relationships, etc. Why remain stagnant and fear growth (sometimes as though we don't deserve it, or don't even care for it), when the only perfect example for us wants us to GROW, prosper and flourish in the life He has given us....?

Selah - Holy Dissatisfaction

"There comes a time in every persons life were they must examine the context of their own lives. We must actively and intentionally look at where we've been, where we are and where we should be. Being sure of this, that the urging of God in Christian life should not ever be muted, ignored or overlooked. Being comfortable where we're at spiritually should never supersede being constantly desperate for the next level of who we are by Kingdom standards.

I think that the best picture I could use to describe this is the process of laundry. In cleaning a garment, neither the detergent nor the water have much to do with an item getting clean on their own or together.  Rather, it becomes the process of agitation that instigates a process of change for the item to become clean. If we would adopt a Holy dissatisfaction with just being where we're at and become unsettled in the mundane in hopes of being propelled into our true calling, everything we say we want to see would be within our sights and reach.

There is no rest in our sleeping, but true peace is found in becoming the fullness of who God created us to be. Psalm 119:45 says, "I walk about in freedom, for I have sought your precepts." If we are comfortable and not stirred to see the atmosphere of heaven in everything we seek to do, we will undoubtedly miss each burgeoning opportunity for God's will to come to pass in and through us."


  1. GOD BLESS YOU. It is a beautiful picture of spiritual growth, for a follower of Christ so important to led by Holy Spirit.
