  1. Love this raw and honest look at letting go! Thank you for the encouragement, Rachel! Visiting today from Suzie Eller’s #LiveFreeThursday

  2. I don’t even think I’m waiting until the New Year, I’ve been getting rid of some things. There are definitely ” Stuff ” I’d keep, but nothing is as valuable as your gifts or calling and He provides even better stuff. The right stuff. I hope your apartment is like those old Hollywood one, you can think about me in my one room as family fills up the house. God Bless and Merry Christmas.

      Great point, Rebecca, start letting go now. Sorry to disappoint, the apartment is newish. God Bless you too and Merry Christmas to you.

  3. Oh definitely Rachel! We need to let go of the baggage that we drag around with us – not only from year to year but from day to day.

  4. Your post reminds me of my favorite chapter of the Bible, Philippians 3, particularly where Paul shares that he forgets what is behind him, choosing instead to focus on what’s ahead of him. We learn so much from the past, and looking back on God’s faithfulness inspires deeper trust in Him. But dwelling in the past bogs us down and distracts us from the present! Thanks so much for sharing with us at Grace & Truth!

      Great points, Jennifer. The Bible teaches us so much about how to handle the past, present and future.

  5. Two things I regret from the past year: not standing up for myself, and letting my fears stand in the way of progress. I’m letting that baggage go as I press forward into 2017. Your post is timely! Visiting from #livefreethursday.

  6. Oh, my goodness! Trying to live today’s life with yesterday’s stuff! That’s such a great metaphor for why so many of us feel bogged down in our spiritual life. Thanks for putting that picture in my head. So much to ponder.
