This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.

Scripture reference: Hebrews 12:1 (NLT)


Today I am encouraging you to release those things that weigh you down into God’s hands.

It’s that time of the year again when we begin to resolve ourselves to doing things differently. Today I am challenging you that for every physical resolution you make, also make its spiritual counterpart.

For example, I made a resolution this New Year to lose some unwanted pounds. I also resolved that I would release into God’s hands those things that weigh me down emotionally and spiritually.

This reminds me of the time last year when I saw an old friend who I had not seen in a long while. I was shocked to see that she appeared much older than I expected her to. 

I soon remembered though that she had been through a challenging time, and it seemed as though she were wearing invisible bags of weary that kept her weighed down. When I walked away from her, my heart just ached.

Some of us may be carrying around baggage from situations that caused us hurt and pain two decades ago. The extra weight feels normal now because we’ve been carrying it around for so long.

Today you’re in a new year and a new decade, and God wants you to travel light. I want you to visualize yourself at the airport. Just as the skycap extends his hand to take your bags, so does God have His hand extended to you right now to take those things from you that have been weighing you down.

As you hold that vision, hold onto these words: “Let us strip off every weight that slows us down…and let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.” Hebrews 12:1 (NLT)
