baggage

How can you move when they’re weighing you down
What can you do when you’re tied to the ground, yeah
You carry your burdens, heavy like gravity
Just let them go now, there’s freedom in release

  • How do we move when our baggage…our burdens…our past…our present…our future is weighing us down?  We can’t move.  We can’t function.

You can’t run when you’re holding suitcases
It’s a new day throw away your mistakes and open up your heart
Lay down your guard, you don’t have to be afraid

  • Release.  Relinquish.  Let go.

Just breathe, your load can be lifted
There’s a better way when you know you’re forgiven
Open up your heart, lay down your guard
You don’t have to be afraid

  • Freedom.  Broken chains.  Ability to move and dance and run!

Can you imagine what it’s like to be free
Well, send those bags packing, they’re not what you need
Abandon your troubles by the side of the street
Just let them go now, believe me

How does our walk with God even take place when we are so bogged down with….

  • guilt.
  • inadequacy.
  • failure.
  • fears.
  • our past.
  • the mistakes we’ve made.
  • the lies we believe.

 

  • Satan has checked our bags.  He makes us pay to just carry them around…our own ‘stuff’ we pay dearly for!  agony.  discontent.  disappointment.  hurt.  shame.  guilt.
  • But, we serve the Baggage-Handler!  He takes those bags, and replaces them with Forgiveness.  Love.  Mercy.  Compassion.  Joy.  Peace.  Hope.

 

Since God cares for you, let Him carry all your burdens and worries. ~1 Peter 4:7 (the Voice)

There’s nothing holding you back now, just run

You can’t run when you’re holding suitcases
It’s a new day throw away your mistakes and open up your heart
Lay down your guard, you don’t have to be afraid

Just breathe, your load can be lifted
There’s a better way when you know you’re forgiven
Open up your heart, lay down your guard
You don’t have to be
You don’t have to be afraid
