First of all…
And now, on with the program.
My first assignment for the new year is to RELEASE all the baggage, hang-ups, issues, etc., that have been dogging me for the last year. I chose to ritualistically demonstrate this release with the use of FIRE. I filled index cards with all the things that have been keeping me awake at night, causing me stress, and generally making me miserable, and torched them. No sense in starting a new year with a lot of old junk, right? It was cathartic.
|Just one of many…|
I know I’ll have to ward off that all too human tendency to pick up those old bags again, but with my little ritual complete, I have a tangible focal point on which to place my faith and say, “I released that to God and I am free.”
“Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.”1 Peter 5:7
