Lightening Your Load: Repacking Your Bags for a Fuller Life
As we travel through life, it's too easy to pack more than we need.
I've found that I pack my life with too much stuff. My schedule is crammed with multiple to-do lists. Multitasking mania consumes me. My cabinets, closets, and garage are all full of stuff, yet I buy more. Unhealthy habits like procrastination and discontentment clutter my life. The clutter spills over into my spiritual life and crowds out God.
Yet He invites us to take on a fuller life with a lighter load. Find rest for your soul in this divine paradox.
