And where are you taking it?  What are you doing with all THE JUNK IN YOUR TRUNK?  To whom are you trying to throw it to, at … and for what REASON?  Why are you trying so hard to carry YOU AND YOUR WAYS with you to get to THIS JESUS DESTINATION?  Why don’t you THROW “THE YOU IN YOU” OVERBOARD and lighten this load?  Why don’t you STOP ROCKING THE BOAT?  Why don’t you LET GO OF THE MESS AND BE BLESSED?  WHAT ARE YOU PACKING?  Leave it where it is and TAKE THE JOURNEY WITHOUT IT… Try SMOOTH-SAILING IN JESUS for a while.  Try CONTENTMENT through the turbulence.  EXPERIENCE the difference.

So, we say we’re LIVING FOR JESUS?  Whose AGENDA then do you FOLLOW?  We say WHAT CAN WASH AWAY MY SINS … NOTHING BUT THE BLOOD OF JESUS!!!  Well, ALLOW HIM to wash them away, ALLOW HIM to throw the baggage overboard that is not necessary for this journey.  You can’t take them with you. LET GO OF YOU!  So you say HE CAN MAKE ME WHOLE AGAIN?  Well, ALLOW HIM to do just that.  Stop depending on people to complete you … BE MADE WHOLE IN HIM!  Stop allowing people to hinder your walk with JESUS.

Why do we try so hard to please people and not JESUS?  Don’t we realize yet that it’s much easier to SATISFY JESUS?  Don’t we understand yet that HE WILL CHANGE ALL THAT NEEDS CHANGING when we GIVE OURSELVES AWAY to Him? 

For you will be treated as you treat others. The standard you use in judging is the standard by which you will be judged.  “And why worry about a speck in your friend’s eye when you have a log in your own?  How can you think of saying to your friend, ‘Let me help you get rid of that speck in your eye,’ when you can’t see past the log in your own eye?”   (Matthew 7:2-4)

People will see every imperfection in you and never see the imperfections within themselves. You already know that so why are you getting so upset?  They will pick and pick and pick and pick until they can’t pick anymore.  And as they are picking and you’re trying to “CHANGE for them”, you realize that they really didn’t care about you in the first place. You realize that they wanted something they could mold.  You realize that they are not really nice people after all, that the JESUS in them is not the JESUS that you desire to know.  You realize that the JESUS in them has been distorted, that’s it’s really not JESUS at all, it’s PRIDE AND SELFISHNESS.  You realize IT’S JUST A MASK!!!   Will the real person please STAND UP?

Whatever it is that you’ve packed and brought along all your life, whatever it is that’s slowing you down, whatever it is that needs to go … LET IT GO!  God wants to clean you up so HE CAN USE YOU.  He wants to use the baggage that you’ve held onto all these years as TESTIMONIES so to do that you have to make it through the tests.  You have to be WILLING TO LET GO so He can throw it overboard.  LET IT GO today saints and LIGHTEN THE CARGO so your ship can continue sailing.  LET IT GO and TRULY LIVE!  Whatever it is you’ve packed, time for some NEW CLOTHING, time to DRESS UP IN JESUS.  He’s EVERYTHING YOU NEED.  Say to Him … throw it overboard Lord … throw it all overboard!!!!!!

What are you packing?  It’s not needed … LET IT GO!  Tell Him to HAVE HIS WAY IN YOUR LIFE …  TRY JESUS!  You’ll never want to return …

WHAT ARE YOU PACKING? … and do you “think” you need it?
