Just as a home can begin to feel cluttered when filled with belongings that no longer serve a purpose, my inner life can become a shambles of outgrown thoughts and feelings.
My mind may feel jumbled when tangled with obsolete beliefs. My heart may feel heavy when clogged with old resentments and hurts.
Today I take an inventory of what I think and how I feel and release what no longer serves my mind and heart. Gently and compassionately, I release thoughts and beliefs that no longer match my understanding of Truth. I let go of feelings of fear, anger, and bitterness that keep me from knowing the forgiving and comforting love of God. As I release, I create space for new thoughts and feelings that heal and bless me.
So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new!—2 Corinthians 5:17
