Revelation #3: Pack it Up

"All my bags are packed and I am ready to go"~

the words from the song

I'm Leaving on a Jet Plane

are playing in my head as

my family is leaving our

Christmas Vacation in Hawaii


Everything is packed,

but what am I leaving behind?

Just because I am

on a

beautiful island

doesn't mean that everything is perfect, 

because I still have to deal with me.

The me inside

that fights against 

who God made me to be.

So God did a work in my heart



to me 

some stuff that I have to leave behind, 

to not take home with me. 

All my bags are packed

and I  am leaving pieces of Joni 

behind that get in the way of

living  the abundant life that 

Jesus has come to bring,

so that 

you & I 

can experience

the fruit 

as a 

Child of the King. 

I have exchanged my baggage for 



reveal to me

who God wants me to be.

Has God revealed to you anything 

that you need to 

Put Off~

Let Go ~

in any of the moments

of a minute ago

an hour ago

a day ago

a month ago

a year ago?

All my bags are packed

All your bags are packed

and am leaving behind


Let's make 

Revelation #3~

Letting Go ~

Change every 


into a 

New Moment

filled with 


Peace that transcends all understanding~ Philippians 4:7


"let us throw off everything that hinders

and the sin that so easily entangles.

And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us

 fixing our eyes on


the Pioneer and Perfecter of faith.

For the joy set before


He endured the cross,

scorning its shame, 

and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Consider Him

who endured such opposition from sinners,

so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.

Hebrews 12:1-3
