Are you all as busy as I am with the holiday season? It’s all so fun: shopping and decorating and baking and all of that good stuff! But I had a little ‘moment’ today that I thought I’d share.
I had gotten off of work relatively early for a change today and was running errands – a quick stop at a few stores as well as the post office. At one of my stops, I swiftly parked and then grabbed up my car keys, cell phone, and purse. With a free hand I pulled on the lever to open my car door and as I turned to stick my legs out the door and make a quick dash through the cold air to the store … ugh! … oomph … I was stuck!
Folks, it is hard to get out of your vehicle with your seatbelt securely fastened!
I quickly sat back, restrained in my seat as I already was, and just giggled.
It made me think 🙂
So many times we are anxious to make a change, to get somewhere, to start anew, to change things up a bit, to give up an old bad habit, or to simply start over. For any of those things to take place, you have to give up the old ways … let go of the past! Ha ha. It’s the first big step – letting go and unfastening yourself from the person, place, or thing that you want to change but are so scared to give up.
You’ll never win the race if you keep your shoes stuck in the running block.
Just something to think about … especially with the New Year fast approaching and everyone already thinking of turning over new leafs or making new positive changes.
Don’t forget to let go of the old stuff.
And don’t forget to unbuckle your seatbelt!
I hope you are all having a holly jolly Christmas Season … think of it as a big birthday celebration 🙂
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
