It’s time you served notice …
A friend of mine has been struggling with certain issues for years. Finally tired of the struggle that keeps her constantly weary, she proclaimed a certain day would be “eviction day” — she was evicting the issues from their current residence in her mind and heart, sending them to the hands of God who could deal with them far better than she ever could.
I was impressed with the decision of my friend.
Whether in your past or still in your present, we’ve all needed to have an “eviction day,” a time when we finally take all of our fears, worries, anxieties, struggles, defeats — all the accumulated junk of living in this world — and evict them from our lives.
“Worry weighs a person down …” Proverbs 12:25a.
Why live that way when you have a far better option?
“6 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then
you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can
understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in
Christ Jesus,” Philippians 4:6-7.
“Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you,” 1 Peter 5:7.
What worldly junk do you still have in your life that you continue to wrestle with? Isn’t it time you have an eviction day?
