Today I listened to a meditation that focused on dying to self. The message was about our need to allow parts of ourselves to “die”. Perhaps bad habits, thoughts, ways we treat others, burdens we carry,..etc. We need to let go of the things that are not of God – not blessing us or others. And it is important not to put our focus on ourselves all the time, wondering or worrying what is in it for me. Once those traits “die”, Jesus can bring new life to those empty spaces, new Resurrection. I gave that a lot of contemplation as I realized things that I need to let go of. It is scary, yet freeing.
I Found God today realizing the need to allow certain things about me to “die” to be raised to new life.
