#1wordwednesday / good {RIDDANCE}

the daily Starr blog Starr haigler 8

This free devotional from the Bible App is rocking my world, in a good way.

The More of Less: A Guide to Less Stuff and More Joy by Joshua Becker

Now, if there ever was a devotional written for Starr Haigler – THIS IS IT!

The very first day got to me:

Did you catch that one line?

“Not only are my possessions not bringing happiness into my life, they are actually distracting me from the things that do!”

YESSSSS

Later on in the devotional, this part absolutely stopped me in my tracks:

“It’s about space that has been opened up to make room for new possibilities. It’s “good RIDDANCE” because it clears away obstacles to the lives that we want to live and that God wants us to live.”

I can’t tell you how much meaning these two sentences have for me and the place God has me right now.

It’s more than the stuff in our home.

It’s soooo much more, y’all.

God is calling me to say good {RIDDANCE} to all those things that hinder me and entangle me and keep me distracted from the race that has been marked out for me.

Admitting it’s time to say goodbye and good {RIDDANCE} to things in your life, walking away and starting a new adventure…anyone out there particularly like doing that???

NOT me.

It’s scary. It’s down right hard.

It’s necessary.

We have a choice – follow the clues God so graciously leaves in our path, or do our own thing, our own way and miss the race.

What is God calling you to say good {RIDDANCE} to in your own life?

Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Let’s step out in scary faith together, friend.
