3 John 1:2 // “Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul.”

You are only as healthy as your soul.

The baggage I hold influences the quality of my soul.

Hebrews 12:1 (ESV) // “Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us…”

Where Can Baggage Come From?

  • Unfulfilled Expectations
  • Untreated Pain
  • Unhealthy View of Self
  • Unrepentant Sin

How Do I Get Rid Of Baggage?

  • Look at It
    • Psalm 32:5 (ESV) // “I acknowledged my sin to you, and I did not cover my iniquity; I said, ‘I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,’ and you forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah.”
    • The only baggage that can’t be dealt with is unacknowledged baggage.
  • Know You’re Not Alone
    • Romans 3:23 (ESV) // “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God…”
  • Leave it with Jesus
    • John 3:16 (ESV) // “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.”
    • Psalm 23:3 (ESV) //He restores my soul…”
