Lost Baggage

On a trip, lost baggage must be a huge headache. I don’t travel much by plane, but I’ve heard more than one story about delays, missed connections, and misdirected luggage. I can’t imagine it’s fun having to replace everything you need once you arrive at your destination. It would certainly disrupt the enjoyment and relaxation you were hoping for.

Travel to a sunny resort is one thing; the inner journey is quite another. Due of a series of events over the past week, I feel like I’ve dropped off a huge load of baggage I didn’t even realize I was carrying. What a blessing! I’ve been able to patch up some disrupted friendships, and it feels like a huge weight has been taken away. It’s amazing how we can fool ourselves into thinking all is well, when it really isn’t, or that we’ve moved on, when we really haven’t, so I’m very thankful that circumstances came together to allow these loose ends to be tied up. Some might call it coincidence, but I believe too many things had to work together to bring this about, so I’m going to call it an answered prayer. In this case, lost baggage is a wonderful thing! I don’t plan on trying to find it again!

  1. On life’s journey we pick up some baggage consciously, some without being aware we’ve done it, and sometimes it just gets piled on to us. It’s great to be able to unpack, unload and toss away some our bags.
    Jesus offers these words:
    “Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly” (Matthew 11:29-30)

    • So true. This baggage was pretty much of my own doing, so to a certain degree, I felt resigned to having to drag it around. I couldn’t quite let it go, even while I didn’t fully admit that I was still carrying it. That’s why it was such a relief to have a chance to revisit the situation. Praying certainly helped along the way, too.
