Drop It

What is it you need to drop?


What grips your heart

and hurts you deep?


What stirs ungodly anger

and entitled resentment?


Don’t you know

that holding that thing tight

holds you tight?


It’s talons sink deep into your soul


Open your fist

and let it drop to the ground


then walk away

and don’t pick it up again



Find the freedom

of dropping the heavy


and clinging to God

with open hands

and open heart


– Susie Stewart


Banish bitterness, rage and anger, shouting and slander, and any and all malicious thoughts—these are poison.  Instead, be kind and compassionate. Graciously forgive one another just as God has forgiven you through the Anointed, our Liberating King.

– Ephesians 4:31-32 (VOICE)


I’m not there yet, nor have I become perfect; but I am charging on to gain anything and everything the Anointed One, Jesus, has in store for me—and nothing will stand in my way because He has grabbed me and won’t let me go.  Brothers and sisters, as I said, I know I have not arrived; but there’s one thing I am doing: I’m leaving my old life behind, putting everything on the line for this mission.  I am sprinting toward the only goal that counts: to cross the line, to win the prize, and to hear God’s call to resurrection life found exclusively in Jesus the Anointed.

– Philippians 3:12-14 (VOICE)


No test or temptation that comes your way is beyond the course of what others have had to face. All you need to remember is that God will never let you down; he’ll never let you be pushed past your limit; he’ll always be there to help you come through it.

– 1 Corinthians 10:13 (MSG)
