“EMPTY YOUR BOWL OF YESTERDAY’S RICE”

    “EMPTY YOUR BOWL OF YESTERDAY’S RICE”

    The above caption is from a short antidote written by Robert Holden.   I use it frequently for my morning meditation as well as an opening for one of my Mission presentations.

    At times, upon reflection and prayer, I need to let go of things that I am carrying around – baggage, anxieties, my distress, my unhappiness.

    What am I holding on to from the past that I need ‘to empty out of myself’ and move forward with my life and my faith?

    Putting things into God’s hands.   Another great caption that I use often: “The world has finished with my past, if I have.”
