Release toxins.

Release frustration.

Release words.

Release hope.

Releasing is setting free – a freeing exercise on many levels. It opens up space in my brain when I release the grip of frustration, because I am the one allowing it. When I absorb toxins from the behavior of other people, they are not bothered by it, I am. So I consciously release that toxic input from my brain.

As I write, I am releasing words long stored in me. Thankfully I have many vehicles for that release – too many sometimes. But the overriding goal in my words is to release hope. To bring glory to the Almighty God who gives me life… who has given me this season of writing… who has given me a part to play in HIS story. Sometimes the script is just for me, other times it is released for the world to see.

What will you release today?
