Let it go, my friend

Letting it go.

There are people who can walk away from you.
And hear me when I tell you this! When people can walk
Away from you: let them walk.
I don’t want you to try to talk another person into staying with you,
Loving you, calling you, caring about you, coming to see you,
Staying attached to you.
I mean hang up the phone.
When people can walk away from you let them walk.
Your destiny is never tied to anybody that left.
The Bible said that, they came out from us that it might
Be made manifest that they were not for us.
For had they been of us, no doubt they
Would have continued with us. [1 John 2:19]
People leave you because they are not joined to you.
And if they are not joined to you, you can’t make them stay.
Let them go.
And it doesn’t mean that they are a bad person it just means
That their part in the story is over. And you’ve got
To know when people’s part in your story is over so that you
Don’t keep trying to raise the dead.
You’ve got to know when it’s dead.
You’ve got to know when it’s over. Let me tell you something.
I’ve got the gift of good-bye. It’s the tenth spiritual gift,
I believe in good-bye. It’s not that I’m hateful,
it’s that I’m faithful, and I know whatever God
Means for me to have He’ll give it to me.
And if it takes too much sweat I don’t need it.
Stop begging people to stay.
Let them go!!
If you are holding on to something that doesn’t belong to you
And was never intended for your life, then you need to……
If you are holding on to past hurts and pains ……
If someone can’t treat you right, love you back,
And see your worth…..
If someone has angered you,
If you are holding on to some thoughts of evil and revenge……
If you are involved in a wrong relationship or addiction……
If you are holding on to a job that no longer meets
Your needs or talents
If you have a bad attitude…….
If you keep judging others to make yourself feel better……
If you’re stuck in the past and God is trying to take
You to a new level in Him……..
If you are struggling with the healing of a broken relationship…….
If you keep trying to help someone who won’t even
Try to help themselves……
If you’re feeling depressed and stressed ………
If there is a particular situation that you are so used to
Handling yourself and God is saying
“take your hands off of it,” then you need to……
Let the past be the past. Forget the former things.
GOD is doing a new thing for this New Year!
Get Right or Get Left .. Think about it, and then,
“The Battle is the Lord’s!”

-T.D. Jakes

    Wow! Thank you so much for sharing this thoughts. It literally made me to stop and think for a few minutes. And yes! you are right. I hope letting go is just easy as holding on. But I trust God that He will always show up everytime I need Him. This article is a great reminder. God Bless you.

    This post was for me. It is so true about letting go of things in your life that are getting you down and people as well. Thanks for this. I am going to reblog this if its ok with you?

    Hi Savannah, thank you for visiting my blog. I really like this post. I am struggling with someone who has walked away, except it is not so easy to let go as it is my daughter. I know it is all in the Lord’s hands and I rest in that but it still hurts a lot as it is impossible to forget your own flesh and blood. I am brand-spankin-new at blogging and could use any blogging advice you have to offer. Is it ok if I share this on my blog?

      Hi there :) I am sorry to hear you are going through this situation. I will keep you in my prayers, literally. Right after I am done writing this, I am going to take a pause and pray :) God has a reason as to why you are going through this. Grab onto His hands, take that grip tightly and don’t let go, something good is going to come out of this. What satan means for evil. . .God always means for good. genesis 50:20. Keep holding on, and know that you are not alone.
      My blog is meant to inspire. . .anything is for sharing. So yes, you may share it! I am probably going to make it known that people who visit can share things from here, because you are not the first person who has asked this!

      Only advice I can offer is besides making your blog ‘your own’, always be responsive with your readers! It is a joy to actually converse with them and let them know that you read their words that they take the time to write!

    We should never let someone else draw us into bondage. We belong to Christ and he is the only master we should answer to. Having said that, the Word does tell us there are situations we need to strive and pursue and pray fervently for and not just walk away from (like marriage and the lifetime commitment, it takes work along with love to keep the bond strong) BUT in this you are right, if it is us that is being dragged an opposite way than toward God, we have to listen to God’s Spirit when he says come away.
    I can tell from the first blog I read of yours, you are searching and growing and I pray it continues throughout your life in Christ.


    • Savannah Hardcastle

      Thank you. :) I will never ever stop growing. I pray that no Christian ever stops growing and learning about our savior Jesus Christ. Their is just too much to know and learn, how could one possibly know it all.

    Thank you for sharing this. You are right, I think we can all relate, whether someone has dropped us out of the blue, or we have felt called to end a relationship with a once-special friend. I don’t think any of us get out of this life without some serious pain in this regard, at some point.
