Someone hurt me pretty bad a couple days ago. My cousin sent this to me to lift my spirits and it worked. I'm presenting it to you just in case you are in need of a pep talk like I did. If the spirit hits you to read it twice, by all means help yourself. We all need to know that hurt is going to come but by the grace of God it will not last for long. Give your troubles over to Him and then sit back and watch the blessings flow.
"Let it go" by T. D. Jakes
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, or 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 that 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 .LET IT GO!!!
If you are holding on to past hurts and pains..LET IT GO!!!
If someone can't treat you right, love you back, and see your worth...LET IT GO!!!
If someone has angered you ... LET IT GO!!!
If you are holding on to some thoughts of evil and revenge ...LET IT GO!!!
If you are involved in a wrong relationship or addiction. LET IT GO!!!
If you are holding on to a job that no longer meets your needs or talents... LET IT GO!!!
If you have a bad attitude...LET IT GO!!!
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 IT GO!!!
Let the past be the past. Forget the former things.
GOD is doing a New Thing for this New Year!!! LET IT GO!!!
Get Right or Get Left -- think about it, and then LET IT GO!!!
