DID YOU KNOW? #32 LETTING GO?
You can only lose what you cling too. Buddha
Did You Know hanging around the people who make us feel good about ourselves, and those who have proven to be trustworthy are the ones on our team? The ones we can call on when we have an idea and they are willing to support our dreams. First, we have to start with letting go of those who always hurt us.
If someone keeps hurting you love them at a distance.
The best feeling you can ever have is to lose the attachment you have towards someone who is hurting you and that includes the ones who have the information they know can drop you to your knees: Your mother, father, sister or brother, friends, anyone and everyone who is toxic to your success, and especially with your Relationship with God.
And a man’s foe shall be they of his own household. He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me: He that findeth is life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it. Matthew 10:36-39 KJV
Don’t get it twisted, we’re not talking about Love Only God, He tell us to love ourselves, and neighbors. We are talking about the 1st Comment; Thou shall have no other God before me. And we all know, loving a mortal person more than God can be as bad as money being the god we put before some mothers and fathers.
Quit begging others to Love God and to go to church while they’re trying to convince you not to. You can’t save anyone, you can only ask while trying to lead them in the right direction as long as you don’t lose your own way. Go Alone when the answer is no. There are Christians just waiting for you to come through the doors, and Jesus’ hands are outstretched and longing to embrace your Future with Him. Let nothing stop you, it’s your life and your relationship.
Did you know the Bible says in 1st Corinthians 15:33; Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.”
FYI: You’ll know the character of a person and how they feel about you when you wake up and accept the fact that some are constantly putting you down.
One way to be sure is to ask yourself are others responding to your wanting a better life with negative comments whenever you tell them about your goals? Are they challenging your mental abilities claiming, you’re not smart enough? Are those calling themselves friend happy with themselves? Do they understand there is always room for improvement and asking for a little help is not a sign of weakness?
Friends will try to help mold us to be that great person we desire, not those that try to undermine us.
Don’t jeopardize your dignity and self-respect by trying to make someone accept, love and appreciate you when they have proven that they are incapable of doing so. Marc Chernoff
Most times we feel never giving up on love ones is our only option, but we have to realize that sometimes our strongest efforts can result in failure. It just wasn’t meant to be. And it was never meant to be that those we love, walk all over us for trying.
It’s better to walk with Jesus Christ than to walk with someone trying to crush Our Spirit. Stop wasting time on things or people who don’t have your best interest at heart. Everyone is not about God, and it’s sad to know they are lost and work for You Know Who, in an effort to keep us down. Trust me on this one; The Devil don’t have a problem with anyone, man, woman or your own child delivering you to him.
I know letting go of someone we love who is hurting us can be difficult because of a long history with them, but just so you know: The only thing harder than letting go is holding on, which happens to be a habit, a Bad Habit, in some cases. (Who’s in Control? 11/11/2016)
It seems as if when others walk out of our life they can move on so easily while we suffer the lost. You have no choice but to let them go since they have already left. Did you know, your future is with those who remain?
Letting go and forgiveness will lead us back to the life we were supposed to have through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Your only enemy is fear, and the only thing you will lose is something unnecessary. Find a way through Christ to shake it off, and remember if there is no good reason to stay, that’s a good reason to leave.
There are lots and lots of thing we can let go of so I want to share one with you that am putting the boot to right now. I am too old to die young, so am letting that go. 🙂
Thank you, Lord, for giving us the strength to move on and to Shake the Devil Off. It is in Jesus name that we pray and give praise. Amen!
