LET IT GO BY T. D JAKES. A MUST READ

missmybabies started this conversation
LET THEM GO! BY BISHOP T.D. JAKES....
Current mood:  blessed
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 . . . . . . . .

LET IT GO!!!

If you are holding on to past hurts and pains . . . . . . . . .

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 you keep judging others to make yourself feel better . . . . . . . .

LET IT GO!!!

If you're stuck in the past and God is trying to take you to a new level in Him . . . . . . . .

LET IT GO!!!

If you are struggling with the healing of a broken relationship . . . . . . . .

LET IT GO!!!

If you keep trying to help someone who won't even try to help themselves . . . . . . . .

LET IT GO!!!

If you're feeling depressed and stressed . . . . . . . .

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 2007!!!

LET IT GO!!!

Get Right or Get Left. think about it, and then . . . . . . . .

LET IT GO!!!

Tip32, you are not alone even though it feels that way. I have been there; can't eat, can't sleep, when morning comes and you open your eyes it seems like a dream until your heart sinks once you realize this is really happening. TRUST AND BELIEVE ME when I tell you even though it hurts YOU WILL NOT DIE from this! At some point you have to love yourself enough to know you ARE worth more than allowing someone to disrespect you and STEAL your joy. I journal ed my feelings. I wrote out what I wanted for myself in my life and then I tried to occupy my time by accomplishing each thing one by one. Laugh with your children, go to the park, walk. Watch and listen to people or music that will uplift you. KEEP A GRATITUDE JOURNAL. Be thankful you are alive your children are healthy and pray throughout the day for peace of mind and guidance. GOD is with you even though he seems far away!

If he doesn't want to be with you, it may be a blessing. It is very hard to let go because the kids love him. One thing you can do is talk to a counselor if you can find one. In the meantime, ask God to show you how you can best take care of yourself. You should think of filling this void with loving yourself. Your children will know that you are falling apart because of this man and that is not good for them. Your life and your happiness does not depend on this man. It only feels that way now. What specifically can you do to begin loving yourself? Ask God to show you and pray for guidance. Usually, when we have to let go of something, it is because God has a better idea. One day you will look back and thank God that this man left you because you will be so much happier.

I am currently in a predicament. I have been in a relationship with a man for 6months. My kids love him. There has been outside issues he refuses to address . I just wanted him to communicate with me. I did nothing wrong. He left and moved in with his mom and he does not want to come back. Hes showing little concern about how I feel. But he still wanted a relationship. He dumped me on his birthday with no explaination at all. I love him. And I have been crying all week, can't sleep, I've been praying hard to move on. I dont have many people that care. Most of my friends turned their back.But its so hard. I really don't know what to do. Any suggestions?

P,

God has a purpose for all that we endure and most of the time we do not begin to discern that purpose except in retrospect. I have found that rejection or when we have to let go of something, it is because God has a better idea. There is an organization called Ministering to Ministers that addresses your issue. I will see if I can find the information and post it for you.

Granny, thanks for the encourageing words. Once again I do understand the past is the past but the pain is still so real. If I had done something immoral,unethical and I violated God's Word I can see that would be a reason. But that was not the case, after (8) eight years as their pastor and the growth of the church they were looking for any reason to get rid of me. To call the police during service and tell the police that the "Church" was in their name and they wanted me off their property was very unchrist like. Perhaps the most painful of all of this is to hear that they inform the member that they(deacon) had made a decision to get rid of me and there was nothing they (church) could do about it and they sit there in silence is the hardest to accept. Each and every day, I pray and ask God to give me the strength to forgive them and move forward and it's been a struggle. I guess the most troubling things I ask is "How have they (deacon/church) manage to move forward like they did NOTHING WRONG, while I still can't seem to move forward ?
I love Pastoring and look forward to getting that love and joy back of Pastoring again. Thanks again Granny, your words helped.

I don't why this has happen to you! And I really don't care to know! What I do know is that you are putting to much empathizes on that day, that event. that dilemma. It is the past! Why would you allow a moment in time to freeze you and keep you from moving forward? You are staking too much on what others think regarding your life! Do you really BELIEVE that when people see you... that that day is all they remember! EXCUSE ME but you really think TOO highly of yourself! People move on...that's what they suppose to do! Yesterday was exactly what it WAS! Yesterday! Today is a New Day and a New Dawn! A new beginning! Wake Up! Get back started. Get back up on the horse! Take your mind off that day! FOCUS ON something else...anything else...The more you start focusing on something else the better you will be able to shake this THING off! It's been 3 years....1095 days (approx.) you have fell behind...go catch up with life...LIVE...life is passing you by! God didn't create statutes...man did! Now go be what God created ...A beautiful human being living for Christ Jesus! Show the world what HE created not what man(satan) tried to destroy! Don't sit on the sidelines and watch everyone else run the race without you in it. RUN! Forest! RUN for your LIFE and you know darn well (Pastor) the victory has already been won! What ever happen in the past ...it happened and let it stay in the past (remember Lot's wife) ...kick the dust off, dig your feet down deep in the gravel and get on the mark... get ready...set ...go! Remember only Christ was PERFECT! That's why God sent Him because no man could do what Christ did...Bear that cross! live sin-less! Remember YOUR REDEEMER LIVES! He lives ...and so do you! God Bless you! Get back serving God and not man!

This has been one of the most hardest thing for me to do. As a former pastor of a church who was "Put out" of the church by the deacon and to watch as the members sit in silence while the police take me out. Three years later I still find it hard to move forward in life, because of the pain and hurt of so call Christian and the church. I am trying to but just can't seem to shake the pain. I want and need to let it go but can't. Please pray 4me.

I've been reading this sermon for as long that I've known of its existence. It never fails to encourage me to let go of things I don't have any control over and I've shared this sermon with a lot of different people. It's something I need to read more frequently and I love it! Thanks Reverend Jakes!
