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 . . . . . . . . .

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 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!!!

He said if you're holding in to the wrong relationship to LET IT GO

I like the words, but does this endorse divorce? Just a little confused if this applies in that type of situation based on God's word on marriage.

Hello Shiru♥♥♥

Nice to hear from you. That's wonderful news and at the same time - terrible news. I had really hoped hubby would have came to his senses by now. But I'm glad you are moving forward. So many children are without a loving parent. I wish you all the best in the adoption process. May God bless you.

Who knows? After ol' "Marathon Man" sees how happy you are, maybe then he'll realize what a wonderful thing a family is and ask to join in. If he does, tell him to get on his knees first.

I get my vacation in September. I'm going to try to save enough money to visit my Sweetheart in Africa. I going to look into getting my passport next week.
Thanks for asking. Stay in touch!!!!!

I really like the way you describe things in your replies to sad and confused. Life is full of mysteries that we will never understand. Sometimes following loss of someone who is a believer, goes to church etc seem to hurt even more because we expect so much more from believing brothers. Hope sad and confused finds some comfort in your responses to her...I did

Hi BaddCatt....I hope you are well. It is a while since I wrote anything but I've been thinking and did wonder how you and your African angel are doing?

I finally decided to leave and started looking into adoption and IVF...Waiting for several appointments to pursue these.

Remain blessed!
