LET IT GO!!!!!

Let it go for 2006 ..

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, 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 2006!!!

LET IT GO!!!

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

LET IT GO!!!

"The Battle is the Lord's!"

    I agree for the most part, but in a marriage , or in a parent-child relationship if someone is trying to walk away, it is our Scriptural responsibility to try to make them stay. Holding on, and digging in, and letting God work through us to show them that He cares and will not let them walk away is ministry in and of itself. What do you think?

  3. Where's Jim? Said:

    Sam I would say Amen to your comment as I would not be here now if Donna had let me go when I wanted to bolt. My marraige would have been “let go”. I don’t think that is what T.D. Jakes was referring to here. There are biblical examples if married to a non-believer such as in 1 Corinthians 7:15. I was reading just this morning where Hannah let go of her son Samuel as she had dedicated him to the Lord. Abraham was ready to let go of his son too. I just don’t think T.D. Jakes is suggesting we let go of our kids. There may be a time when they grow older you may have to in their own best interest. You never know.

    ok, agreed on that…I guess I should have said in a Parent-youngchild or teenager relationship.
