God says there is a season for everything and the season to let go is one of them and as hard as it can be we need to follow Godís guidance when things just arenít going the way they should be. We wonder why things just do not go right when we have tried so hard to make it work. We forget that we are trying to do things by our own strength and not of Godís. He has got so much better for us, more exceedingly and abundantly than we could ever hope for ourselves. Letting go of something that is painful and that hurts our spirit is God telling us itís time to heal, time to let go and move forth and not by our strength but his can we do this successfully, life is difficult enough let alone trying to carry our burdens alone.
The hardest thing for any of us is letting go of a loved one especially if we have been rejected by them after we have tried to hold on to the relationship so tightly. Trying to change people or seeing something that isnít there is common for us whom have hearts that only want to love and give our all, and when it does not work it is the most heart breaking experience there can be. We feel broken and alone with emptiness that only God can offer comfort to and know the depth of. No one person is the same and the depth of individual pain varies greatly but usually a separation from your beloved is like a death and it is natural to grieve and grieving can take time as we have to be open to what has happened and commit the pain, hurt and anger to the Lord so he can restore your brokenness.
Holding on will only cause us to stay in the place we are not meant to be, and God wants us to move forward from the place of bitter emptiness so that we can mature in him and move on with him holding you in his hand. A time to let go and to heal is the place we are at when we feel crippled by our loses, it is the time when we are overcome the God reaches out and sayís let me heal you my gorgeous child its time so that I may prosper you in more ways than you have ever known in abundance! Happiness you have had before was only a small portion, with the Lord it will be given in his measure of fullness and overflow.
Too often we over look signs that should have warned us not to go ahead in certain areas of our lives and because we are flesh we over look them and end up in places and with people that God did not intend for us. Those gut feelings we over looked we there to protect us but in our ignorance we put trust in man and in our will rather than Gods and before we know it we are knee deep and over time of us trying to make it work or overseeing the signs we had continued to dig a ditch and buried ourselves. When it all crashes down around us we feel victimized and that sense of loss is so overcoming that we close off apart of our soul to anyone else. God doesnít want us to be closed off and he never wanted to see us end up in terrible situations but he knew before time that we would overlook his signs, but by his grace we are saved from it. Itís not until we have lost that we have hindsight of what went wrong but thatís a good place to be, we are finally moving from that dormant stage where our actions have led us in the past and now because we have learnt to see why God didnít want us there we are moving toward a new future filled with hope, we just forgot to look ahead but now the road ahead is filled a new and full of blessing. Do not look back, remember your mistakes and learn from them and understand Godís plan to prosper you! We were never meant to live in fear, anger, hurt, resentment and brokenness God has always been there we just put him second and when we have done that, and concentrated on holding onto our loved ones too tightly we became blind; it is time to see, it is time to heal, it is time to let go, and it is time for the Lord to prosper you so that you have more than enough love, more than enough finances, more than enough health to satisfy you all your long days so that you are blessed to be a blessing!
The devil robs kills and destroys, his plan is to do that in every way possible so that you become broken, filled with resentment and anger so that you miss out on Gods glory on your life and he has succeeded up until now. He put people in your path that would deceive you, lie, steal and build you up to tear you down but the stupid devil forgets that God turns all evil for the good of those whom love him and with that we become stronger, wiser and so blessed that we are grateful for our trials; for trials are to strengthen us, to refine us and to make us more than conquerors in Christ Jesus! Silly devil, yeah we may hurt and feel crushed but God is all power and we are his children, so Glory be to God for the heartaches we suffer because we have the heart of Christ for even the people that have been used by the devil bare witness to the love we have always poured out through their torment. We have turned the other cheek time and time again and though we may feel a sting and remember the affliction it does not leave a scar that cannot be healed by Gods overwhelming love for us and in that we have comfort to move forward and be healed so that this time will be a time of great things rather than a time of endless woes. God is holding out his hand and wants us to give it all to him so that we can let it go and let God.
