Let Go

There are things in our lives that we just need to let go of. You can see my post from yesterday. A friend that I need to leave behind, I need to let go of him. I need to take our friendship for its season that it was and let it go. I don't know what is holding me back.

I sometimes look at Phyllis and think how much she is like me and how hard it is for her to let go of things. I watch her and I see how hurt she is and how hard it is for her to let go, I wonder where she gets it from?

Holding on to things is downright painful. Because we hold on to past hurts that seem to paralyze us, they are like a cancer that fester and fester that make us crazy.

I really gotta work on this...

Phil 3:12-14 12Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. 13Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus

when you open up your hands to let something go; it makes them empty so God can put something better there. xos.

sometimes are strengths are also kinda weaknesses, like loyalty. fierce loyalty is a wonderful characteristic to have in a friend and anyone who finds a fiercely loyal friend is blessed beyond measure.

however, being fiercely loyal can bring us a lot of heartache and pain. I don`t believe that that is God`s will for us. When he tells us it`s time to let go, it`s time to let go
