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
