      Let It Go...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. [1John 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 ITGO!!!

      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 you!!!! LET IT GO!!!

      Get Right or Get Left... think about it, and then ....LET IT GO!!!

        • Yes, you are right on.  I have a hard time in Letting Go.  I treasure everything, living and non, that come into my life or cross my path.  I think it is no coincidences.  So I place great value.  Nothing with that. BUT meanwhile, like what you said, see this X... I met the object or people in cross point, then we have to go different way like the X... I must and I should Let Go.  Shake my head, dust my feet, say a little prayer, and move on.  

          I feel like I am always standing in the cross point.  Thank you for sharing.  Please kick me so I can move beyond. xoxox

        • CM: Maybe I am pushing to hard.  I should just relax and chill.  Wanna pass me a drink?  Prozac? Xanax?  Or whatever that will knock me out?

        • God is speaking to me... this is another quote from my iGoogle:

          If you don’t get everything you want, think of the things you don’t get that you don’t want.

        • CD,  Everything that you have said makes sense to me.  For me personally, I rely on my ‘gut’ to tell me when to let go.  It’s never ever failed me when I’ve listened.  I’m the one who screws things up for myself when I don’t listen.  And how about a chilled glass of Asti?

        • CD, Asti Spumante (Martini & Rossi)or Moscato di Asti.  Have a glass and relax yourself.  That’s what I intend to do when I get home this evening.  And, I’m gonna make a toast to all of my FAB40 friends.

        • Thank you Cheryl for posting LET GO.  Right now I am doing that in my life.  Presently going through therapy for major depression that I suffered many years,  it got serious, and now I am doing much better.  God is helping me with this and as one of the above said  “He is taking me to a new level”  so I am letting go so He can take me to that new level.  I am a Christian,  and married,  God is good to me, and my husband is too,  I am blessed.  The me I use to be is coming back, so watch out lol!  I confess I am a nut, love to laugh and have fun in life,  and I lost that  for awhile,  but it’s all coming back now.
          Hugs :)

        • thank you so much for posting this CM!

          so many of those fit me! for me, i think its a ” control ” thing.. having to be in control of everything! not letting God do His work in my life! the one that gets in the way is ME! the one who messes it up is ME!

          have a blessed day!

        • CM, this was right on time in so many ways for me. I am dealing with a few of these issues. This is why I love it here, so many real women and issues.

          Thanks for a wonderful eye-opener.

        • That was just what I needed to hear. I have a real bad problem with letting things go. My husband has been telling me the exact same thing and he’s really helping me with letting go. And I can really tell a difference already in myself because of some of the people and things that I have let go of. Thanks for sharing

          That blog was awesome! I love it! It is such conformation to something I have struggled with for a while, when to LET GO! You know when you just love people and want to see them succeed it is hard to Let go because you just want them to be better so bad. I have spent many hours and tears with people who just didn’t want to do the work to help themselves and it has been through many sour experiences that I finally know when to say enough is enough! You could never make someone be what they do not want to be. They have to want it more than anything. They have to want to be changed. Thanks again and amen amen amen.
          Blessings
