    LET IT GO IN 2004 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 who left. The bible

    said, "they went out from us, but they were not of us; for if

    they had been of us, they would have continued with us: but

    they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of

    them were of 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. It doesn't mean they are a bad person. It just means

    their part in the story is over. You've got to know when

    people's part in your story is over so 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. I'm not

    hateful, I'm faithful and I know whatever God means for me to

    have He'll give it to me. 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 which 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 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 2003 as we approach 2004!! LET

    IT GO!!

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

    If God brings you to it,

    He will bring you through it.

    Happy moments, praise God.

    Difficult moments, seek God.

    Quiet moments, worship God.

    Painful moments, trust God.

    Every moment, thank God.

    "Do not be misled: 'Bad company corrupts good character.' "

    Whenever you think God has stopped listening or caring for

    you, didn't follow through on His promises or didn't answer

    your prayer(s), you most likely:

    1) misinterpreted the promise,

    2) missed the answer, or

    3) gave up before God responded.

    God ALWAYS does what He said He would.!!!!!!!

    Please pass this along... I am sure we all know SOMEONE who

    needs to just "let it GO!"...

    WOW

    I feel like you posted this just for me, too. (and it's also very beautiful) Thanks for this, PW. It's soothing to read right now, and good to keep in mind for all time. Bless you.

    thanks everyone. little sista's piece "oh god i'm still crying out to thee" really touched me. i just kept thinking about it so I had to do something. i hope she reads this from someone who hasnt walked in the same shoes, but similar ones. watz I also have a heard time letting things go sometimes, you're not alone.
