Let it go!!!

Its been a while since I wrote something mainly due to being down for the past two months thanks to my illness and many other issues. I have learnt a lot during my sickness,built and burnt enough bridges and let  people down.I had so much going on before I got sick that when I was down it was a major blow to most of the things I was onto including relationships.When I tried bouncing back,most people had moved on and I was more of a nag so I went into a relapse and its only last week that some things started looking promising.Today morning when I checked my mail,I got a TD Jakes sermon titled,Let them Go,forwarded to me by my uncle and it did it for me and where I am at that I decided to share it.

A dear friend of mine,Nico,always told me that people come into our lives for a reason and for a season.I don't know if I am the only one who has the wait and see syndrome,give people time to get over what they are 'going through' then they will be back,sometimes its easier to sit and wait than letting people go. 

I am into Neo-Soul so it goes without saying that Erykah Badu makes my list anyday.As i was reading the sermon,I couldnt help but think of her song,Bag Lady 

Bag lady you gone hurt your back
Dragging all them bags like that
I guess nobody ever told you
All you must hold on to
Is you, is you, is you
One day all them bags gone get in your way

Bag lady you gone miss your bus
You can't hurry up
Cause you got too much stuff
When they see you comin
Niggas take off runnin
From you it's true oh yes they do
One day he gone say you crowdin my space

As I said it can be hard letting go but you cant live life with all that baggage,you cant let people in with all that baggage,I cant get new deals with all those bags,I cant start new healthy relationships with all those bags so I need to pack light,shed all that weight,cry all those tears out and if I start breathing,then I'll feel so much better,so much better.

TD Jakes took the point home for me where he says,'You don't need to sooth people to being with you. Especially if they walk away from you. Leaving you when you most need, desire or love them.When people can walk away from you let them walk.Your destiny, love and desires are never tied to anybody that left you.' Amen to that.

So 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 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, a relationship gonna soar..... 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!!! 

Feel free to add all the things you believe you,your friends,your loved ones,your family,your clique,the society and humans need to LET GO of and share this with as many people as you can.We cant move on and still be grounded on what was.

Let the past be the past. Forget the former things.God is doing a new thing.

  1. good one, i have been here and i still hold on to dead weight but this was such a good reminder...

  2. Sure we should let a lot of things go. Their is a management book that says as a good manager one should move always forward like a shark in deep waters, because if the shark stops to move or better still looks behind or reverses which of course it does not it risks death. You sure a blessing. I let go a so called job last year and when they needed my services i still let go since i moving like a shark. God bless you Sitawa.
