As I was going through old archives at home I found this message by T.D. Jakes back in 2005 and knew I had to share it. Here goes.
There are people who can walk away from you and when people can walk away from you, let them walk. Don’t 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 let them go.
Your destiny is never tied to anybody that left. The Word of the Lord says, 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, 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. And it doesn’t mean that they are bad people, 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.
Choose to believe in goodbye. Not because it’s hateful but because we choose to be faithful and I know whatever God means for us to have, He’ll give it to us.
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 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 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 2016(no longer 2005).LET IT GO
LET IT GO! LET IT GO! LET IT GO!
