Some Rony Wisdom...


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. [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 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 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'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 2008!!!

LET IT GO!!!

Get Right or Get Left. Think about it, and then.....
LET IT GO!!!
The Battle is the Lord's !

Note: Please feel free to "steal" this. As I mentioned one of my dearest (you know who you are) forwarded this to me. For me it was a reminder of those who are dear to me. We can't always fret about the ones who could've been. After all, they too need to put a little effort into the relationship.....

Linda said...

Words I have tried to live by in my life.. You can never change anyone else, just yourself..so let it go. It makes you realize what stress we put on ourselves trying to change what should not be. You always post the best things....Hugs to you...Linda

April said...

Love this post. We sometimes try to hold on and we should let it go. Thanks...I just might steal this. I haven't posted for a while because what I want to say just won't come out. I think maybe this will bridge the gap. Thanks.

This is good advice & will help us all draw closer to The Lord. it is hard to have that intimacy when we are holding onto things!!

Thank you friend for your prayers, it means a lot to me that so many people who I have never met - yet we are bonded by the thread of sisterhood in Christ - are willing to storm the gates of Heaven on my behalf.

God has spoken into my story this week!! I pray as well, that He speaks into yours and gives you a fresh insight!!

Hugs ;)

Daniella said...

How I needed to read this today. I have a very close relative who for no reason (that we know of) has stopped talking to us. It has been absolutely eating me up inside. This has helped - thanks

Debz said...

This could not be more timely for me than right now. Thanks for giving me permission to use it.
I think it will be one of those things you read over and over.
Have a good week.
