Letting go is a phase that will constantly come to play in our daily lives not to mention in our life time – the countless number of times this would have to come to play!.
Many of us, in fact all of us, at a certain time of our lives or the other, have passed through some situation that recalling them are like hunting shadows in our present, like some scary dark times we just can’t get out of our heads. But really, it hurts to know that we have let those times and situations rob us of our joy and peace in God twice and more. Yes dear, twice and even more because each time you remember what had happened and you dwell on it and you develop those angry thoughts, dear!, you are shooting yourself in the heart countless times more than what had happened, that you are recalling at such time.
And as letting go is and seems a tough one. It can be achieved. I do remember I had someone I vowed never to forgive while growing up but until God dealt with me and made me see that my salvation as claimed to have wasn’t yet made complete cos I was still holding on to the individual at heart. And because I did I robbed myself a lot of many of a lot I could have achieved back then. And on this faithful day, when we had a meeting back then in my fellowship at my University. I remember the main discuss was on “letting go” and right there all I did was to burst into tears and I went on my kneels and all I kept saying (that i can remember) is – “God help me to forgive, I choose to forgive this person”. And this I said repeatedly till I felt this inner peace believing that i can truly let go and forgive beyond me just saying – “Oh, I don’t have anything against the person and all”. But did it all end that day as to me letting go and completely forgiving that individual. No!, it was one step after another, a day after the next, a constant choice to living a life of forgiveness regardless of what wakes up the thoughts or recalls it. It took a while for me to see that God needed to make me see He is the best Father in the entire world but this I wouldn’t have known if all that happened didn’t come to be. Smile, you are wondering what happened?.. ☺ (stop thinking things..😂)
But really, He walked the journey with me (reasons why I won’t Trade Him for anything and He is the bestie of all times.. ☺). He constantly and till date reminds me why I should see reasons to let go just as it comes. Even at the instance when any hurting or disappointing situation happens, He does converses with me. He breathes His words to me, He calms me. I have been broken in many ways (cos I allowed some disappointing situations cost me more than the reason why God allowed it) but He made me better. This I realised and got me determined on never allowing anything take away the Joy He alone gave and He still does give to His children.
I will say I’m proud to be joined to Him. I am glad I met Him when I did and above all I’m most glad cos He loved and still loves me even beyond the love I can ever have for myself. Isn’t that just so amazing!
So when letting go seems all tough on you dear. I am not advising you go seek some therapists and all as your first resolve. I will say – seek God, be open to Him, talk to Him (this I do a lot of times. I do express it how it is really I am feeling at that time), and above all allow Him breathe His peace into you. The amazing part of Him is He wants to walk the process unto your healing with you. So why don’t you allow Him today?. At this very minute you are reading this!. 🙇
I know letting go can be a tough one, it is!. But we can let go, this I can ascertain. When we choose to see God healing us and above all knowing that He permits it all to work together for your greater good. I’m so 💃 right now!.
All things my dear works together for your greater good!. Confess that and even when you don’t see reasons as to letting go and forgiving yourself or that fellow in that situation, see the verse below as a muse to push you towards God, who is your healing.
The verse sighted earlier:
We know that in everything God works for the good of those who love him. These are the people God chose, because that was his plan.
Romans 8:28 ERV
Do have a Graced day ahead. ☺
